If you want to experience and keep True Joy in your heart, read the Scriptures. GOD truly wants us to live in HIS Joy. GOD wants us to be Joyful to show the world that living for HIM is an awesome thing. HE doesn’t want sad, depressed, scared Christians walking around like you’re not enjoying living for GOD. Choose to live in JOY
Nothing the world has to offer can give you true JOY or everlasting JOY –
In John 15 JESUS talks about having a strong relationship with HIM and in verse 11, HE says – “These things have I spoken unto you, that MY JOY might remain in you, and that your joy might be full”.
Psalm 16:11 says when we are in HIS presence it is fullness of JOY.
Acts 8 talks about the miracles of GOD in Samaria people being delivered & healed and there was Great JOY in the city.
Acts 13:52 “And the disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Ghost” (Being filled should bring you joy)
Romans 14:17 “For the Kingdom of GOD is not meat & drink; but righteousness, and peace, and (Watch this) JOY in the Holy Ghost.
1 John 1:4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
Joy is based on a relationship with JESUS CHRIST.
Paul learned to rejoice in HIS relationship with JESUS. His joy was deep in his heart. Put it deep in your heart so when troubles come you automatically know HE is right there with you.
He will never leave us nor forsake us.
He will stick closer than a brother.
TRUST HIS WORD and HIS promises
Accept HIS LOVE and know HE is in control
There is very little I can do in my life that will give me True Joy. I depend on GOD to give me True Joy.
Jesus will never let you down.
