"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]
in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB
JOY SUPERCEDES "UNHAPPINESS"
Words of prophecy:
it not written that all those who have sowed in tears will reap in joy, and go forth with joyful shouting? Truly I say to you, your hour has come, and exceedingly great shall be the joy that floods your being - for you are one with My heart. And, because of
these things, a great and "abiding" strength and courage shall be with you continually - right to the end of the age.
____ ...."When the LORD brought back the captive ones of Zion, we were
like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter and our tongue with joyful shouting; Then they said among the nations, "The Lord has done great things for them.' The LORD has done great things for us; We are glad...... Those who sow in tears
shall reap with joyful shouting. He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying [his] bag of seed, shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves [with him.]".... Psalms 126:1-6 NASB
joyful heart is good medicine [works healing]".... Proverbs 17:22a The Amplified Translation
