OUR MOUTHS WERE FILLED WITH LAUGHTER,
OUR TONGUES WITH SONGS OF JOY
By Elaine Tavolacci
This past year just about every one of us had endured some type of adversity or dilemma. Many believers have lost the joy that
they once had. They are burdened down with worries, sickness and fatigue. The Holy Spirit wants to restore joy and release laughter to His people. A great time of rejoicing is coming to those who have been going through a difficult season.
We have all battled something or been held captive to something this year, and the enemy is trying to enslave people once again through sickness, financial problems, family issues, fears and addictions. Whatever difficulty you are facing right now,
Jesus wants to release you and restore joy back into your life.
In the book of Psalms chapter 126 the Israelites said that it was like a dream come true when the Lord freed them from their bondage and
brought them back to Zion. Their mouths were filled with laughter, and their tongues with singing. In the days of Nehemiah, when they came back from Persia at the decree of Ezra, they were rejoicing when they realized that they were able to go back and rebuild
the walls of Jerusalem. The Lord wants to rebuild the things in your life that the enemy tried to dismantle.
The Lord says, I am rebuilding those areas of your life that the enemy tried to
destroy. I will replace those things that have been lost or stolen. I will remove the heavy burdens and the weights that have weighed you down. Shackles will be broken, and captives will be released. The strongholds that have held you prisoner are coming off.
I am releasing the prisoners of war, and returning them home once again. I am healing the brokenhearted and setting the captives free. I will restore the years that the locusts have eaten.
Allow Me to
release you from habits that you are not able to overcome on your own, lifestyles that you are not able to change, and renew old mindsets and negative ways of thinking. Allow Me to be Lord over every area of your life. Allow Me to free you from the bondages
that are keeping you from walking in freedom. I will break the restraints that are holding you back from walking in your calling.
Take the limits off Me in what I am able to do. Although you are in a difficult
season, victory shall be yours and joy and laughter shall return to you. As you have sown in tears, you shall reap in joy. You will go out with joy and be sent forth with peace. This is the Covenant that I have made with you; says the Lord.
When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter,
and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them. The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad. Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the south. They that sow in tears shall
reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
you shall go out with joy, and be led out with peace; The mountains and the hills
shall break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
You have made known to me the paths of life; You will fill me with joy in your presence.
