The Fruit of the Spirit is Joy!

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23
Joy is a fruit of the Spirit. When we receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we are born again and the Holy Spirit lives on the inside of us. One of the characteristics of the Holy Spirit is Joy. We are not waiting to get Joy, we have Joy! It has already been given to us. We need to renew our thinking to the Word of God that reminds us that we have all things in Christ… including Complete Joy!

Today's Thought: What are some scriptures that help you renew your thinking, and walk in complete joy?

Always Full of Joy

These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. John 15:11
This scripture tells us that Jesus has given us His Joy. The same joy Jesus had is in us! Jesus says that the things he has spoken to us, keep our joy full. We don’t have to live up one day and down the next.  We have every Word He has spoken in written form in the Bible. Read it! Keep it before you and your Joy will be Constant and Full. 

Today's Thought: What has God spoken to you that keeps your joy constant and full?

Family! Summer Fun 2011

Good Things Ahead...

Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalms 16:11

When you trust God with your life and He directs your steps, then your life is full of purpose and direction. As you continue to focus on that purpose and direction keeping God first place you understand true joy. As we remain in His Presence we experience a Fullness of Joy that cannot be achieved any other way. This verse also promises that at His right hand are pleasures evermore. God has good plans for us and good things for us but to live that out we need to Keep God First!

Today's Thought: What good plans does God have for you?

Walking In Joy!

Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. Hebrews 1:9
This Scripture is talking about Jesus. While on the earth Jesus was anointed by the Holy Spirit. Jesus lived and moved in all of the fruit of the Spirit. One of those is JOY! This verse tells us that, Jesus, at the time he walked the earth, was anointed with JOY above all mankind. The good news is that NOW, we who are IN CHRIST, have the same anointing on the inside of us. We can operate in the same JOY that Jesus walked in. This Joy Jesus had was not based on temporary life but on Eternal life and Him knowing he was in RIGHT relationship with God. 

Today's Thought: What are some ways you can walk in joy?
