Have you ever noticed that some people are naturally funny? They have a wit so quick, you wonder, how could they think of that so fast.

Why?

Think about these verses in the context of laughter…

James 1:17 (NKJV)

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

Romans 12:8 (NIV)

if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously;if it is to lead,[a] do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

Proverbs 17:22 (NKJV)

22 A merry heart does good, like medicine,[a]
But a broken spirit dries the bones.


I’m convinced that comedy is a God-given spiritual gift of exhortation.


I mean, what is more encouraging than a good laugh? A well-placed laugh in a good sermon only helps keep the audience engaged and possibly drive a point home.

The bible tells us that one of the promises from God is that we will all see trouble during our days on this earth…

Job 14:1(NKJV)

14 “Man who is born of woman
Is of few days and full of trouble.

It’s God’s gift of laughter that gets us through many of those tough days.


 I’m convinced that God has appointed some of us Ministers of Laughter…


So, do you know anyone with a special anointing to make the best situations better and inject some encouraging humor into the worst. Those who can make us smile when we feel like crying. Is it you?

Unfortunately, many comedians and comediennes use their gift to glorify the enemy through vulgarity and profanity, but that doesn’t mean the gift isn’t from God. It’s just misdirected.

Are you a Minister of Laughter? If so, walk in your anointing. You’re important to the Kingdom of God!

BE BLESSTIFIED!

God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
