ZChurch message for November 27, 2021 (full service at https://youtu.be/lal56XLr4R0)
The joy of the Lord is your strength. It’s challenging for people to be happy with everything that’s going on in the world. On this episode of ZChurch, Pastor Larry teaches us how to be happy all the time.
1 Peter 1:8 (KJV) Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory;
James 1:2 (KJV) My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
John 16:33 …In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
Hebrews 12:2 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 of God.
Nehemiah 8:10… for the joy of the Lord is your strength.
Psalm 16:11 You will show me the path of life: in Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Psalm 45:7 …God, has anointed You with the oil of joy above your companions.
Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Psalm 100:4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
2 Corinthians 8:2 How that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality.
John 16:24 Until now you have asked nothing in My name, Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
Hebrews 12:1-2 (TPT) As for us, we have all of these great witnesses who encircle us like clouds. So we must let go of every wound that has pierced us and the sin we so easily fall into. Then we will be able to run life’s marathon race with passion and determination, for the path has been already marked out before us. 2 We look away from the natural realm and we focus our attention and expectation onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection. His example is this: Because his heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be his, he endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!
Prophecy by Pastor Larry – “Yes, some difficult times are coming. Difficult times are ahead, but it’s nothing to fear and it’s nothing to dread, because it’s going to work out good, just as Jesus said. There will be afflictions; there will be trials, but we’re going to make it in grand and glorious style. While others are worried and wringing their hands, we’re going to be celebrating and ruling and reigning in this land because you have the joy of the Lord. And joy makes you an overcomer and you’re going to succeed. So don’t worry about what might be on the horizon. The joy of the Lord will make you free.”
