DRAWING FROM THE WELLS
OF SALVATION Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation (Isaiah 12:3).

I made up my mind years ago, while I was still a student, to always be happy. I found out early from the Word that nobody was sent to make me happy, because Jesus already accomplished all that’s needed to give me joy unspeakable and full of glory; I’ve got joy in my spirit. So, always be excited about the things of God. Don’t wait for someone to make you happy.

Having received salvation, joy comes from within you—your spirit. The Bible says, “Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation” (Isaiah 12:3). Happiness is a state of mind and it’s one of the fruits of joy. Then you have other fruits of joy: laughter, shouting, singing, and dancing. And did you know giving is also one of the fruits of joy? When you’re full of joy, you give. Have you ever noticed that when somebody is asking you for something at the moment that you’re full of joy, it’s almost always a “yes”? You hardly are able to just turn them down or reject something offered or proposed or say “no” to them.

Same way, when we’re full of joy in the presence of the Lord, you don’t have to ask for anything. All that matters is that there’s a desire in your heart. As you express joy, those desires are granted. The Bible says, “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart” (Psalm 37:4). It’s one of those things that praise and worship make happen for you.

Don’t miss the praise and worship services of the church. They’re very important. You’ll find that your lists of prayer requests will reduce; you’d not have to pray about so many things. As you delight yourself in
the Lord, He’ll give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.

CONFESSION

I’m always cheerful and exuberant with praise, knowing that as I delight myself in the Lord, He grants me all the desires and secret petitions of my heart. My life is a bundle of joy and happiness. The joy of the Lord in my heart is my strength, and with joy, I draw out excellence, victories, prosperity, peace, success, health and other wonderful blessings from the deep recesses of my spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
