Joy Unspeakable

19 Aug

God’s Word: John 14

God’s message to me:

I sent Jesus to planet earth on a mission for Me—to give you joy unspeakable.  He completed that mission by showing mankind that He was my representative and the Way into My presence, to speak the truth about My Being, and to suffer and die in order to purchase redemption for all who will believe.  That He was my representative was demonstrated over and over during His lifetime, by the miracles He performed.  And after He was crucified and died, He returned to life after three days.  Over 500 people saw Him alive after his death.  These things are historical facts.

How do these facts impact your life?  Do they make any difference in how you spend your hours and days?  Jesus came to give you life abundant & a joy unspeakable—both on earth and throughout eternity.  We know you intimately and love you deeply.  My Word, the Bible is My love letter to you.  It explains in detail the history of My working on planet earth—through ordinary people just like you.  Have you read my letter?

My Word is like no other written word.  Other writings give mere insights, information and direction.  It’s up to you how to apply that to your life.  But when you read My Word My very Spirit interacts with your spirit to give you insights, information and direction that is personalized just for you. You are never alone!  As you draw near to Me, through my Word and prayer, I draw near to you.   My peace is yours in abundance, bathed in a joy unspeakable—no matter the circumstances of your life.

God’s Question for me: How long has it been since you looked to My Word to hear what I have to say, just for you?

God’s Promise to me:  “I will not leave you orphaned.  I’m coming back to get you so you can live where I live.”

My prayer to God:

Adoration—Your Word gives my life a joy unspeakable and full of glory.  I haven’t words enough to tell of your amazing love that fills my life.

Confession—I can’t believe how often I ignore your joy and peace instead of grasping it.

Thanksgiving—I am so thankful that without a doubt, You are there waiting for me to turn my thoughts to You.

Supplication—Help me to live as a reflection of Your love, joy and peace to those with my life touches.

My Song to God:  Joy Unspeakable!

I have found His grace is all complete,
He supplieth every need;
While I sit and learn at Jesus’ feet,
I am free, yes, free indeed.

Refrain:
It is joy unspeakable and full of glory,
Full of glory, full of glory;
It is joy unspeakable and full of glory,
Oh, the half has never yet been told.

I have found the pleasure I once craved,
It is joy and peace within;
What a wondrous blessing, I am saved
From the awful gulf of sin.

Refrain

I have found that hope so bright and clear,
Living in the realm of grace;
Oh, the Savior’s presence is so near,
I can see His smiling face.

Refrain

I have found the joy no tongue can tell,
How its waves of glory roll;
It is like a great o’erflowing well,
Springing up within my soul.

Refrain
