Joy is an inner attitude of rejoicing in our salvation regardless of outward circumstances. Joy comes from God. (Luke 2:10-11.) It is a gift to those who belong to Jesus. (Romans 15:13.) The Bible teaches that joy is an action choice we make because we follow Jesus Christ. The action can result in the feeling but they don’t always follow each other. So let’s step back and say, “God–You got this,” and then trust that He has it–it’s His battle. Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are (Marianne Williamson). Discover more in this teaching by Pastor Joel Pagett.
