Things are picking up. Momentum is picking up for many.
The advanced release of joy is needed. Faith must shake hands with the expectation of joy for the momentum to continue to roll.
Joy is an infusion into your realm and is based on the truth of the nature of God's character. Release an infusion of joy to your realm, your ministry realm – verbally. It requires the words of your mouth. if you are unable to release an infusion of joy to your realm, it is because you have not invested time with your spirit realm bringing your spirit forward.
Joy comes through the spirit. Joy is the spiritual component of His presence - and comes from looking at and seeking after His nearness, His immediacy.
Psalms 16:11 You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. (NJKV)
Psalms 16:11 For you bring me a continual revelation of resurrection life, the path to the bliss that brings me face-to-face with you. (TPT)
Nearness of joy is the result of drawing near to the Father. As a small child would crawl up into her daddy’s lap, so you can crawl onto your Father’s lap. In that place of safety – you have not a care in the world. In that place of safety, you have contentment – bliss – joy unspeakable.
Nearness of joy can be received and passed to your soul. Your soul must be enlivened to joy. You must instruct your soul to cooperate with your spirit in the reception of joy to your soul’s and body’s realms. You can do this by the words of your mouth. Verbally announce joy to your realms – each of them that you know.
I announce joy to my spirit realm.
I announce joy to my soul realm.
I announce joy to my body realm.
I announce joy to my family realm.
I announce joy to my marriage’s realm.
I announce joy to my _____________ realm.
Each realm must be a receptor of joy. It must receive it.
Whenever you have resistance to the reception of any of the fruit of the spirit to any of your realms, repentance may be for believing that realm has the right to dominate from a carnal understanding. Call your understandings to yield to the truth of the Word of God and the truth coming from the realms of Heaven.
As you allow your spirit to receive joy from the Father, it is not as if your soul is receiving the joy because it has limitations on how much it can receive. Your spirit has no limitations. Your spirit can receive joy without measure.
Much worship is from the soul. It is not intended to be, but for many that is the case. When you realize your worship is from the soul, pause and call your spirit forward.
The reverse action by which you have been living – soul first has caused you to judge first, then respond. Heaven would teach you to work differently as you learn to work from the realms of Heaven.
When you teach your students to journal asking, “What does Heaven have for me today?” They need to be doing that with their spirit forward because their soul will get tired. Their soul will consider it to be laborious and will discontinue doing the exercise after only a few days. Few will persist because working out of the soul is laborious.
Many religious traditions have taught wrongly concerning joy and the reception of joy and the power of joy in the life of the believer. One such tradition says it if you request joy you have to wait a long time in The Presence of the Father. That allows their soul to begin to dictate what happens in The Presence of the Father.
Joy is in the pause.
Pause in the present to gain The Presence.
It does not take long but it does take a pause. That does not mean that the Father delays from sending joy or granting joy to his children. He desires that his children walk in joy. Unless they walk in joy they cannot walk in peace.
Many have been wounded by having joy deferred. Yes, that is a thing, just like hope deferred is a thing. Much wounding has come because of joy being deferred. Again, that goes back to wrong teaching by the church. Request of the Father healing of the trauma to your being where your joy was deferred. For many it occurred in childhood and set the course of a lack of expectation or belief that you have an inheritance of joy.
One such teaching is that your joy is dependent upon your circumstances. Joy because it is from your spirit is never dependent upon circumstances.
Habakkuk 3:17-19 Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines; though the labor of the olive may fail, and the fields yield no food; though the flock may be cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls-- 18 Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. 19 The LORD God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer's feet, and I will conquer by His song. (Septuagint)
Another such teaching is that joy must be earned. Another false teaching is that joy must be developed out of your discipline. Does not My Word say in Psalms that in my presence is fullness of joy and at my right hand are pleasures for evermore?
