The Best Way To Live.
Joy is the best way to live. God shared His joy with us so it can become “our” strength. We can rest in His capacity to be wonderful and expect joy to be present. Fullness occurs through the constant practice of truth that creates freedom in God’s nature. The pleasure of God renews us and His fullness causes us to always expect (and experience) joy.
We don’t have to wait for our circumstances to resolve before we experience joy; it is always present. Joy brings us into a place of rejoicing, and the opportunities for joy are right now, right where you are, in whatever the situation. It’s not the difficulty we are rejoicing in, but in who God is for us in the midst of it that we get to celebrate. And that is why joy is the best way to live.
