YOU WERE THE JOY THAT HE WAS LOOKING AT!
By Jo Ellen Stevens
Hebrews 12: “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne
I heard this scripture in my ears and the Lord showed me a picture of himself on the cross as he was suffering. He kept His eyes on you, yes you were
the joy that was set before Him that kept Him on that cross, to finish the suffering that He was called to before the foundation of the world. I want to give Him the reward of His suffering. Because He is worthy of it! We were created for His pleasure. He
saw the relationship that he would have with you as He hung there between Heaven and earth!
All He wanted was our heart from the beginning
so He suffered and died and defeated death hell and the grave so that He could make a way for you to be in His presence for ever and ever! It is time to give Him back all the joy that he looked forward to from the beginning! On this Resurrection Morning lets
give Him the praise that He so deserves! Jesus You are our Joy!
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
Arise, Shine! Jo Ellen Stevens
