Today ladies we will be studying on True Joy, so enjoy and relax as we study.
"The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation."
Though we walk in today's world, nothing shall change who you are, or what you wear except for your convictions, and lifestyle.
Everyone knows when conviction gets to you, whether it be through the bible prayers, or something you have read, it changes you, in so many ways possible,
The way you act, when you get saved, there's a change in your life, that is set up to change you, from what is the old man to the spirit.
"Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin."
You take on a role when you get saved, to not act like the world, but to act Godly, to judge righteously, when you open your mouth, do you speak words of grace and understanding? does happiness roam your life throughout the day?
Christians of today have a problem, when you get to that road of back sliding, its hard to put the break on and back up, and turn around, yet sometimes we just can't stop. Sin is like candy to a child, sweet to the tongue but bad for the teeth. Sin is pleasurable to us at first but bad to us afterwards. Our old man (our flesh) comes back. When you have sinned, you cannot just go and you want something good to happen so you pray, God doesn't hear you, yes I just said that, yes you are saved and God doesn't hear you.
"If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me: therefore repentance is in order for God to hear your prayers, Not it's not that you being saved should get you to heaven no matter what, God is and always will be longsuffering" ~ Psalm 66:18
"The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation." ~ Numbers 14:18
"Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting." ~ 1 Timothy 1:16
He is longsuffering, and forgiving to us, life changing acts come upon us everyday, trials pass our way, but God will always be here, there is a true joy that is within us, if we are close to God.
Happiness is an emotion, that can go away in a blink of an eye, something goes wrong in your life, and happiness is no longer there, unlike happiness, true Joy can only come from God, and will only go away if you allow it to.
"Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." ~ Psalm 16:11
If we put our trust in him, he will fulfill your prayers and provide you with answers. all you have to do is trust in him.
"But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee." ~Psalm 5:11
The pure joy that you can have when you trust in God, is indescribable you can have that too, all you need is God. you can have unending joy as long as you want. as long as you will allow it.
