You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11 AMP
You have made known to me the ways of life; You will enrapture me [diffusing my soul with joy] with and in Your presence. Acts 2:28 AMP
…the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10 KJV
In God’s presence is fullness of joy and the joy of the Lord is our strength! When we get to know Him and His ways of life, He fills us with His joy. His presence is available for every born-again believer to live in – right here and right now. We do not have to wait till we are in Heaven. We can know His presence and His touch.
In 1989, the Lord poured out His Spirit on the ministry of Rodney and Adonica Howard-Browne, and revival came to the Church. One of the hallmarks of this move of God was the joy that was poured out on God’s people. This is not a move of man, but a move of the Holy Spirit – God touching His people - cleaning them out, burning out everything of the world and the devil, and branding Jesus on their hearts, so that when people see them, they see Jesus!
Countless lives have been touched and changed forever: people saved, set free, restored, and called to ministry. Lives and relationships have been saved and set on the right track. Most importantly, people fall in love with Jesus again – He becomes their first love. What the Lord does when He touches the lives of those who yield to Him is MORE THAN LAUGHTER.
