The Joy of the Lord
The convenience of sermon audios on the joy of the Lord is a blessing for people who find it difficult to remain hopeful in the face of modern trials. Imagine being raised in a working family. One day your family decides to make you leave home. After that, you are thrust into a strange country where all of your notions of family and heritage are lost. And after decades of being a servant, you are then allowed to have the rights of a citizen in that country. Joseph was someone who lived this scenario. He amazingly found hope and encouragement from trusting God. Joseph found joy through adversity.
Psalm 30:5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
Did you know that joy is not just an ideal? It is a commandment! In Psalm 100:2, we are told to “serve the Lord with gladness.” For Christians, Luke says, “Rejoice that ‘our’ names are written in Heaven.” (Luke 10:20)
Joy Through Adversity
Part of the depth of God’s love involves a guarantee that joy and gladness are possible in every type of struggle. The Holy Spirit was sent as our comforter after Jesus returned to be with the Father.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
Listening to sermon audios on joy reminds listeners that this is true. The human notion of joy is quite limited. We tend to only express joy when good things happen to us. The Lord’s joy means owning a sense of gladness and peace throughout any type of situation. This is something that only people who know the intimacy of salvation can enjoy.
1 Peter 1:8-9 Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
Sermon Audios on Joy
There are very few places in the world where someone can hear reviving words regarding this type of peace. One sure place is a trusted source for accurate and timely messages about grace and happiness. Hearing sermon audios on Joy of the Lord is a powerful way to learn how peace and happiness can be part of life whenever troubles arise. Rejoice, for He is good all the time!
Psalm 32:11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
Modern people tend to think of life as a battle between good and evil. They hope that the tide will sway toward a positive end. True encouragement lies in trusting God, and knowing that He has already triumphed over evil. Therefore, there is no reason for any discouragement. That is the reason joy should be a continual part of every Christian’s life. There is no trouble experienced in the “here-and-now” that has not already been conquered by the power of God. Allow the Holy Spirit to gift a sense of this through prayer, and boost your attitude with sermon audios on joy as a tool in renewing your spirit.
When living in the presence of the Lord and walking by faith, experiencing joy will be the norm. Helping others can also give you great joy. That’s why in Matthew 22:37-39
And he said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: shall love your neighbor as yourself.
Body, Soul, and Spirit
We are a spirit with a soul in a body. And, the flesh is at war for the soul of man. The devil comes to steal our joy, hope, happiness and everything that is good. He is the father of lies and a great deceiver. Once we understand who and what we are, joy will be in our hearts. There is no greater love than the love of our Father in Heaven.
