"Whereas you have been forsaken and hated, so that no one passed through you, I will make you an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations."
The experience of a new beginning opens up a new chapter of God's blessings, which culminates in joy. The Bible says when the Lord turned the captivity of Zion, they were like dreamers. They thought there were under a false sense deliverance from captivity. But it dawned on them that it was a new dawn. So they were exceedingly glad, crediting their deliverance to God. However, beyond experiencing this kind of of joy, God wants to make you a joy of many generations. People who answer to the description of joy of many generations are often FOUNTAIN OF BLESSINGS. That means God can and is willing to bless you so much as to give you the capability to dispense His blessings to generations. Hence, don't think less of yourself and of the power of God to make you an overflowing stream of blessings. By virtue of God's blessings in your life, you can put smiles on the faces of the depressed and destitute.
Aside from being a FOUNTAIN OF BLESSING, people who are designated as joy of many generations are like MOUNTAINS that cannot be removed. In other words, they are generational reference point of steadfastness in their relationship with God. Their resolve to stick to God in the face of persecution earns them the admiration of others. Because Apostle Paul put his trust in the Lord, he was like mount Zion, which is unmovable. While in prison for the testimony of Jesus, he wrote to the Church in Philippi, "Rejoice, again I say rejoice." On account of his undivided and undiluted loyalty to God, many believers have found reasons to keep on rejoicing in their new found faith, even in the face of persecutions. Are you inspiring joy in the hearts of those who are downcast or are you allowing your challenges to hang over you, so much that everyone depressed around you can't find reason to rejoice? Having been established on Christ, the solid Rock, you can remain unshakable even if the devil is rocking your boat.
In the light of operating in dominion, Christians who are tagged as joy of many generations are indomitable CAPTAINS in the Lord's Army. The Lord God throws His weight behind them to give them endless victories. So when they proceed against the forces of darkness, they despoil them and win victoriously. Their name and fame go down as proofs of victorious living. David is a case in point of a general who won battles for the Israelites. When he proceeded against Goliath, he reduced the giant to defeat. His testimony of victory inspires every believer with confidence in God, whilst evidencing that the seemingly small can overpower the mighty. This alone is a reason to express joy and keep hope alive in the face of battles and oppositions. Henceforth, throw off that garment of sorrow and despair because God has made a commitment to you when He said, "I will make you an eternal excellence, the joy of many generations." If you are on the Lord's side, this promise is already taking shape in your life. As you remain steadfast in your walk with God, He will walk you up to this high point of fulfilment in Jesus name.
