Joy to the World
“Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19 AMP
Joy to the World, the Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing!
Joy to the World, the Savior reigns
Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat, repeat the sounding Joy!
No more will sin and sorrows grow
Nor thorns infest the ground
He comes to make His blessings known
Far as the curse is found!
He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love!
This song! It’s been playing on repeat the last week. It’s message bringing so much hope. I don’t know why, but the words and truth of this song just spoke loudly to me this year. It’s like God is saying, “My love has come to Earth and His name is Jesus! Because of Him, there is now a great light amongst you. He will be a Counselor and a Prince of Peace for you and there will not be an end to His Kingdom. He reigns forever in goodness, grace, and strength. So receive Him! Prepare Him room! And sing, sing, sing along with the heavenly hosts for Love has come to save you.”
The curse that was upon us, He came to break that chain. We rejoice and celebrate because He comes to make His blessings known. And as far as the curse can be found, Gods blessings are greater and overtake and overshadow it all. If this good news doesn’t fill our hearts with joy, what will? To be favored of the Lord is a gift that we can be forever thankful for! I pray His blessings are made known to you and overflow in you! May Jesus be a wellspring of hope bursting out of you.
This season is meant to be one of refreshing and renewal, so that we can start the next year (and the next season in life) with strength and hope. There is so much Jesus wants to give us this Christmas. Let us sit down and see which gifts He has for us! Let us sit down at the table of His Word and with great anticipation receive His blessings! God has been bringing this thought to my mind: I give you this season as a stepping stone, as a springboard. It’s a burst of energy. Receive and take ahold of its goodness! Don’t waste this season! You need its strength to go into the next one. Build yourselves up!
I pray:“Now may God, the inspiration and fountain of hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable joy and perfect peace as you trust in him. And may the power of the Holy Spirit continually surround your life with his super-abundance until you radiate with hope!” In Jesus Name, we say, Amen. Romans 15:13 TPT
