Real Joy

Free online devotionalsMay the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13

As a third-century man was anticipating death,
he penned these last words to a friend which remain true today:

It’s a bad world, an incredibly bad world.
But I have discovered in the midst of it, a quiet and holy people who have learned a great secret.
They have found a joy which is a thousand times better than any pleasure of our sinful life.
They are despised and persecuted, but they care not.
They have overcome the world. These people are Christians — and I am one of them.”

Dear one, happiness is like the moon. It shines brightly and then clouds over.
But Joy is like the sun – always shining even when night falls or clouds cover it.
Happiness comes from humans  –  joy is from God.  It’s one of His attributes!

Friend, when you invite Jesus into your heart, God’s  joy is just a prayer away.
