What is the Joy of the Lord?

“The joy of the Lord is the gladness of heart that comes from knowing God, abiding in Christ, and being filled with the Holy Spirit.”

When we try to receive our joy or fulfillment in life from material things, our friends, or our jobs, we are left feeling lost and without hope. In all things, God should be our source for Joy.

Here are 3 ways to find Joy in Him:

The easiest way to have Joy in the Lord, is to spend quiet time with Him! Set apart time to focus on your Heavenly Father. Give Him time to speak to you.

Another way is to read the Bible daily; When you fill yourself up with the Word, there’s no room for negative things to come in throughout the day!

A third way to be filled with Joy is praying in the Holy Ghost. When we pray in the Spirit it builds us up (Jude 1:20) and enables us to more easily to hear God’s voice and His directions to us.

Purposefully spend time this week communing with your Heavenly Father so that you may be filled with His unmatchable joy!

Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, all you who obey Him! Shout for joy, all you whose hearts are pure! Psalm 32:11
