Fanning Your Embers of Joy by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Fanning Your Embers of Joy by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I
say, Rejoice (Philippians 4:4).

Joy is a fruit of the recreated human spirit,
something inherent in you. It doesn’t matter
what news or event tries to make you
unhappy; you can always be joyful in the Holy Ghost,
for such is the Kingdom of God. Romans 14:17 says,
“For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but
righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.”

Ephesians 5:18-19 reveals how you can be full of
the joy of the Holy Ghost always. It says, “And be not
drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with
the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns
and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your
heart to the Lord.”

This was one of Apostle Paul’s secrets of success;
he wrote what we read in our opening verse, while in
prison. He was full of joy, and continued to preach the
Gospel in prison. In his letter to the Church at Ephesus,
he said Pray for me: “…that I may open my mouth
boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein
I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak ” (Ephesians
6:19-20). Notice the underlined portion; he didn’t allow
his experience to dictate his mood or interfere with the
joy of the Lord in his heart.

In your life, see challenges as opportunities to
manifest the glory of God; that way, you’ll always be
full of joy. James 1:2 says, “My brethren, count it all
joy when ye fall into divers temptations.” Romans 8:28  says, “And we know that all things work together for
good to them that love God, to them who are the called
according to his purpose.”

The Word should form the basis for your joy at all
times. When you interprete and respond to situations
on the basis of God’s Word, you’ll discover that nothing
in life could give you a bad day, or be to your
disadvantage, because your joy comes through the
Word and the Spirit of God.

CONFESSION
The Lord Jesus, through His vicarious death and
triumphant resurrection, has brought me into the life
of unlimited joy, victory, dominion and righteousness.
Therefore, I rejoice evermore, with joy unspeakable,
and full of glory. My joy is of the Holy Ghost, and it
knows no bounds. Hallelujah!
