Happiness comes and goes and is ordinarily dependent on our circumstances whether they are pleasing to us or not, don’t you think? Even joy can come at any moment and yet be gone in an instant. Given the up and down nature of our lives, given the state of this world right now which is in such dire straits, the last thing in the world that seems true about joy is that it comes with a guarantee. But there is a joy unfathomable, a joy unspeakable, a joy unimaginable, a joy indescribable, a joy guaranteed NO MATTER WHAT is happening in our individual lives or in this world.
THE JOY found in THE LORD JESUS CHRIST and in a FOREVER RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD. This a joy given to us BY JESUS CHRIST and found IN JESUS CHRIST that nobody but Jesus can give us and that nobody and nothing can take from us!
IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD ALMIGHTY, when we are alone with God, when we pray to Him and read the Bible, when we seek Him and hear Him, when we praise Him and sing to Him, when we spend time by ourselves with Him, when we feel His presence and know He is with us, when we rejoice in Him, when we meditate on Him and on His goodness, when we thank and bless Him, when we listen to His Holy Spirit speaking to our hearts, when we commune with Him, when we rest in Him and trust in Him, when we look to Him and put our hope and expectation in Him, WE CAN EXPERIENCE A JOY BEYOND BELIEF.
THE JOY OF JESUS. FULLY GUARANTEED. THROUGH AN EVERLASTING RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD!
The starting place? Turn from a lifestyle of sin, believe in Jesus as Lord and that He died for you and rose from the dead, and surrender yourself to the lordship and rule and reign of God in your life. This is being born again spiritually. God will forgive you, His Holy Spirit will come to live in you, and you will be given a personal relationship with Him and forever with Him in heaven.
Learn to live in obedience to God and to follow the Lord day by day. SPEND TIME ALONE WITH HIM AND READ THE BIBLE REGULARLY. And experience and rejoice in THE JOY OF JESUS. Hallelujah, glory, all absolutely all glory to the LORD! Amen!
