God’s Happy Hour: 21 Days to Restore Joy and Produce Strength!

Monday, June 24, 2024

Dear Celebrating Ones:

We are called to be a people of abundant life! (John 10:10). During yesterday’s Celebration Service, LeAnn Squier stepped out to share that God’s people needed a HAPPY HOUR every day at 5 PM!  She said, “We need to have a happy hour! We need to gather in a place of joy unspeakable and full of glory. I saw our voices begin to put things out in the atmosphere – joy, breath, the Spirit of the Lord in the atmosphere! We declare a happy hour for the Body of Christ from day to day to day!” 

I met with a group of key leaders this weekend and, on Saturday, gave a word about the next 21 days.  So, when Leann brought this forth on Sunday, I knew it was a confirmation.  As we praise and get “happy,” the Lord will begin to unseat key positions that are ruling us unjustly and start the process of resetting those who will rule in the future.

I believe this is a word for all of us!  If we choose to find and release joy into the atmosphere at the end of each day at 5 PM, we will begin our next day even happier!  Set your alarm to be happy at 5 PM each day and watch how your atmosphere will change over these next 21 days.  Allow the Spirit of the Lord to lead you in celebration.  This will be a time of bloodline liberation, addictions being broken, transformation in the spirit, and grace and forgiveness being granted!

JOY includes gladness, contentment, and cheerfulness.Joy should be holy and pure. This joy rises above circumstances.  Joy embraces the highest emotion of God and His character.  The joy required of the righteous person (Ps. 150; Phil. 4:4) is produced by the Spirit of God (Gal. 5:22). This kind of joy looks beyond the present time to our future salvation (Rom. 5:2; 8:18; 1 Peter 1:4,6) and to our sovereign God, who works out all things for our ultimate good (Rom. 8:28-30).  This kind of joy is distinct from mere happiness.  Joy like this is possible even in the midst of sorrow (1 Cor. 12:26; 2 Cor. 6:10; 7:4).  Joy has a bodily expression. The Hebrew words mean “to spring,” “leap,” “exult,” “rejoice,” and “shout.”  Joy is the response of the mind to any pleasurable event or state (1 Kings 1:40; Est. 8:17.)

Now, let’s begin these 21 days by restoring JOY! 
DAY 1: Read Nehemiah 8.
  Declare that the JOY of the Lord will become your strength in these next 21 days! 
DAY 2: Read Psalms 4, 5, 51, and 35.  Let the joy of the Lord fill you. Praise Him that He is your source and the object of your joy.
DAY 3: Read Zephaniah 3. Hear Him rejoicing over you. Receive His love. Let Him pour His grace and mercy over you.
DAY 4: Read Luke 1-2.  Rejoice! Ask the Lord to deliver you from grief or trauma. Thank Him that He has come to deliver you from any prison the enemy has devised.
DAY 5: Read Matthew 13. Ask the Lord to uncover the true joy of life to you.
DAY 6: Read Acts 3. Ask the Lord to remove any spirit of infirmity that is holding you back from accomplishing His purpose.  He is coming to the Gate Beautiful.
DAY 7: Read John 2; Luke 10; Mark 2.  Rejoice! Clap your hands. Be willing to go into the fullness of joy.  Do not stop participating halfway through the wedding feast.  Ask the Holy Spirit to remove all the religious ritual that has robbed your joy. Break any power of pharisaism.  Thank God for the new wine.  
DAY 8: Read Luke 1:14&44; Acts 2:46; Jude 24; Heb. 1:9; Mt. 5:12; Hab. 3:18; 2 Cor. 7:13. All these verses will connect you into joy. Memorize two verses. Stand up and twirl. Express to the Lord that you love Him.
DAY 9: Read Isaiah 9 and 11. Thank God for the shifting government. Thank Him and rejoice that change is coming.  Thank Him that your territory will rejoice. Read Joel 2 and 3.
DAY 10: Read Psalm 16.  Declare that the fullness of God’s purposes will overtake you.
DAY 11: Read Revelation 1-5, and 12.  Receive strength to go through the open door that has been set before you. Declare the accuser of the brethren is bound.  Receive power, wealth, and favor.

The Power of Praise!
Praise secures our future and brings us into rest.  Praise should be our response to God when He reveals Himself to us. Therefore, praise should occur at the point of revelation and not just when the promise manifests.  As we praise God in advance when He speaks to us or gives us faith to believe Him for a manifestation of something we desire, He enthrones Himself or makes Himself King over that situation in our life.  Praise comes from a Latin word meaning “value” or “price.” Thus, to give praise to God is to proclaim His merit or worth.  Many terms are used to express this in the Bible, including “glory,” “blessing,” “thanksgiving,” and “hallelujah.”  The Hebrew title of the book of Psalms (“Praises”) comes from the same root as “hallelujah.” Praise is also firmly linked to an individual’s everyday life (Amos 5:21-24).  The Bible displays outbursts of praise! God takes pleasure and delight in His works and expects us to express our joy in what He does.  Praise on earth is an echo of the praise of heaven (Rev. 4:11; 5:9-10).  Praise distinguishes the people of God from the heathen who refuse to render it (1 Pet. 2:9; Eph. 1:3-14; Phil. 1:11; Rom. 1:21).  The act of praising implies the closest fellowship with the One who is being praised.

Now, let’s continue to fill our atmosphere with PRAISE for 10 days!
DAY 12:  Read Psalm 130; Rev. 2:10.  
Praise God for removing your past and extending abundant grace and forgiveness to you.  Stand in His Presence and receive an outpouring of His grace.  Let hope arise new and fresh.  Let assurance of redemption rest upon you, and command all fear to leave.
DAY 13:  Read Psalms 131 – 134.
Praise God and let perfect peace manifest in you.  Stop striving and leaning on your own understanding concerning your circumstances and allow trust to arise.  Embrace the faithful love of God.  As a weaned child rests against his mother’s breast, declare your soul is a weaned child within you.  A weaned child has come to a new place of maturity.  There is no peace until all our enemies are under our feet.  Ascend above your enemies and reach the goal of the throne room.  Sing, praise, and worship in the presence of the LORD.  Receive a new anointing, like the oil poured on Aaron’s head and flowing down the hem of his robe.
DAY 14:  Read Joshua 5 and 6.  
Praise God!  Ask the Lord for the strategy of worship that will dethrone what is invincible in your life and stopping you from moving forward in your promise.
DAY 15:  Read Psalm 34.  
Praise God for the angels that are encamping around you.
DAY 16:  Read Psalm 85.  
Praise God for restoring favor to your land.
DAY 17:  Read Philippians 4.
Thank God for establishing your mind on Him and making you think His thoughts.  Realign your thoughts.  Declare that you will capture each thought you have that is contrary to God’s judgment.
DAY 18:  Read Acts 16:16-34.
Praise God and watch your prison doors let go.  Watch salvation come to those around you who are imprisoned.
DAY 19:  Read Psalm 9.  
Be willing to declare to others how the Lord has touched and manifested Himself to you.  Break out of insecurity and into boldness.
DAY 20:  Read Isaiah 12; Numbers 21:10-18.
Praise breaks open your wells of salvation.  Praise is the cure for dryness.  Receive a renewed spirit!
DAY 21:  Read Jeremiah 42:7. 
“And it came to pass after ten days that the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah.” Declare that new revelation, strategy and plans for your future are being released from the throne room.  Praise God in advance for these manifestations.
