This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it. I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread. I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy. Psalm 132:14-16
Overwhelming Joy is the will of God for you this month. I don’t know what it is you have gone through during the past months or years of your life. They are past tense as long as this month is concerned. We are in the month of overwhelming Joy in a year of completion and perfection. Hallelujah! It is obvious that God’s intentions for you are glorious. In this month, He will perfect what He has started in your life and you will have cause to shout for Joy. Don’t expect the same things that happened in the past months to continue like that. No! You will surely experience a turnaround in your life this month.
However, when you read our opening scripture, you will notice that this shout of joy is for certain people. It is not for everybody. Verse 16 says, “…her saints shall shout for joy.” Joy is the heritage of only children of God, washed by the blood of the lamb and filled with the Holy Spirit. When you are saved, you are sanctified by the blood of Jesus and made habitable for the Holy Spirit. “And the disciples were filled with joy with the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 13:52). The Holy Spirit is the conveyer of joy. His indwelling in you makes your life joy-full. The more you fellowship with Him, the more joy is expressed in your life this month.
Salvation is the starting point of your endless joy this month. Make that decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and personal savior and commit to living for Him alone. Only then will the Holy Spirit fill your life with joy and testimonies.

I heard about Praise Tabernacle on radio as I listened to daddy preach. Then I attended the next Tuesday service. I was so broke that I had to ask my elder brother for transport fare to church. During the service, daddy declared financial blessings and I received it. Immediately, I felt my phone vibrate. I checked and it was a credit alert of a huge amount of money. Praise God!
– Paul C.

2. Any power that has been mandated to make sure I remain at the same level from month to month, I sack you now by fire in Jesus name.
3. Whatever the enemy has projected into my path this month to bring sorrow and pain, I terminate it now in Jesus name.
4. Any appointment with death this month is annulled. My life will be filled with unending joy this month in Jesus name.
