The benefit of JOY!
Joy: What is it?
Delight? Happiness? Light-heartedness? A name?
Probably all of the above are accurate...as far as they go.
However, the Living Word refers to JOY as the LORD'S STRENGTH for us!!!
Joy: The undergirding KNOWING that all is well......in JESUS.
Deep, abiding confidence that GOD knows, cares and IS ABLE.
JOY is much more than an emotion. It is a FACT. It is tangible.
It pervades all of the soul; the MIND, the WILL, and the EMOTIONS of us humans.
JOY gives us PERSPECTIVE, ENERGY, WILL POWER, FOOD FOR THE MIND:
We're reminded in Hebrews 12:2 that "BECAUSE OF the JOY awaiting Him, Jesus endured the cross, disregarding its shame."
What do YOU need to endure? disregard?
Let's continue to align ourselves with TRUTH, my friend. The LIVING WORD of GOD IS TRUTH. JESUS IS TRUTH. JOY is part of that TRUTH.
"THE JOY OF THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH!"
Strong in Jesus Joy,
