In our message about Joy, Deacon Keon helped up to see where true joy comes from.
Joy is directly connected to God and evidence of the Holy Spirit in our life
Romans 15:13 (NIV) May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Joy is the result of the work the Spirit does on the inside
An aspect of Joy is related to our acknowledgment of God’s grace in our lives
Psalm 55:22 (NIV). Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.
The joy of the Lord is my strength
We don’t know how God provides Joy in the midst of pain but we know that supernaturally, God can.
