“Joy is a work of the Spirit – the indestructible Spirit of God.”
God is indestructible. God is joy. So joy is indestructible.
Let’s pray about this together:
Father, we praise You, the river of life and the indwelling source of our joy. We praise You for the gift of Jesus who gives us free and undeserved access to You through His righteousness.
Please show us Your joy. Please reveal Yourself to us as joyful.
Are there lies from the devil blocking our vision of Your joy and abundant life for us? Please save us from them! Deliver us from the kingdom of darkness into Your light.
We surrender our sadness and desolate places to You in faith that You have so much more for us.
Help us to nail our fleshly desires to the cross. We want to live with our hearts set on You and Your generous affections and provisions for us.
Lead us to lives of joy. Teach us to deny ourselves of anything that stands in our way of reflecting Your joy to those we influence.
In Jesus we believe and pray,
