Until now you have not asked for anything in My name. ASK and you will receive, and your joy will be complete – John 16:24
Joy is more than happiness. The word happiness comes from the root hap, which means “chance.” Where happiness is circumstantial, joy is not.
Joy is an unshakeable confidence in the truths of God despite circumstances.
When people see absolute certainty in the life of one who knows God personally, they are impressed and drawn to know Him themselves.
Let your prayer focus on receiving His grace to be immersed in JOY, irrespective of the odds, stagnation and mood swings.
