Thursday Thoughts: Fruits Of The Spirit: Joy

Galations 5:22-23 reads as follows: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”

~Joy comes from the Lord, as we can see all through scripture. It tells us of how we are filled with joy because Christ has saved us, or how we are filled with joy with the thought of Him, or sharing with others His blessings- clearly, joy comes and is given from the Lord.

 ~He is freely ready to give it to us, if we only ask! One of the things that I have been working on lately is finding God’s joy in the simplest of things, for I often find that by overlooking those little things, I miss the bigger picture.

Psalm 16:11– “You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.”

~ One of the sources of joy comes from knowing what is right and rejoicing in it. Jesus has told us in John 14:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

~ We should be joyful and rejoicing in the Lord and the path that He has given us.

 ~We should also be joyful in praising the Lord and telling others about Him and His works, because the Bible says:

Psalm 95:1 “Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.”

Psalm 98:4– “Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth,  burst into jubilant song with music;”

Psalm 107:22 -“Let them sacrifice thank offerings  and tell of his works with songs of joy.”

Psalm 126:3-“The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.”

Joy is one of the most precious gift that God has given us. I highly encourage you to find and show joy every day!

Many blessings!
