Happy is the people that know well the shout of praise, that lives, Lord, in the smile of thy protection! (Psalm 89:15 Knox)
“The Holy Ghost is not just interested in the miracle; He’s interested in you receiving strength!” – Mark Hankins
When the Word hits your spirit, there can be conception; then you can give birth to your miracle. In Genesis 18, when the Lord told Abraham and Sarah that she would have a son, she first laughed in unbelief. At some point, however, she must have started laughing in faith. She must have said, “I’m not the performer; I’m just the believer.” Sarah and Abraham then named their miracle, “Ha, ha.”
They named him “Isaac,” which means “laughter.”
The people that know the joyful sound are the ones who get into the presence of God and walk in the light of His countenance. This joy is not dependent on how much money you have in the bank or who likes you; it is supernatural. It comes from heaven. It comes from God. God has this joy in Him and as believers; the same joy is in us!
Confession: I laugh in faith because I realize that I’m not the performer, I’m just the believer. The joy of the Lord is my strength. (Nehemiah 8:10)
