The Seed Of Joy was taught by Rev. Dunamis Okunowo on the 5th of December 2021 at Shouts of Grace Center, Joke Plaza, Beside Trans Amusement Park, Bodija-UI Road, Ibadan.
In his teaching, Rev. Dunamis made mention of the following important points:
Joy is one of the ways that the Kingdom of God is described.
For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.Romans 14:17 (KJV)
And in Mark 4:26-28, the Bible likens the Kingdom of God to a seed.
And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.Mark 4:26-28 (KJV)
Therefore joy is a seed. Joy is a seed that will surely produce when you plant it.
What the joy of the LORD brings to you is beyond money; the money is simply the manifestation of the joy. Your money is in your joy. Your breakthrough is in your joy.
Learn to give expression to your joy – you can laugh it, jump it, shout it, etc.
If you can freely be sad; why can’t you choose to be freely joyful.
Joy can turn any situation around. Joy releases miracles.
God wants you joyful.
Stop waking up on the wrong side of bed; Learn to wake up on the joy side of the bed.
For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap [their] hands.Isaiah 55:12 (KJV)
You shall go out of 2021 with joy, not in pain, agony or losses. Irrespective of what the story has been so far, you will step out of 2021 with joy.
Heaven is full of noises.
Fight everything that wants to make you depressed, sitting down in despondency, etc.
Inside your joy is everything you are believing God for.
When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them.Psalm 126:1-2 (KJV)
It was the filling of the mouth with laughter that caused their captivity to be turned around!
