God's Last Laugh
By Margaret D. Mitchell
Week of March 26, 2023
God rejoices over us and over the power of His final Word in our lives. He invites us into this happy place with Him to celebrate triumph.
Recently, I awakened in the morning to hear God's laughter, and I began to laugh with Him. His laughter is a contagious release that has the power to lift us above our tired perspectives. It brings new life and fresh vision.
It brings His strength of joy in a unique way.
Holy Spirit highlighted a corresponding scripture, then confirmed it by two witnesses later the same day. The scripture was Mark 10:27 TPT, which says, "Jesus looked at them and replied, 'With people it is impossible, but not with God—God makes all things possible!'"
So, with rejoice as an awakening, as it was in my case that morning, God alerts us to His powerful truth of timing for events. He knows He has been leading us up to a single day, in which He will catapult His faithful ones from former and present ties into their futures. He excitedly reminds us of a sudden release of freedom for major fulfillment of promises.
With rejoice as a powerful weapon, God invites us to rejoice with Him for the victory He brings, has brought and will bring. When we know His secrets that defeat the enemy, it's easier to laugh with God. And the more we walk out His secrets with Him, the more fortified in Him we become. And the more outward expressions of victory we'll experience.
With rejoice as a celebration, God is reminding us that, when others around us fail us, His plan has not failed. In fact, it will multiply on our behalves as dead weight falls away. The lies of loss do not bear witness in God's Kingdom. Disappointments are only seeds planted for a greater return when we continue to believe in Him.
So, we can celebrate now what God has done for us, is doing for us, and will do for us, as His rejoice shines a whole new light on our lives and invites us up and onward.
We can remember that, when God releases His rejoice back to us like this, it’s a marker between past and future. It's an alert that He’s rewarding us for our endurance and is positioning us even more acutely to enter into the imminent manifestation of His personal promises to us.
Some have already experienced God’s winds of change and have even connected with people pertinent to God’s plan for them. But, even so, it’s just the beginning of a new life with more to come. And for those still waiting, it will happen as you continue to follow The Lord.
This new-life experience will be a place where we will see and do life differently than before, because we’ve learned to process life more God’s way (Romans 6:4 AMP). When more of the foolish things around us fall away, it’s a revealing that we have entered into greater wholeness, the outward expressions of which are just before us.
It’s time to live out this transformed, recreated life described in Ephesians 4:23-24 TPT, which say, "Now it’s time to be made new by every revelation that’s been given to you. And to be transformed as you embrace the glorious Christ-within as your new life and live in union with him! For God has re-created you all over again in his perfect righteousness, and you now belong to him in the realm of true holiness."
So, be ready for the big shifts coming. You will not be left behind as long as you continue to believe and obey God’s instructions. Release any falsehood and keep a Caleb heart of wholeness toward God and His endeavors (Ephesians 4:25).
Since God is our first husband (Isaiah 54:5), nothing can break our covenant bond with Him. When we submit to Him as our Heavenly Husband, we soar with Him. Anyone or anything that tries to come against is influenced by the enemy and is already defeated.
We can pray they repent and receive divine revelation before they experience the consequences of their behavior. So, just keep going with God, guiltless and without condemnation, and He’ll lead you right into His personal promises to you.
In this we can rejoice.
So, pray with me if you will . . .
Thank You that, as my Bridegroom, you rejoice over me (Isaiah 62:5 AMP). Thank You that Your Word is final over my life, bringing forth the fulfillment of Your promises. Thank you for loving me so much that You invite me to rejoice with You every step of the way. Help me, Lord, to laugh with You even more.
In Jesus’ Mighty Name,
