Bible Verses About Joy To Brighten Your Day

Spread the love

Finding the Joy of Your Salvation

The joy of the Lord is one of the biggest benefits and sources of strength that is available to a believer in Jesus.

It is my prayer that these Bible verses about joy will be a blessing and a source of strength for you.

It is a promise of God that His joy will be your strength. The promises of God transcend what is happening here on earth.

When a believer discovers that joy is not based on circumstance, they can walk through anything and still say it is well with their soul. No matter what is happening in your life, you can find the joy of the Lord.

These verses about joy will help you get to the same point that Jesus did when the Bible says “For the joy set before Him, He endured the cross.”
