Enter God's Joy

God is everywhere, yet we are often unaware of His presence. During times of worship, as we sing and praise Him, we are focused upon God. He reveals His presence to us, and joy is one way that He does so. Joy is a fruit of the Holy Spirit filling our lives.

The joy of the Lord is for now and forever. Those who truly experience God's presence may testify,"You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand" (Psalm 16:11). Enter His presence with praise through prayer and song. God will fill you with "joy unspeakable and full of glory"(1 Peter 1:8).

Many have yet to learn that there is joy in God's presence. Heaven is a place of everlasting joy in God's presence. Joy may be defined as the eternal pleasure of God's presence, through the one at His right hand, Jesus Christ our Lord. Joy is fruit of the Holy Spirit working in our lives through Christ (Galatians 5:22).

God will fill your life with joy. Enter the joy of the Lord as you sing God's praise. Unfortunately, many people may have the idea that worship is a formal duty or a boring ritual. Quite the contrary, true worship in the Bible is filled with joy. Worship is the way to enter the joy of God. That's life filled with God's joy.
