What Is “The Joy Of The Lord” And How Can I Find It?

   Apostle Kim Moreno

We have a right to rejoice!  The Bible says in Proverbs 17:22, “A joyful heart is good like medicine.”  Living a life infused with joy is part of our spiritual inheritance. The fruit of the spirit is JOY! Joy is supernatural! Joy is from heaven and we have a right to tap into the joy of the Lord.  The Biblical answer for living a life filled with joy is not surprising: It requires both an ATTITUDE and ACTION.  Attitude;  We know from Galatians 5:22 that joy is a supernatural manifestation of Christ’s life in us-part of the Fruit of the Spirit.  But it is up to us to be filled with the Spirit, to embrace the Spirit’s word in ever situation.  Moment by moment in life, and especially in difficult moments, we must carry the conviction that God wants to release His joy over our lives.  Action; Part of walking by faith is …walking! Our responsibility is to act on what God has promised to provide.  We need to act joyfully-giving testimony both verbally and nonverbally that our God is good! And that God will bring good out of every situation and circumstance in our lives for His glory. The circumstances of life many change our reasons for rejoicing, but they don’t change our ability to rejoice! The Bible says that the fruit or evidence that the Holy Spirit is working in us is “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.” We have both the joy of Jesus and the joy of the Holy Spirit.  We have been given a double anointing of JOY!
