Joel 1:12 NKJV “The vine has dried up, and the fig tree has withered; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree— all the trees of the field are withered; surely joy has withered away from the sons of men.”
Joy withered away when the vine dried up, when the fig tree withered, the pomegranate tree, the palm tree, and the apple tree also. I know we like to be spiritual at times, but you see, there are physical things that if a man has, they make him joyful.
Psalms 104:14-15 says that, “He (God) causes the grass to grow for the cattle, and vegetation for the service of man, that he may bring forth food from the earth, and wine that makes glad the heart of man, oil to make his face shine, and bread which strengthens man’s heart.”
You see, food and drink, which symbolize the good and necessary things of life make a man joyful and glad! Ecclesiastes 10:19 says, “A feast is made for laughter, and wine makes merry; but money answers everything.” Meaning that without money, the probability of the average person being unhappy is very high.
I’ve come across a lot of sad and unhappy people; lack of money robs men of their joy. Of course having money alone doesn’t keep a man joyful, but when you have Christ and are blessed by Him, nothing will steal your joy, because the blessing of God makes rich without sorrow; in other words, the blessing of God makes rich and joyful! Hallelujah! I pray for you today in the name of Jesus, that you will never lack money again!
The Bible says that God is able to make all grace abound toward you so that you will have all things in abundance: so shall it be from today in the name of Jesus! I declare that your days of sadness are over! I command the windows of heaven to be open over you today! You are blessed indeed, in Jesus name!
