The Surprising Power of Joy Part 2

Nov 29, 2020


When it comes to Joy, we are not trying to make something happen. We are leaning into what is already available to us.

God has created each of us to do big things that naturally come out of the overflow of who He is and who we are in Him. His resources are more than enough for our own needs and to give it away. Joy from God isn’t based on circumstances or happenings, but on Him: the God of love that never changes. As we learn to receive and cultivate the joy that comes through the Holy Spirit, we will see the very transformation and redemption that we were created to bring forth.

“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.” John 15:9-11
