Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne:
“In Your presence is fullness of joy”
Praise God! Your Abba Father has a beautiful “fullness of joy” awaiting you, right now, in His presence.
There is always a “fullness of joy” for us in the presence of our Lord. Sometimes we know that joy as soon as we enter His presence. Other times “fullness of Joy” overtakes us as we linger in the presence of our God, “to behold the beauty of the Lord” (Psalm 27:4).
When we minister as priests to our Lord, we are always in the presence of “fullness of joy.”
God desires to continually fill us with His joy as we enter His presence, for His joy fortifies us and builds us up in our lives, even as it written in the book of Nehemiah, “Do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10).
If you are feeling empty right now, then I encourage you to enter the presence of your gracious Lord and allow Him to fill you anew with His joy, which is the joy of Him, Himself, for “In Your presence is fullness of joy.” Yes, be filled!
If you are not empty, I encourage you to enter the presence of your Lord and let Him top you off with His joy so you may remain aware of His “fullness of joy” within you throughout this day.
As you enter God’s presence, with the desire and understanding to minister to your Lord, then you are truly awake as a participant in His presence. You are His priest with a purpose; to praise and adore your Lord. And, in doing so, you become transformed by your Lord and filled with the joy of Himself within you, even as you minster to Him. Praise our Lord, for He is so worthy to be praised. The result of this beautiful time of being in God’s presence is seen as you go out into this world, with His “fullness of Joy,” filled anew so “that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9).
Enter the marvelous light of God’s presence now, as a minister to your Lord, and let His fullness of joy fill you. Hallelujah!
