As you pray this week, meditate on what the bible says about JOY. May we be moving from death to life as we come to live in God’s JOY.

Below are some verses and quotes that you can meditate on. 

Luke 2:10-11 | “10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
Psalm 16:11 | “You have made known to me the path of life; in your presence there is FULLNESS OF JOY; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
Hebrews 12:2 | “Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”
James 1:2 | “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds…”
Romans 15:13 | “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”
