Joy is an essential fruit of the Holy Spirit.
A world in seeming 24/7 crisis, personal distress, diligent labor, and troubles facing family and friends make joy appear irrelevant at best, unattainable at worst.
When a baby is loved and wanted, then raised in a positive environment, his or her cluster of pleasure neurons forms naturally in the organic brain. Faced with negatives that come in life, he or she can face it and rebound quickly.
As spirit ministry is added to this mix, not only does the baby have the extreme head start of an intentional love-base in the family, but he/she also has the specific nurture of joy in the spirit which then actively directs his/her soul to rebound as he/she grows.
Baby Boy’s Pure Joy over Trial
I’ve invested in spirit ministry for fifteen years. During that time, countless babies, children, teens and adults have received spirit ministry focusing on joy.
A dear baby boy was born with a hole in his heart, and though much prayer and faith were exerted for healing, he still had to endure a surgery before he turned one year old. The Lord directed me to create a specific joy blessing which his mom spoke to him more than once before the surgery. He literally giggled to my surprise and hers, as she spoke to him about the upcoming surgery, having taken to his spiritual heart the truth to “count it pure joy when you face trials of many kinds,” James 1:2. His parents had invested heavily in nurturing his spirit in the womb, and it was with pure faith he received the direction/blessing from the Lord about this specific trial which he recovered from well.
Why it’s Prime Time for Babies
It is much easier to minister to babies in the womb and get positive results than with some teenagers, and most adults, because they have so few layers of resistance to work through. (There is hope for teenagers and adults! We’ve just got to approach it with relentless hammer on the rock. The hammer being the word of God and the rock being the resistance. The easiest, gentlest way to apply the hammer to those rocks of resistance is to listen at night to specific portions of Scripture and/or anointed spirit ministry.)
Another reason that it’s easier to build an expansive joy base in the spirits of babies in the womb, and young children, is science that backs the word of God (the kingdom of heaven belongs to these, Mark 10:14). There are different percentages given, but at this government site, it’s said that about 60% of the adult body is composed of water. However, babies are born with about 78% water which drops to about 65% by the time they turn one year of age (Water.usgs.gov).
Sound travels faster in water. In calm water, it sounds amplified as sound skims the surface because water cools the sound and slows it down.
What does that mean?
Sound waves permeate the body’s watered cells, penetrating to the cellular level, faster than sound waves in air only.
At night or during naps, when the baby is in a state of calm, sound is amplified.
During those times (in the womb, as early in life as possible, in a state of calm), playing joy spirit ministry and selected Scripture quickly builds the Kingdom of God in that child, affirming to him/her what the Father placed in his/her eternal spirit. Without layers of resistance, the child’s spirit and organic cells absorb the Spirit-led word and reverberate to that frequency. This investment causes them to grow strong, quickly, in spirit!
“For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit,” Romans 14:17 [bold mine].
Teens and Adults
Most of us didn’t have this head start in life for an expansive joy base. Thus, we’re working from the bottom up (our spirits back to Father) instead of from the top down (His Spirit to ours).
It’s true that there are more layers of resistance for teens and adults to spirit growth, and joy base expansion, than for babies and children.
The good news is with the Father that each day is a new opportunity for a fresh start!
It’s also true that the Kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. And He wants you to have an expanded joy base so that you can move through the troubles and trials of your own life, the traumas and troubles of your family, and the world around you, and get back to joy. As you get back to that place of joy, you can move forward with strength and energy.
