How Joy Comes - Finding Your Voice of Joy


Psalms 42:1 

1 As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my food day and night, While they continually say to me, “Where is your God?” 4 When I remember these things, I pour out my soul within me. For I used to go with the multitude; I went with them to the house of God, With the voice of joy and praise, With a multitude that kept a pilgrim feast. Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance.

Happiness is refreshing like lemonade

The Joy of the Lord is your strength

  • Joy is a fruit of the Spirit. 
  • Joy is an artifact 
  • Joy is a result of something else.
  • Joy cannot be manufactured
  • Joy does not come by song, faith, or prayer
  • Joy is already present in the hearts of Christ Followers
  • Joy is a gift
  • Joy is inevitable (it has to come)

How Does Joy Come?

  • Joy is revealed through the Holy Spirit
  • Joy is revealed through favorable circumstances
  • Joy is revealed through encouraging people and encouraging environments

Philippians 4:4

Rejoice in the Lord always [at all times]. Again I will say, rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus
