One of the cultures of heaven is joy and rejoicing. God is a joyful God and in His presence is fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11). One full third of the kingdom of God is joy (Romans 14:17)!
CS Lewis wrote that ‘Joy is the serious business of heaven’, and we are very serious about taking joy and laughter to the ends of the earth, turning the world upside-down, bringing transformation, and releasing joy on earth – as it is in heaven!
And we are just crazy and passionate enough to believe that it can be done! ‘Not one promise from God is empty of power, for nothing is impossible with God!’ (Luke 1:37 TPT) READ MORE BELOW...
Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
The world is desperate for hope in these troubled times! As believers, we have the joy of the Lord (Nehemiah 8:10) on the inside and outside… joy is innate within us as the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). We are immersed in joy… and it is time to release the joy of heaven on earth!
And yes, God is sitting in the heavens laughing at the plans of the enemy – let’s partner with Him and laugh too! That’s the vision – to join our voices in unison, and laugh with God!
He who sits [enthroned] in the heavens laughs [at their rebellion]; the [Sovereign] Lord scoffs at them [and in supreme contempt He mocks them].
Psalm 2:4 (AMP)
The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.
O Lord I ask for the nations...
You said, “Ask and you will receive,
Whatever you need.”
You said, “Pray and I'll hear from heaven,
And I'll heal your land.”
You said “Your glory will fill the earth,
Like water the sea.”
You said, “Lift up your eyes;
The harvest is here, the kingdom is near.”
You said, “Ask and I'll give the nations to you.”
Oh Lord, that's the cry of my heart.
Distant shores and the islands will see
Your light, as it rises on us.
Oh, Lord, I ask for the nations!
