Whenever you gather together in praise of Me, I Am very happy and more than happy that My children remember Me. I Am happy! If you’re praising Me, My heart is always full of joy. If you’re praising Me, it moves Me to do a new thing in your life. But Am I happy for you? It’s a question. I Am happy in your praises, I Am happy for Myself. Am I happy for you? Of what benefit is it for you to praise Me day and night and I cannot eat with you? Of what benefit is it for you to praise Me day and night and you get nothing from it? This is the reason why I said I Am not happy for you. I Am the Almighty God. I Am the Great I Am That I Am. Sin is an abomination to Me.
Why do you gather at My house? Why do you gather to praise and worship Me? Even if you gather together because of what you want, you will at least drop everything you hold in your hands before you can receive from Me. If your hands are full, which other hands will you use to receive the one I’ll give to you? You’re praising Me in sorrow; how can you receive from Me because My Spirit doesn’t dwell in the midst of sorrow? You cannot receive anything from Me if your heart isn’t settled.
Whenever you gather together, you also gather with all the strangers you carry. All of you carry many strangers in your body. But I didn’t put them there. I didn’t create you with strangers together. I created you with a pure heart. I gave you clean and pure Spirit. You know how these strangers entered your body. And you also know how to get rid of them. If you want Me to get rid of them for you, I can do it; however, you will die. You will die if I force demons out of your body!
Whenever you’re eating what’s sweet, you forget that one day you’ll vomit it. I dwell in the praise of My children, in the praise of those whose heart is pure. If you’re serving Me, if you’re praising Me, Heaven is supposed to be your destination. But unfortunately, you’re far away from Heaven. All of you are no way near there. Your heart is far away from Heaven, and your soul is married with the things of this Earth. Until you wash your hands clean, until you wash your heart clean, until your heart is pure, this is the only way your praise will yield you a good return.
As a human being, all you need to do every day is to praise the Father. You have nothing else to give to Him because He’s done everything for you. But instead of praises, groaning, bitterness, and sorrow engulf your heart. Why? Because of sin! If you’re serving God and you’re far away from your blessing, how will you live the life He purposed for you to live? If you’re in His presence and sorrow takes over your entire being, how will something good happen to you? But the Bible says in the Book of Psalms 16:11, “You will make known to me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; in Your right hand there are pleasures forever.”
Many Christians are serving the Father in ignorance. If you move around all our churches, Christians are of the notion that God will always make them rich, especially in the area of their finance. Good health and a good life are more than riches and wealth. Moses the Arthur neither sow nor reap; he had neither a house nor a piece of land, yet, his name will never be erased in history. When Naaman visited Prophet Elisha, the man of God didn’t come out to him, rather, he sent Gehazi his messenger to him. The Word of God through him will never be erased. The fact that you’re not financially buoyant doesn’t mean God is not on your side. If God is on your side, you’re more than a winner. If God is on your side, you’re more than the richest man on Earth. You know where you’re going, but he – the richest man doesn’t know where he’s going.
If you understand and know everything the Father has done for you, your heart will be full of joy every day. If you know what the Father has done for you, you’ll not allow sorrow to have a place in your heart, rather, you’ll always sing a new song to Him all the time. For you to get to this level, you must wash your hands clean in everything and embrace the Word of the Father wholeheartedly. This is the only way the spirit of sorrow and bitterness will be exchanged with the Spirit of joy and peace. I pray for you today that the Holy Spirit will surround your heart with His joy and peace throughout this journey so that you can always see the positive side of what the Father is doing in your life in Jesus name. Amen! May the Lord give you the grace to walk with Him in Jesus name.
