How can one have joy in the midst of life’s ups and downs? At times the enemy uses wounds from the past to keep you from enjoying your life. As you may have already know, l am on a pursuit to live and experience all that was released for me at Calvary when Jesus Christ gave Himself for us. And unspeakable Joy is definitely our portion in Jesus Christ.
There is a joy that is unspeakable, inexpressible, unshakable and full of glory, this Joy we find in the presence of God. In the presence of God there is fullness of joy -Psalms 16:11.
So how do we get this Joy?
🔹There is undoubtedly something in life that we choose to make a source of our joy. Even the people in our lives can be our source or even achievements, jobs the list is unending.
🔸If you however base your joy on people, material things then your joy is conditioned to those things.
♦️You can’t need everyone’s approval before you decide to ignite the spark God has put in your life. You give them power to blow you out too.
🛑Therefore the only constant joy that is never ending, inexpressible, full and glorious is found in God, by us believing in Him, and making Him the source of our joy.
Joy unspeakable is found in the Lord!
