One of the many blessings available to the children of God is a very special kind of joy. Christians are able to “greatly rejoice”. They have access to joy that is “unspeakable and full of glory”. A joy so great, so glorious, that it is impossible to truly express with words!
This is a goodly heritage, “joy unspeakable and full of glory”! A blessing that can sustain us till we reach the end of our faith, that is because this “unspeakable joy” is based upon many other blessings: past, present, and future and enables us to joyfully persevere through all kinds of trials in this life.
Romans 5 : 1 – 4 … “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope:”
The Holy Spirit is the source of this joy unspeakable; it cannot be expressed with human words. It is a product of the recreated human Spirit. This joy is not conditional and it is not based by someone’s action to retain it, it is a deposit of the Holy Ghost, and it fills our heart until others can derive their joy and happiness from it. The hates to see you happy, that is why he accuses the brethren always and inflicts us with guilt and condemnation. But when we know our rights in Christ Jesus, we will not allow any of his schemes to steal our joy.
The first thing is to realize that joy is not the same as happiness. Happiness is circumstantial and fleeting. Joy is a heart posture. Joy is meant to be a hallmark of the Christian life. It is a fruit of the Holy Spirit and a gift of God. We best receive this gift when we focus on the truth of who God is, commune with Him through prayer, and rely on the community of believers He has provided.
Joy is also essential in order to bear life’s burdens. We all have heartaches and difficulties, but joy is the lubricant of life. The joy of the Lord will remove the burdens from your heart. Without genuine joy, your life is meaningless. And joy is found only in Jesus. “These things have I spoken unto you, that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.” (John 15:11). It is joy unspeakable and full of glory, Oh, the half has never yet been told. GRACE TO YOUR HEART!
