    This is what we have heard:

    “You meet him who rejoices and does righteousness,
    Who remembers You in Your ways.
    You are indeed angry, for we have sinned— In these ways we continue;
    And we need to be saved.”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭64:5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    Beloved one, who rejoices and does righteousness, who remembers Christ in His ways — have irresistible joy !

    We know irresistible joy can be ours !
    For we also heard the same joy spoken:

    “Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
    Let such as love Your salvation say continually, “The Lord be magnified!”

    But I am poor and needy;
    Yet the Lord thinks upon me.
    You are my help and my deliverer; Do not delay, O my God.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭40:16-17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    Beloved one, we can have irresistible joy when we seek the Lord!

    Beloved one, are we amazed what David have said ?
    Despite that we are poor and needy.
    Yet our Lord thinks upon us.
    Jesus Christ our Lord is our help and deliverer. And that He never delays.

    So let us seek the Lord, and have that irresistible joy in union with Him.

    Beloved one, despite David’s consideration that he was poor and needy, David never painted a false image of God. David painted in faith, that God always thinks upon him, that the Lord is his help and deliverer. David believes that his cry for the Lord not to delay — is answered.

    So beloved one, let us put away the painting of false of images of the Lord in our minds. So beloved one, let us hang on the painting of true images of the Lord in our minds according to His words.

    Beloved one, let us have irresistible joy and do righteousness and remember Christ in His ways — surely we shall meet Him.

    May the irresistible joy of the Lord be with you. Amen

    Beloved ones, the same IRRESISTIBLE JOY, is heard :

    “The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them,
    And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose;”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭35:1‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    “It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, Even with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, The excellence of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the Lord, The excellency of our God.”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭35:2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    Beloved ones, even if our circumstances around us look like the wilderness and the wasteland,
    the wilderness and the wasteland
    shall be glad for us in Christ.

    And even if our past lives
    look like the desert,
    the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose.

    Our new lives in Christ shall blossom abundantly and rejoice,
    Even with joy and singing.
    The glory of Lebanon shall be given to our new lives in Christ,
    The excellence of Carmel and Sharon.
    For we shall see the glory of the Lord,
    The excellency of our God.

    So beloved ones, consider the irresistible joy that comes from the Lord.
    Delight yourself as you seek Him.
    Be glad and rejoice as you seek Him.

    To God be thanksgiving through Christ.
    Amen.
