The Joy Of The Lord
THE JOY OF THE LORD It is not the same as happiness. Happiness depends on outward circumstances and cannot sustain a person; only what comes from the Lord can. Jesus was able to endure the cross because of the joy that was set before Him. To open the well of joy: 1. Have gratitude 2. Be giving 3. Be obedient – because when we grieve the Holy Spirit we cannot experience joy.
