JOY UNSPEAKABLE BY FRANKLIN OKENWA
Bitterness, envy, and unforgivingness can eat up the soul of a man like witchcraft and it devours like an inferno. Envy is a manifestation of unhealthy competition. Many people are sick, not because they lack provisions, but partly because they lack the joy of the Lord (Proverbs 17:22), especially when they feel others are faring better than them. Beloved, there is time for everything. So, don’t compare yourself with others. The word of God reveals that godliness with contentment is great gain (1Timothy 6:6). Each time you start becoming envious and bitter about someone, your face will begin to look older and uglier than your real self. No two finger prints are the same. God has created you for a very unique purpose and assignment.
Child of God, there is nothing that drains the anointing of God in a believer’s life, like envy, bitterness and unforgiveness. Permit me to let you know that bitterness kills faster than idolatry, it is a little leaven that leavens the whole lump. When you discover that envy and bitterness is growing up in your life, “HATE IT AND FIGHT IT .” It is one of the causes of spiritual dryness. This is one of the reasons why most people experience the frustration of unanswered prayers. People are envious partly because they have not discovered their purpose, which will produce in them a passion for living. Purpose is the discovery of a reason for existence and is defined as the original intent for the creation of a thing. By the help of Holy Spirit, and through this book, you are going to learn how to overcome all the negative vices that the devil uses to dampen your spiritual life and make you dry. Secrets of how to triumph over every feeling of guilt, inferiority complex and condemnation, that will not allow you to truly fellowship with God, are shared in this book. It is only when you are joyful that you will consistently access the presence of the Lord. That is only when the rivers of the living water in you will tremendously begin to spring forth, producing unending fruits of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.
