03:14 God's Word it's not only possible but it
03:17 is the desire of God's heart for you and
03:21 for me and Psalm 100 God beckons you to
03:25 enter into the superior reality of his
03:29 kingdom his presence when the unseen
03:33 realm of his where the unseen realm of
03:36 his supreme dominion exists and where

03:46 Son Jesus Christ into this world to die
03:48 for your sins and to give you his
03:50 righteousness his own right standing
03:53 with God you are able to come boldly
03:56 into God's presence by one and only one
04:00 way and that's through the blood of
04:03 Jesus Christ this is the new and living
04:06 way that God has provided for you and I
04:09 to enter into God's presence Hebrews
04:11 10:19 through 23 says this therefore
04:15 brethren having boldness to enter the
04:18 holiest by the blood of Jesus by a new
04:21 and living way which he consecrated for
04:23 us through the veil that is his flesh
04:27 and having a high priest over the house
04:30 of God let us draw near with a true
04:33 heart in full assurance of faith let us
04:38 hold fast the confession of our faith
04:41 without wavering for he who promised is
04:44 that faithful meditating on this truth
04:49 and this truth alone about being able to
04:53 enter into God's presence into the
04:57 holiest of Holies where God dwells is
05:02 enough for us to begin to shout and sing
05:06 gladly zubur utley to our Lord and our
05:12 Savior Jesus has made a way for us to
05:16 enter in to God's kingdom where we have
05:20 been adopted into gods family and have
05:23 become a child of the Most High God
05:27 Roman numeral to repent and see Jesus in
05:32 order to be able to inner Foley and
05:35 wholeheartedly into God's presence his
05:38 kingdom in every aspect of your life not
05:41 just some areas you must choose to
05:44 repent when Jesus came into this world
05:47 he brought the reality of heaven with
05:50 him and he said repent for the kingdom
05:54 of God is at hand God's kingdom was
05:59 clearly revealed in Jesus's life during
06:03 his ministry signs wonders healings that
06:06 a miracles abounded any one that came to
06:10 him needing forgiveness was fully
06:13 forgiven lives were radically redeemed
06:17 and transformed and even the dead were
06:20 raised to life as a result people began
06:24 to think and to feel differently joy
06:29 when Jesus walked on this earth in his
06:33 presence joy flowed like a river
06:39 overtaking people sorrow overtaking
06:42 people sign overtaking the disgruntled
06:47 Ness that they felt the moment you
06:52 receive Jesus Christ into your heart
06:54 your spirit man was made into the image
06:58 and likeness of God himself your
07:01 repentance from sin and your faith in
07:05 God brought a radical transformation of
07:09 your spirit man we've covered this many
07:11 times in Psalm 1 and our Psalm 103
07:14 sessions you became justified just as if
07:18 you had never sinned sanctification
07:21 though that's bringing your own soul and
07:25 body into the Dominion and the the
07:28 Dominion of the Lord and under his
07:31 leadership occurs through ongoing
07:34 repentance this process of
07:38 sanctification will actually occur
07:40 throughout your life as you choose to
07:45 repent and to come an agreement with our
07:49 Lord and Savior repentance goes far
07:53 beyond just feeling sorrow and regret
07:57 for your sin for what you have or you
08:01 have not done or said it involves a
08:04 quality decision where you actually
08:07 change your thoughts which result in
08:12 changed emotions so that what you are
08:16 thinking and what you are feeling is
08:19 coming in alignment with Jesus's
08:22 thoughts and his emotions as revealed by
08:26 the Word of God Jesus said repent for
08:30 the kingdom of heaven is at hand
08:34 that were repent in Greek comes from
08:37 Metin own a meta know iya and it
08:40 actually means to change one's mind
08:44 repentance calls you to cross over from
08:49 your way of thinking into God's way of
08:54 thinking it called repentance calls you
08:57 to go from ungodly thoughts and ungodly
09:02 emotions into God's way of thinking in
09:07 God's Way of feelings as believers in
09:12 Christ repentance calls you to cross
09:16 over from the law into grace and that is
09:23 Grace is His Son Jesus Christ John 1:17
09:29 says for the law was given through Moses
09:32 but grace and truth came through Jesus
09:35 Christ now this is a very important
09:38 point for our lives when Jesus came on
09:43 the earth the Pharisees Sadducees and
09:46 religious leaders they failed to repent
09:53 they fail to change their way of
09:56 thinking jesus said repent the kingdom
09:59 of God is at hand that when it's said
10:03 talks about the kingdom of God it's
10:05 talking about the presence of God the
10:08 presence of God was revealed in jesus's
10:12 life but those who were caught up in
10:15 religious thinking could not see Jesus
10:20 they could not see the kingdom of God
10:23 because they didn't have a heart of
10:27 repentance so we want to think about
10:30 that for our own lives we have to have a
10:33 heart of repentance always willing to
10:36 come up to God's high ways his standard
10:42 the Bible some people say there's no
10:45 miracles for today but God's Word
10:49 clearly shows us that healings and
10:52 miracles are for us today what do we
10:55 need to do we need to repent we don't
10:58 need a stand stay in the north
11:01 way what people think is normal we need
11:04 to cross over come up into God's Way of
11:09 thinking when you change your limited
11:12 perspective your own reasoning and
11:15 natural sense senses into God's
11:18 perspective it's revealed by His Word
11:20 and by a spirit you'll be able to
11:23 encounter Jesus you'll be able to
11:26 encounter God's presence you'll be able
11:28 to encounter God's kingdom
11:30 in new and refreshing ways you'll be
11:33 able to abide actually abide in your
11:38 home in Jesus Christ in the heavenly
11:42 places and you'll be able to live your
11:44 life truly from heaven to earth now I'm
11:49 gonna tell you a testimony that I heard
11:50 quite some time ago by a man named Kevin
11:54 Dedmon I wanted clarity on his testimony
11:57 so I was like weird you know can I find
12:00 that clarity and I actually heard it
12:04 when I was up in Bethel California I
12:07 mean bill Johnson's church and I thought
12:10 whoa this is like way out there and I'm
12:14 presenting it to you because it talks
12:16 about a man that actually lived in the
12:21 reality of heaven the atmosphere of joy
12:24 and therefore because he saw the reality
12:29 of a joyous King he was able to bring a
12:33 miracle into someone's life through joy
12:38 being released so you can find this I
12:42 actually was able to find it in his book
12:44 unlocking heaven and that's in Chapter
12:47 five by Kevin Dedmon okay so at a
12:50 healing conference there was this lady
12:52 who was 40 years old sitting way back in
12:55 the church and he saw her come in and
12:57 having a lot of trouble coming in on a
12:59 walker he actually thought that she was
13:02 in her fifties someone after the service
13:06 says can you go back there and pray for
13:08 her he said if she wants healing she
13:11 needs to come forward
13:15 she finally made her way forward with
13:18 her husband propping her and helping her
13:21 to stand she could barely stand he kept
13:23 on having to help her stand up and then
13:27 he asked the question what do you have
13:30 need of she says I need a new kidney but
13:37 it's not possible he says what my
13:43 relatives who go to such-and-such Church
13:47 told me because I put my name on the
13:50 kidney transplant list that I have been
13:54 now disqualified for God hearing and
13:58 answering my prayers her relatives
14:02 actually told her that God would not
14:05 hear her prayers because she chose to
14:09 believe in man rather than God my
14:14 question to you tonight is if you were
14:17 faced with this situation what would you
14:23 think would your mind say the same thing
14:28 as her relatives or would you know God
14:32 the way Jesus knew God the way Kevin
14:36 Dedmon knew God and how he thought about
14:41 this lady and her circumstances think
14:44 about your own life where you have owned
14:46 have disqualified yourself from
14:49 receiving a healing or a miracle or a
14:52 need being met by God and you've
14:54 disqualified yourself because you have
14:59 failed to repent and to see God as God
15:03 the God who loves you the God who cares
15:07 for you the God who is your heavenly
15:10 Father and who would do anything for you
15:14 so this is what Kevin said when he heard
15:19 this lady say I can't receive a miracle
15:23 you know and there she is Stan
15:26 in front of him barely able to stand he
15:30 says no way your safe is standing right
15:34 here right now that's how I feel about
15:39 people coming into our Healing Rooms
15:42 their faith brought him into the healing
15:46 room their faith is standing in front of
15:48 you in fact I see the father smiling
15:53 over you right now he is so pleased with
15:59 you no more than that he's dancing
16:04 around you as he's smiling even more
16:09 than that he's smiling he's dancing I'm
16:12 seeing him laughing over you he is so
16:16 happy with you and he began to laugh and
16:22 laugh and laugh at what he had
16:25 envisioned I like this word envisioned
16:31 because it didn't say that he had a
16:34 vision now if he was caught up in a
16:37 heavenly vision it would be easy to
16:40 cooperate with heaven but what I
16:42 understood from his story as he
16:47 envisioned the Jesus he had always
16:51 envisioned in his own personal quiet
16:54 time a god that was happy with him that
16:59 sang songs and danced over him a God
17:02 that laughed with him a god that was
17:05 joyful as Kevin began to laugh he put
17:11 his hand on her head and she began to
17:15 laugh they both laughed hysterically for
17:19 about three minutes who's to say if they
17:22 began in the flesh ha ha ha ha and then
17:26 they began ended up in the spirit
17:29 poverty 1722 says this a joyful heart is
17:34 good medicine how good is the matter
17:40 of the lore the joy of the Lord the joy
17:45 of the Lord was God's prescription for
17:50 this lady whose kidneys
17:53 had been shutting down and who had been
17:55 bedridden for about three months and
17:59 having her family wait on her because
18:01 she couldn't wait on herself and that's
18:03 why she put her name on the transplant
18:05 list because she couldn't live like that
18:08 any longer out of her desperation she
18:12 was doing all she knew to do to be made
18:16 well instead of this lady going ahead
18:24 and going like this guy's crazy he
18:31 didn't hear my story he's laughing no
18:39 she joined in the laughter Psalm two
18:43 four seven says that God sits in heaven
18:47 and he laughs at the plans of the enemy
18:53 as Kevin and this lady laughed she began
18:57 to say I'm on fire she held her kidneys
19:03 and she told her husband so he began to
19:10 fan her off as she cried how and then
19:14 she placed to her feet husband start
19:21 spamming off her feet and before you
19:25 know it this lady that could barely
19:27 stand started doing I believe it was
19:30 like a karate kick or something like
19:32 that and started running around the
19:34 sanctuary saying the next week she goes
19:46 to the kidney transplant center
19:49 and they go we don't know what happened
19:52 you have a brand new kidney is that
20:02 something to shout about to sing about
20:05 to dance about
20:09 that's what Psalm 100 is talking about
20:13 encountering the Lord and out of
20:17 encountering him you begin to sing and
20:21 dance and shout but sometimes you don't
20:28 see the earthly circumstances changing
20:34 and God calls you to sing and shout and
20:37 dance for joy and then in his presence
20:41 he goes ahead and defeats your enemy for
20:47 you he is a god have my father and I'm
20:53 really excited this next season that
20:55 we're going into it for the Camarillo
20:57 Healing Rooms Wes and Lynn are raising
21:01 up a worship and intercessory team teens
21:05 on Tuesday but I know it's going to be
21:07 developing into a god house for us
21:11 because it's in this atmosphere of
21:14 worship in this Psalm 100 eggs uber n't
21:20 scene that God loves to come and dwell
21:27 with his presence
21:33 Roman numeral three seven keys to joy
21:37 filled living Psalm 100 is God's seven
21:43 step action plan for joy filled living
21:45 it's his prescription for our life this
21:50 action plan will help you to live the
21:52 life that God has intended for you to
21:55 live a life full of joy the Psalm 100
22:01 actions or for you if you desire to
22:05 enter into God's presence and then to
22:09 abide there inside of Jesus Christ to
22:13 dwell there and to make it your home we
22:17 mentioned Psalm 16:11 at the at the
22:20 beginning in your presence is the
22:26 fullness of joy and at your right hand
22:28 are pleasures forevermore in God's
22:34 presence is fullness of joy at God's
22:47 right hand
22:49 who's that God's right hand Jesus Christ
22:51 and you are in Jesus are equal pleasures
22:56 forevermore people are seeking pleasures
23:00 and happiness all over the place and
23:04 they're not finding that and you have
23:08 been called by God to release his
23:14 kingdom like Jesus did when he was on
23:17 this earth so that other people just
23:21 like this lady can truly experience who
23:24 God is but for them to experience who
23:29 God is you need to know who God is so
23:37 when a situation happens like it did for
23:40 Kevin Dedmon you can laugh
23:43 at the lies of the enemy and release
23:47 God's presence King David he had a
23:51 passion for God's presence his kingdom
23:55 his passion began when he was a small
23:59 boy out with the Sheep worshiping God
24:03 and his passion never changed it became
24:07 King and finally died his passion was
24:13 shown instead of doing what Saul did
24:17 when he was King his passion was shown
24:21 by desiring the Ark of the Covenant
24:25 where God's presence dwelt to be brought
24:29 into Jerusalem where he lived and then
24:34 he knew the desires of God's heart to
24:39 receive worship so he arranged for the
24:43 priests to actually start worshiping the
24:48 Lord it says that he in his lifetime was
24:51 like six thousand trained musicians and
24:55 singers trained to worship the Lord and
25:01 during King David's reign many mighty
25:05 things happen enemies could not defeat
25:10 them because the presence of the Lord
25:14 was dwelling in their mist Psalm 100
25:22 Sheldon serving the Lord with gladness
25:26 coming before his presence was singing
25:30 it was normal for the people to
25:34 participate in this in Jerusalem normal
25:41 normal I want that to be my norm I want
25:45 that to be your norm I want it to be our
25:47 norm the new norm for camarillo Healing
25:51 Rooms
25:53 let us stand up and declare Psalm 100
25:57 out loud you can see the action words
25:59 there that are shaded you can see the
26:02 underlined words there that talk about
26:04 you accompanying your actions with joy
26:07 and then you can see on that graph the
26:11 last column who are directing at all to
26:14 the king of all Kings Jesus our Lord God
26:19 our Heavenly Father so let us begin make
26:23 a joyful shout to the Lord all you lands
26:25 serve the Lord with gladness come before
26:29 his presence with joyful scene know that
26:34 the Lord he is God it is he who made us
26:37 and not we ourselves we are his people
26:41 and the Sheep of his pasture enter into
26:44 his gates with Thanksgiving and into his
26:47 courts with praise be thankful to him
26:51 and bless His name for the Lord is good
26:55 his mercy is everlasting his truth to
27:00 all generations you can be seated Roman
27:06 numeral for Jesus he delights in knowing
27:12 God
27:13 that's your foundational key first from
27:17 for Psalm 100 is for you to know God and
27:20 out of your knowing comes joy and comes
27:25 joy filled actions because you know your
27:32 heavenly father
27:33 you know Jesus and what he has done for
27:38 you to know we talked about last week
27:41 hebrews yaaaaah it's like a husband
27:44 knows a wife God knew Jesus intimately
27:54 and Jesus knew God Jesus said in Matthew
28:01 11 26 all things
28:06 I've been committed to me by my father
28:09 no one knows the son except the father
28:15 and no one knows the Father except the
28:19 Son and to those who whom the son
28:23 chooses to reveal him all things that
28:28 existed in heaven and on earth were
28:30 entrusted to Jesus because of the
28:34 relationship of the father with his son
28:38 Jesus Christ God trusted his son with
28:43 everything that belong to him all the
28:49 heavenly resources including all the
28:53 angels and heavenly hosts was at Jesus's
28:56 disposal to meet every need that Jesus
29:00 encountered as a result we see the
29:05 healings the miracles the ones that are
29:09 recorded and in thousands and hundreds
29:12 of thousands probably that were not
29:14 recorded
29:16 Jesus beliefs the good news of great joy
29:19 wherever he went
29:22 in John 17 7 in Jesus's prayer to his
29:27 Heavenly Father before he goes to the
29:30 cross he says this now they have known
29:34 all that all things which you have given
29:38 me are from you do you notice that he
29:43 says you know the source I made them all
29:47 know the source of everything I've done
29:49 it's your father see Jesus came for one
29:54 real primary purpose he came to save you
29:58 but he came to save you so that you
30:00 could get back into one with the Father
30:05 into a heavenly relationship in a
30:08 father-daughter father-son relationship
30:14 when you looked at all look at all the
30:16 supernatural things Jesus the compass
30:19 in his life you're gonna appreciate when
30:22 he said in John 5:30 I can of myself do
30:29 nothing I do not seek my own will but
30:34 the will of the Father who sent me as I
30:39 say these words that Jesus spoke I want
30:42 you to think about your own life I can
30:48 do nothing you and I can do nothing of
30:51 value that we'll ever have eternal value
30:55 without our Father and the Holy Spirit
31:01 and Jesus intervention in our life our
31:06 desires needs to be in everything to do
31:09 his will number D Jesus delighted and
31:16 knowing that his father was with him
31:19 notice that in the next verses that I
31:21 read and that without his father that he
31:25 could do nothing Jesus delighted in
31:30 being totally dependent on his father
31:36 Jesus delighted himself in knowing God
31:40 knowing what his father was saying and
31:43 knowing what his father was doing and
31:46 then saying it and doing it you can read
31:51 that in John 5:19 most assuredly I say
31:55 to you the son can do nothing of himself
31:58 but what he sees the father doing for
32:02 whatever he does the son also does in
32:06 like manner
32:07 John 8:28 through 29 I can do nothing of
32:12 myself but as my father taught me I
32:16 speak these things and I love this and
32:20 he who sent me is with me right now
32:25 your father and Jesus and the Holy
32:33 Spirit is with ya
32:36 we should never forget that once again
32:39 that's something to shout about the
32:42 knowing took on such depth that the
32:45 father and the son were one one in
32:49 thought one an attitude one in word and
32:52 deed they knew each other
32:55 there was one nasaw
32:58 1030 says I and my father are one John
33:03 17:21 Jesus prayed this for you that
33:08 they all may be one as you Father are in
33:10 me and I in you that they also may be
33:13 one in us that the world may believe
33:16 that you sent me Jesus died on the cross
33:20 as your substitute and was raised and
33:23 seated at the right hand of God so you
33:26 could be saved and the purpose of your
33:32 salvation is to have ever lasting life
33:37 Jesus defines everlasting life in John
33:42 17:3 and he says this this is eternal
33:47 life that they may know you the only
33:51 true God and Jesus Christ whom you have
33:56 sent the salvation your purpose of
34:00 salvation is so that you would know God
34:05 and become one with God if you received
34:11 salvation the forgiveness of all your
34:13 sins and even other aspects of your
34:16 salvation but don't value your
34:21 relationship with God do you don't value
34:24 knowing God then you're missing out on
34:27 the real purpose of your salvation too
34:31 many people are struggling in life
34:33 living a life without genuine joy
34:36 because they are not developing
34:38 a relationship with God they aren't
34:42 getting to know God and you can read
34:45 that in the next scripture I included
34:48 their second Peter one two three four
34:52 Roman numeral five knowing God Psalm 100
34:57 ways God calls you in Psalm 100 to know
35:01 God to know truths about who God is and
35:03 what is character or nature is life this
35:07 involves not just knowing truths with
35:09 our mind but knowing them deep down in
35:13 our heart so that we could become one
35:16 with the truth one with the Word of God
35:20 one with our Father this means we're one
35:24 in our attitude one in our thoughts one
35:28 in our emotions everything about us
35:32 being United with God in order for you
35:38 to truly need God no God you need the
35:42 assistance of the Holy Spirit and we are
35:44 given a beautiful prayer in Ephesians
35:46 1:17 through 21 about receiving wisdom
35:53 and revelation and the knowledge of God
35:56 it takes God to know God so we actually
36:00 have to pray for God to open up our
36:04 hearts of understanding so we can know
36:08 him as he truly is so we can get rid of
36:11 a lot of that religious thinking like
36:14 the Pharisees and Sadducees had so that
36:17 when Jesus was showing up in the
36:19 situation and right in front of him and
36:21 his presence was being known they didn't
36:24 recognize him we need to understand
36:30 God's ways in Psalm 100 Psalm 100
36:36 invites us to know God and to know his
36:39 ways Exodus 33 13 says this Moses was
36:44 praying now therefore I pray if I found
36:47 grace in your shopsite show me now your
36:51 way
36:52 that I might know you and that I might
36:57 find grace in your sight psalm 103 verse
37:01 7 the psalm we had just finished it
37:05 talks about the same thing in a
37:06 different way it says that he made his
37:11 ways known to Moses and his acts to the
37:15 children of Israel the ways that we are
37:22 called to know God in Psalm 100 is
37:25 through seven actions that are filled
37:28 with joy when we follow God's ways we
37:34 end up knowing him growing closer to him
37:37 it's like my husband and I we've been
37:40 married you know 37 years and I'm still
37:44 there's things I getting to know about
37:46 him and now we were talking about an
37:49 infinite God and we were actually going
37:51 to get to know God more and more just
37:54 not here on this earth that we're going
37:56 to spend all eternity understanding
37:58 different facets of him when you start
38:00 opening your Bible and you're reading
38:01 and you go oh wow I've never seen God
38:04 that way I've never seen Jesus that way
38:06 you know oh I wish I would have known
38:08 this before you know that's gonna be
38:12 throughout her life knowing God in His
38:15 ways Moses because he knew the ways of
38:19 God he actually had these face-to-face
38:22 encounters with God the Israelites
38:27 afraid of God they had a met arm's
38:33 length and so they didn't have that same
38:37 closeness in their relationship they
38:41 knew more about God than truly knowing
38:45 God Jesus knew God has father and we are
38:51 called to know our Father God and His
38:54 Son Jesus
38:57 in this ministry of healing that you are
39:01 involved with knowing God what he's
39:05 saying in doing is crucial and it's
39:10 crucial to understand that because we
39:14 need to know his ways I mean would you
39:18 have thought about laughing when someone
39:24 tells you that they need a kidney
39:26 transplant and they can't receive one
39:29 the same man Kevin Dedmon he was in
39:32 another meeting and I don't remember all
39:36 the details but it he actually the
39:39 person had a part of a finger that was
39:41 missing and he just grabbed the guy's
39:44 hand and started laughed and started
39:47 ministering to some other people and lo
39:51 and behold the finger grill through the
39:54 joy of the Lord you know now you think
40:00 well that's way out there well how about
40:01 during jesus's lifetime where the lady
40:04 grabs the hem of His garment and gets
40:07 healing and then we have after that a
40:13 bunch of other people doing the same
40:15 thing and you know what they receive
40:17 healing the same way by grabbing his
40:19 garment it's in the Bible so anyway know
40:25 God's ways maybe he's calling you to
40:28 release laughter because we're the joy
40:32 of the Lord is the enemy hates to stand
40:35 you can't stand in God's presence the
40:38 joy the Lord brings God's presence Roman
40:42 numeral six knowing God means you need
40:47 to know the word and the more you get to
40:50 know the word you get to know God and
40:52 the more joy enters in your life that's
40:55 my story I don't know about you guys I
40:59 went to in Los Angeles this church and I
41:04 was desperately needing healing during
41:06 that time was when it's really really
41:08 sick and they had this prophet
41:10 see you know that was going to go
41:11 between the brakes and stuff and I get
41:14 this prophecy I should have dug it out
41:16 for you guys it just came to my mind but
41:18 it was like you're gonna know the word
41:21 of the Lord and you're just gonna become
41:22 so so happy you're just gonna be filled
41:24 with joy and I'm thinking like you know
41:29 what I mean but that's what's happened
41:32 and I'm gonna tell you if you get to
41:36 know the word of the Lord you will
41:39 become happy
41:41 you will experience pleasures
41:44 forevermore you will experience the
41:48 fullness of his joy it's a joy that the
41:52 world cannot give to you the world's joy
41:57 now has been skewed and it's temporal
42:00 now you can have Joy's in the world yeah
42:04 beautiful sunsets and different things
42:06 that the Lord has given us but they're
42:08 all to plate to the one who is the
42:12 source just like Jesus pointed to the
42:14 source hey all these things they came
42:17 for my father who loves you anyway
42:22 George Mueller Roe numeral six George
42:26 Amelia was a Christian evangelist and
42:28 oversaw an orphanage in England in the
42:31 early 1800s
42:34 he actually had about 30 children in his
42:37 own home orphans and then it like became
42:41 so many he purchased other homes and
42:44 then it was like you know in these five
42:46 homes like an army are 1700 children you
42:49 know and over his lifetime he and his
42:52 wife ministered to about 10,000 orphans
42:56 and then after his first wife dies and
42:59 he's in his 70s he goes he banja lysing
43:02 the world in the 1800s for 17 years talk
43:08 about receiving a renewed strength
43:13 [Laughter]
43:16 anyway I love what he said and I wanted
43:19 to thin your hand out also because I
43:21 want you to go ahead and really chew on
43:24 what he said I saw more clearly than
43:27 ever before that the first and great
43:29 primary business to which I ought to
43:33 attend every day was to have my soul
43:37 happy in the Lord the first thing to be
43:41 concerned about was not how much I might
43:43 serve the Lord but how I might or how I
43:48 might glorify him but how I might get my
43:52 soul into a happy state and how my inner
43:57 man may be nourished I saw that the most
44:01 important thing I had to do was to give
44:04 myself to the reading of the Word of God
44:07 and to the meditation on it now Psalm 1
44:12 was our first song that we studied in
44:15 this series called courageous living and
44:18 in Psalm 1 it says but his delight is in
44:21 the law of the Lord and in his law he
44:24 meditates day and night and I love the
44:29 song that west grouse be actually sang
44:32 and when I play it it's like so it's oh
44:36 so happy happy happy
44:38 well happy happy happy is the
44:41 translation for blessed so as my husband
44:45 and I were reading on Sunday the poems
44:48 about Psalm 142 Psalm 150 together there
44:52 was all this happiness I go that has to
44:54 be that word blessed and it was I looked
44:57 it up same word happy happy happy
45:01 God's happy he's the blessed man and in
45:05 him we got to be happy and then I like
45:08 what's his song goes on in his is he
45:11 finds joy to it you could sing it better
45:13 than a joy as he studies all the
45:15 promises that he finds in God's Word and
45:18 you will find joy as she study God's
45:21 promises in his word and then Psalm 103
45:26 the second Psalm we studied talked about
45:29 knowing God who he is God who forgives
45:34 all your sin
45:37 the God who heals all your diseases the
45:42 God who redeems your life from
45:43 destruction the God is satisfies and
45:48 crowns your life with loving-kindness
45:50 and compassion the one who feels your
45:53 mouth with good things so that your
45:56 youth is renewed like an eagle when you
46:01 know who God is you will experience the
46:07 fullness of joy and pleasures
46:10 forevermore amen
46:12 thank you for coming tonight have a
46:15 great great evening
46:17 father I thank you and I praise you for
46:20 your goodness for your joy for the
46:25 pleasures that are in you and father I
