Coffee Time with Jesus

  • The Holy Spirit: The Oil of Gladness
    You love righteousness and hate wickedness;
    therefore God, Your God,
    has anointed You with the oil of gladness
    more than Your companions.
    Psalm 45:7
    The Holy Spirit is the Oil of Gladness. When He is rubbed into your wounds, He will take away pain and hurt. Just as oil cleanses a wound and washes away impurities, so the Holy Spirit comes to deal with your sin and wash away all remembrances of your iniquities. Do you remember how good it feels when an ache quits hurting? When the Holy Spirit comes to wash away your transgressions, you’ll feel good. The Holy Spirit is the Oil of Gladness to make you rejoice.
    Holy Spirit, I need some laughter in my life. Thank You for reminding me of how much I used to hurt. Now it feels good to feel good! Thank You for putting a smile on my face.
    The Holy Spirit is the Oil of Gladness to make Christians rejoice. When He convicts of sin, people agonize; but when He brings forgiveness, they rejoice. When people walk into dark shadows of death, they are terrified; but they are glad when they realize that the Holy Spirit is with them. When Satan has tempted people to sin, the Holy Spirit gives them victory. He is the Holy Spirit of gladness that pours the oil of happiness on your wounds.
    Holy Spirit, come pour Your oil of gladness into my wounds to heal me. Take away my hurt and sadness. Flow into my life. I have been happy in the past, and I want to feel that way again. Make today a wonderful day. Amen.

    The Holy Spirit gives happiness.
