“Being Filled with Spiritual Joy”

1 Peter 1:6-7In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, (NKJV)

My fellow Christian…when your faith is being tested as you go through life’s worst trial…is the joy of the Lord filling your heart, mind, and soul ??  This Spiritual joy comes through the power of the Holy Spirit, when He (Christ Himself) floods your heart…

Jesus tells us about this Spiritual joy, after telling His disciples (at The Last Supper), that He must leave them, to go be with His Father…  Jesus then promises His disciples a room in His Father’s mansion in heaven…John 14:1-3

And then Jesus tells His disciples (and us) this, in…

John 15:11…  “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.”  (NKJV)

These words from Jesus should calm your heart, just as Jesus spoke them to calm the hearts of His disciples…  But dear Christian, you must submit your life to Christ (James 4:6-7), and allow the Holy Spirit to take total control of all that you say and do… The Apostle Paul commands this, in…

Ephesians 5:18-20…   And do not get drunk with wine,  for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, 20 giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,  (ESV)

There is a link in 1) below, for an excellent description of what a Spirit filled, Christ centered life should look like…  Read it and be blessed !!

Gracious God and heavenly Father, I pray that Your living and powerful Word, would cut right to the bone and marrow of Your redeemed children…“discerning the thoughts and intentions of their heart”Hebrews 4:12-13…  I pray they would understand that You would fill them with Spiritual joy, if they would seek Your face…confess, repent, and turn from any and all sins (1 John 1:9)…and walk in and by the full power of the Holy Spirit…Galatians 5:16…  I pray for this fullness of joy, for each and every one of Your redeemed children…in Jesus’ most precious name and for His sake…Amen…

Blessings in Christ,  bruce
