Right?

Luke 10

21 In that very hour He was overjoyed and rejoiced greatly in the Holy Spirit, and He said, “I praise You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things [relating to salvation] from the wise and intelligent, and have revealed them to infants [the childlike and untaught]. Yes, Father, for this way was [Your gracious will and choice, and was] well-pleasing in Your sight.  source

You are getting this, right?

YESHUA (JESUS) was overjoyed and rejoicing greatly. This is flat-out happy. We are talking laughing out loud, hand-clapping, pure pleasure and giddy. You do know JESUS is the author of flat-out happy and joy, right? And do you see Who He first shared that happy with? Yes. His Father. Out loud, in front of everybody, sharing.

What if we did the same?

An All Night-er

Luke 6

12 Now at this time Jesus went off to the mountain to pray, and He spent the whole night in prayer to God. 13 When day came, He called His disciples and selected twelve of them, whom He also named apostles (special messengers, personally chosen representatives):  source

I am unaware of anything further in Scripture to tell me what Yeshua and The Father talked about on this occasion, but verse 12 tells me it was an all-night conversation. Considering what He did the next day (verse 13), I think they discussed the calling of His Disciples. Perhaps they discussed Peter and his quick-temper and that in time when the Holy Spirit came to live within him, he would be a devoted and powerful witness. Perhaps they spoke of Judas and his ambitions. Perhaps they spoke of each and every one of the Twelve and by morning’s light, JESUS knew exactly the course before Him and He did it. Always He did the Father’s Will.
