Nothing Impossible

July 20, 2011

Matthew 17:20 AMP … He said to them, Because of the littleness of your faith [that is, your lack of firmly relying trust]. For truly I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

Living faith is
Abiding vitally untied to the vine.

Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me. I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing. -Jn 15:4-5 AMP

To him who believes
… who has a living faith
… who has faith, confidence and a firmly relying trust in Jesus
All things are possible!

All things are possible to him who believes. Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” -Mk 9:23-24

Live in Me, and I will live in you
that My joy will live and endure in you,
and that your joy may be full, complete, perfect, lacking nothing.

Living faith produces the fruit of joy; everlasting joy. -Jn 15:16

You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. -Ps 16:11

These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. -Jn 15:11

Don’t be afraid; just believe. -Mk 5:36

The Joy of the Lord

April 6, 2011

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, … How does the fruit of the Spirit – joy, manifest?

From Netbible Gal 5:22 joy[5479] means to rejoice exceedingly, to take great, exceeding, full delight in

Look how the Lord himself expresses joy. Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is with you{in your midst}, He is mighty{a victorious warrior} to save; He will exult[07797] over you with great joy[08057], He will quiet you{renew you} with His love, He will rejoice[01523] over you with singing[07440].

From Netbible Zeph 3:17  exult[07797] means to display joy joy[08057] means to celebrate, take great pleasure in rejoice[01523] means to spin, circle, whirl round (under the influence of any violent emotion) – expressing joy singing[07440] means to proclaim praise, shout joy – triumph/overcome

The Lord shows His joy here by taking great pleasure in and celebrating with singing, shouts of joy AND whirling, spinning around. Psalm 16:11  You will show me the path of life; In Your presence[06440] is fullness[07648] of joy[08057]; At Your right hand are pleasures[05273] forevermore.

From NetBible Zeph 3:17Ps 16:11  presence[06440] means before the face of joy[08057] in Ps 16:11 is the same as Zeph 3:17 means to celebrate, take great pleasure in fullness[07648] means to be filled with abundance, satisfied pleasures[05273] delight, sweetness, sweet music /singing

Doesn’t this sound like King David as he danced before the Lord? 2 Samuel 6:12-16Now King David was told, “The LORD has blessed the household of Obed-Edom and everything he has, because of the ark of God.” So David went to bring up the ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David with rejoicing[08057]. 13 When those who were carrying the ark of the LORD had taken six steps, he sacrificed a bull and a fattened calf. 14 Wearing a linen ephod, David was dancing[03769] before[06440] the LORD with all his might[05797] , 15 while he and all Israel were bringing up the ark of the LORD with shouts and the sound of trumpets. 16 As the ark of the LORD was entering the City of David, Michal daughter of Saul watched from a window. And when she saw King David leaping [06339] and dancing [03769] before [06440] the LORD, she despised him in her heart.

From NetBible Zeph 3:17 & 2 Sam 6:12-16  rejoicing in 2 Sam 6:12 is the same as Zeph 3:17 – joy[08057] means to celebrate, take great pleasure in From the root[08056] means to show glee, joy with the whole disposition, whole heart From the root[08055] means to brighten up – the whole disposition, whole heart dancing[03769] in 2 Sam 6:14 is similar to rejoice[01523] in Zeph 3:17 they mean to spin, circle, whirl might[05797] in 2 Sam 6:14 means strength, power, boldness in praise leaping[06339] in 2 Sam 6:16 means strong bounding, springing From root [06338] meaning refined pure gold before [06440] in 2 Sam 6:14 means before the face of, in the presence of

Glorious

July 16, 2009

Psalm 66:1-4   Shout joyfully to God, all the earth; 
2Sing the *glory of His name; Make His praise *glorious. 
3Say to God, “How awesome are Your works! Because of the greatness of Your power Your enemies will give feigned obedience to You. 
4All the earth will worship You and will sing praises to You;
      They will sing praises to Your name.” Selah. 

Psalm 16:8-11    I have set the LORD always before me;
         Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. 

 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my *glory rejoices;
         My flesh{life} also will rest{secure} in hope.
 10 For You will not leave my soul in Sheol,
         Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
 11 You will show me the path of life;
         In Your presence is fullness of joy; 
         At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
