Adoration

In the Joy Room, we behold His face as "The God of Joy."  He is its author, and Joy has a purpose!

Lord, there is no one like You! You are our Beautiful, Joy-filled God whose Goodness and Love radiates throughout all Your creation.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, 

peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 

gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Galatians 5:22-23

 

You are our Heavenly Father who laughs, sings, dances and delights, and our hearts are at such peace knowing we are loved by a joy-filled Father. 

I have told you this so that my joy may be in you

and that your joy may be complete.

John 15:11

 

You love your children so well and we never need to question Your Heart toward us. Your Hope and desires for us, and for the nations, are  filled with Your joy...Your mighty and wonderful joy.

 

And as He approached the descent from the Mount of Olives, 

the whole multitude of disciples began to praise God joyfully in a loud voice 

for all the mighty deeds they had witnessed. 

Luke 19:37

Joy is Your starting point, it is who You are...and because of this, it is our strength. You have generously created us to be strengthened by understanding who You truly are and aligning our hearts with Yours, our God of Joy.

"The Bride belongs to the Bridegroom. 

The friend of the Bridegroom stands and listens for Him, 

and is overjoyed to hear the Bridegroom’s voice. 

That joy is Mine, and it is now complete."

John 3:29

The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. 

When a man found it, he hid it again, and in his joy he went and sold all he had 

and bought that field. 

Matthew 13:44

 

You have called us to be a Joyful people, to operate in Joy, because You do!  You are the God of Joy!

Thank You, Abba.
