“For the joy of the Lord is your strength!” Nehemiah 8:10 NLT Joy is not a warm happy feeling you’re supposed to have only when things are going well and disappear when things are not alright. Joy is one of the most powerful spiritual forces in the world. Joy is strength and that makes it very 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. Joy is a fruit of the Spirit and you already have it residing within. However you must develop it, confess it and live by it if you want to enjoy it’s power. Irrespective of the circumstances you are facing at the moment, you can be full of joy. You can be strong in the Lord. You can draw on the supply of the Holy Spirit within you and come out on top. Rejoice and I say again, rejoice! Shalom!
