“Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” — John 7:38
Choose Joy!, by Gini Kittle

It’s no secret to my close friends that I enjoy Joyce Meyer’s ministry.  One of the reasons for this is that she is so joyful.  Whether she’s sharing about a great victory or the way God has used heartbreaking circumstances in her life, you can sense her underlying, unwavering joy. 

I want to live out my life with that same joy … and God wants that for all of us.  God created us for joy!  But where is this joy to come from when life dashes our hopes and destroys our dreams?  Jesus said, “I have told you this so that My joy may be in you” (John 15:11).  Jesus has made a way for us to possess supernatural, unfaltering joy.  But what is the “this” He told us would supply such joy?  The answer lies in an earlier verse.  It says, “As the Father has loved Me, so have I loved you.  Now remain in My love” (John 15:9).  

We can live a life filled with His joy as a direct result of knowing how much Jesus loves us.  Every day can be filled with joy because we know that we are greatly loved by Him — loved personally and passionately!  Jesus loves us unconditionally and unendingly.  You are a child of God and He delights in you!  You are the apple of His eye.  In the light of God’s great love for us, let’s not settle for just trying to get by.  Let us choose to fill our souls with such joy that others will see our joy and want what we have.
