Father, thank you for anointing us with the oil of gladness! You were glad when you set us apart from this world. You gave us joy unspeakable and full of glory. Jesus, thank you for being our joy which makes us strong and thank you for making us your joy which inspired you to endure the cross.
Church, rise up to the occasion! Be endowed with joy! Do what you are called to do so you can enter the joy of the Lord. Be full of hope and behold the Prince of Peace. Don’t let the enemy’s hopelessness become yours. Do not grow weary or discouraged. Encourage yourself in your Lord. Be of good courage not looking to the right nor to the left.
Church, take your proper place! Do not forfeit your birthright for a bowl of comfort. You cannot be depressed. You carry light, joy, and peace. You carry what the world desperately needs. Don’t let anything steal your joy. Don’t let anything make or break your day. This is the day that the Lord makes. Don’t let circumstances define you. Don’t let society define you. Don’t let worldly ambitions dictate how happy you should be. Only let the fact that Father gave His Son define love to you and stand on it. Establish your heart in it.
Don’t be confused! Know who your Husband, Father, and Mentor is. Know who you are in Him and who He is in you. Know what He says and abide in Him. You’ll walk in freedom if you do. You’ll get to experience the liberty already purchased for you. You’ll never believe lies and deceit. You will not be deceived if you allow His word to define you, encourage you, instruct and correct you. Church, receive, believe, obey and delight in His word! Rise up Church!
Thank you, Lord! You made the church to be light and salt. Thank you that you are her Lord indeed. Thank you that she becomes a living sacrifice. Thank you that she is not conformed to this world. Thank you that her mind is renewed. Thank you that we as your church prove your will which is acceptable, good, and perfect.

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. John 15:4 NKJV
For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Romans 8:20-22 NKJV
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1-2
Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 2 Corinthians 5:16 KJV
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23
