They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy...Luke 8:13
One of the ways of receiving the word of God is to receive it with joy. God's Word to you is priceless, and it is of great value to you. There is nothing in this world that can equate with it. You should be delighted to be a recipient of God's Word. You should revel at the reception of the Word of God.
Scriptures say about Jesus, in Luke 10:21, that "Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight." The revelation of the Word - Jesus - as the Son of God to His disciples brought joy to Jesus. This is the experience you have when the revelation of God's Word hits you.
As you store up the Word in your heart, you are filling your spirit with Joy. When God told Joshua, in Joshua 1:8, to meditate on the book of the law - the Word, He used the Hebrew word Hagar, which means a number of things including 'to roar in pleasure.' You may be wondering why some folks can't hold themselves from getting excited by the Word of God. The Word is exciting and it elicits joy that cannot be held back. Not even Satan can stop the excitement God's Word brings to you. Get excited by the Word.
Keep winning daily.
Lord Jesus, Your Word is joy to me. The entrance of Your Word brings excitement to my spirit. This joy brings strengthens my resolve to believe and do Your Word always, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
