First off according to the dictionary joy is the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying. It’s a source or cause of keen pleasure or delight; something or someone you greatly valued or appreciate. It’s the expression or display of glad feelings, a state of happiness.
Scripture tells us that joy comes from the Lord. That’s is delighting in Him and all He has done for you. Joy is a choice. We get to choose how we are going to react to situations, people, and all the other things we come across in this life. I have included in this article some of my favorite scriptures on Joy and made this post easy for you to print so you can put these scriptures in an area where you can read them several times a day. The best way to choose Joy is to focus on the source of our Joy.
