1 Peter 1:8 says; “Yet believing, you rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.”
Joy is the link between what you have prayed for and what you receive. Tremendous things happen when a person is full of joy. The enemy doesn’t quite know what to do with someone who has joy no matter what. Now, I am not saying it is always easy – but it is possible.
You see, joy is your faith in action. When you have joy in the midst of a trial – your faith is speaking. Your faith is saying ‘I believe God completely and I am going to act like it.’ After, we don’t stand in defeat trying to enforce victory, we stand in FAITH, full of JOY and IN VICTORY, enforcing the enemy’s defeat in our lives! There is JOY in that!
