God wants you to be truly happy today! Find out the 3 SECRETS to super happiness found in Jesus your JOY!

The word joy means to feel great happiness and delight because of something exceptionally good or satisfying. The great king David said, “God has given me greater joy than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine.”

As a Christian, God wants you filled with happiness that is far better than what a rich man feels at harvest time!

Here are the 3 secrets we discovered in the bible about true happiness.

JOY SECRET #1 – WHAT JESUS SAID ABOUT YOU

  1. You are totally RIGHTEOUS before God, through Jesus your righteousness!
  2. You are very much LOVED by God!
  3. You have God himself as your FATHER in heaven!

As a righteous and beloved child of God, the bible tells us to be glad in the Lord, to rejoice, and to shout for joy. Dear friend, stop and do that right now!

JOY SECRET #2 – WHY YOU MUST BE HAPPY

  1. You are SHELTERED by God who spreads his protection over you!
  2. You are becoming PERFECT and your character is strengthened as you go through troubles!
  3. You are going to a place of very great GLORY to be with Jesus, where you will live forever!

When you know why you should be filled with joy, you can make a deliberate choice to be happy. Say aloud now, “I am not a slave to my feelings. I choose to be happy, and I will be joyful!”

JOY SECRET #3 – WHERE YOUR JOY COMES FROM

  1. God fills you with peace and joy when you believe in JESUS.
  2. God gives you true happiness when you are filled with the HOLY SPIRIT of God.
  3. God gives you fullness of joy when you SPEND TIME alone with him.

Say aloud, “Dear Jesus, I allow you to fill me with joy, and I will sing aloud of your goodness to me. Fill me with your spirit! I love you Jesus!”
