Scripture Reading Psalm 126:1-3 (New International Version)
Psalm 126 A song of ascents. 1 When the LORD brought back the captives to [a] Zion, we were like men who dreamed.
2 Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them."
3 The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
In a moment of worshipping God, thinking about how GOOD He is, not because I wanted anything from him, but simply because of who He is. Reflecting on His awesomeness and meditating on all that is wrapped up in Him - I began to loose my self in His glory.
While in His presence, I began to hear alot of laughing going on. I stopped and listened because I thought someone had come into my office with me and were laughing. It got louder and louder and I heard the voice of the Lord say that the angels are in the heavenlies laughing at Satan.
God want you to be encouraged today - He want you to know that the situation that you've been dealing with, that almost consumed you, that almost took your mind, that ALMOST made you give up - is OVER. Satan thought he had won the battle, he thought he could hold you bound. He thought you would never laugh again, he thought you would never have any joy again, and he thought you would give in and join sides with him. What he didn't know was that God had dispatched the warring angels and they were fighting behind the scene on your behalf. Neither did he know that his hand in the situation had already been broken. He didn't know that God was going to help you to slip out of his grip. No longer can Satan hold you bound to that situation anymore. Victory is ALREADY yours.
God is saying according to Psalm 126, that now that your situation has changed, it's going to seem just like you're dreaming. He not only has changed the situation and brought you out of Egypt(bondage) but he's gonna cause you to laugh again. With your laughter is gonna also come joy. God says to you today in Vs. # 3, that you will know without a doubt that the Lord has done great things for you.
God says to you today, when he set you free - don't keep it to yourself, but shat it with someone else that they too can know this AWESOME mighty and MAGNIFICENT God that we serve. God wanted you to be reminded today of this Scripture in Jeremiah 1:19 that They(many battles, struggles, and situations) will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you," declares the LORD.
In His Righteousness,
