Dare to shine His light on Joy

Your Joy Is Your Power
The world is always seeking happiness, but happiness is only an emotion that can come and go without warning.

On the other hand, joy is one of the most powerful spiritual forces in the world and one of the fruits of the Spirit that only comes from a relationship with Almighty God.

Nehemiah 8:10 says, “The joy of the Lord is our strength.”

That strength we find in Him gives us the power to overcome trials and great obstacles in our lives.

That’s what makes joy so crucial. You can’t live a life of faith without being strong in the Lord—and when God wants to make you strong, joy is what He uses to do the job!

The joy of the Lord is not dependent upon your circumstances—it comes from your spirit. When the truth in God’s Word gets down into your spirit, the truth will set you free from bondage, depression and fear.
