Supernatural joy

Posted by appolus on December 6, 2020

Supernatural joy does not come about because of favorable circumstances but rather it comes in the midst of suffering, and not just suffering, but suffering for His sake. All human beings will suffer in their lives. Suffering in and of itself can produce no joy. Yet, to suffer for the sake of Jesus is to bring down or rather raise up the Holy Spirit in our lives. We are raised up to higher ground ahead of the incoming flood. To praise Jesus in the midst of our sufferings is to enter into the fact that He overcame the world. To praise Jesus in the midst of sufferings is to open up the door that leads to glory.

Jesus told us that in this world we would have trouble, but what did He say “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” Be of good cheer, meaning to take comfort and be courageous. The scriptures tell us that He spoke these things so that we may have peace in the midst of tribulation. Peace, comfort, courage and joy. This is the state of those who are walking in the Spirit along the narrow path and through the floods and through the fires. Be courageous today my brothers and sisters in Christ, this suffering of yours is not for your destruction but rather for His glory.
