Day 21: Joy

“Happiness” and “joy” are often used interchangeably, but they’re not the same.  Happiness is an emotion and tied to our circumstances.  Joy, on the other hand is a gift from God – a fruit of the Spirit that transcends whatever is happening in our lives. Joy allows us to rise above difficult circumstances, challenges, and heartaches. 

Joy comes from knowing God and His promises.  God is faithful and nothing can thwart what God has planned for us.  We can take confidence in Him regardless of what circumstances we’re living through.  

As we end our 21 days of fasting and prayer today, let’s be reminded of who God is and what He has promised.  Let’s reflect on all the ways that God has shown His faithfulness and love, how He strengthened us and how He answered prayer. 

We have reason to be joyful - His name is Jesus!

Scriptures

Psalm 16:11 (ESV)
You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Romans 14:17 (ESV)
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
