James 1:2-3 says Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trails for many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
Where do you find joy? Are you finding it in the stuff you have? Are you seeking it in a person? Do you even know if joy is present in your life? You might think that this is a trick question but it’s not. Today I pray that you have joy and have it abundantly.
When you love the Lord, you have joy unspeakable joy in your life. When you have faith in Jesus you have joy in your life. When you trust the Lord, you have joy in your life.
Joy cannot be brought it cannot be obtain through moral mortal men. Joy comes from the Father. We tend to get confused about joy we think that when we are laughing and everything is running smooth then we have joy, and when things are difficult we say our joy is gone we don’t have joy. See that is what the enemy wants you to believe.
You can be going through a hard time and during it your joy remains intact. For we don’t walk by sight but by faith. Starting today you need to be walking in the assurance of God’s joy that only He gives. Because no one can snatch it or rob you from your joy, but if you give a person or a situation the permission to take it then guess what life will take it.
