Rejoice in the Lord always – Dr. Paul Dhinakaran
“You will find your joy in the Lord, and I will cause you to ride in triumph on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob.” (Isaiah 58:14)
My precious friend, may the Lord God bless you and give you great joy this month. We are starting a new financial year, and I pray that God’s prosperity and sufficiency will overflow in your life. Everything about your life shall be perfected, and you will be set free to enjoy every blessing that is in Christ Jesus. You will know Him and you will be led to enjoy all that He has prepared for you. Let not your heart be troubled or worried. God Himself will give you this grace to enjoy His blessings in full measure.
There are three blessings that God wants to give you: Fullness of joy, praise and honor and blessings in full measure. Yes, you will have all the joy because on the cross, Jesus, was a man of sorrows acquainted with grief. Beloved, it is to bless you with joy and take away your sorrow and grief that Jesus went through this agony. Yes, your sorrows will turn into joy! “He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.” (Isaiah 53:3) So, the Lord Jesus wants you to enjoy and receive the joy which He purchased by going through sorrow and grief on the cross.
Next, the Lord will make you ascend to higher places. “I will cause you to ride in triumph on the heights of the land.” The Bible says the Lord Jesus was lifted up so that He can draw all men unto Himself. He says, “I will give them praise and honor in every land where they have suffered shame” (Zephaniah 3:19). Yes, God wants you to have honor and be lifted up to high places. It is for this reason, Jesus went to the cross and as He died on the cross, He went to where the souls were kept after death. The Bible says, He descended into the depths to preach the Gospel to the souls who were waiting for Christ (1Peter 3:18, 19). Without Jesus Christ, no one can enter into Heaven, because there is no other name on earth by which men can be saved and cleansed from sins but by the Name of Jesus.
“I will make you ride on the high places of the earth, and I will feed you with the promised heritage of Jacob your father” (Isaiah 58:14). Today, your Father is the Lord Jesus Christ, who has purchased you with His blood. See what the Bible says about this priceless purchase: “Which He (Jesus) bought with His own blood” (Acts 20:28). Let not your heart be troubled. Jesus has purchased you with His own blood to make you His child. Therefore, every blessing of your Father will be fulfilled in your life. God bless you.
Thank You for this promise of providing me joy, honor and blessings. Thank You for Your mercies to provide me with the finest blessings. Wash me in Your blood and bless me with everything for which You died for.
In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen.
