What is the real joy that comes to us when we know the Lord. It is very hard to describe. Especially to an unsaved friend, or an acquaintance and especially to a stranger from God’s ways.
As you can see from scripture, Joy is one of the nine fruits of the spirit that we all have been given by the Holy Spirit when we were born again. Stir up your gifts. They are yours and they may be dormant inside you right now but stir them up.
Galatians 5:22-25 New King James Version (NKJV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
Also you can go to I Corinthians. There Paul tells us that these gifts are there to be understood with the God given wisdom. These things need to be discerned by your spirit. Lift up yourself. Count it all Joy, in everything you do and experience.
1 Corinthians 2:6-9 New King James Version (NKJV)
6 However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, 8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9 But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
With this in mind here is a great inspiration on the subject of Joy. Study and be edified.
