Joy and happiness are two very different entities. While happiness stems from outward stimulus, true joy comes from a confident assurance that wells up on our inside. Once your inner environment is set right, your outward expression will definitely catch up!
Things To Believe to Have Joy
Believe that you can do anything you need to. God empowers you for success. Philippians 4:13 (AMP), “I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me (I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency).”
Believe that God can change anything and anyone. Nothing is impossible with him. Mark 10:27 (AMP), “...with men (it is) impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.”
Believe that God can take our mistakes and work them out for your good. Romans 8:28 (AMP), “We are assured and know that… all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to (His) design and purpose.”
Believe what God says about me on the word. 2 Corinthians 1:20(MSG), “Whatever God has promised gets stamped with… Yes…”
Believe that God has the best future for you. You past cannot stop the delivery of your purpose! Jeremiah 29:11(NLT), “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
Get your inner well of joy flowing!
