“Jesus said, “Ask and you will receive, so that your joy will be the fullest joy” John 16:24.
Someone said “Joy is not the absence of trouble but the presence of Christ.” We often get the wrong impression that our joy depends on our circumstances.
When good things happen to us, we smile and have an outward appearance of joy. But real joy is something that even troubles and tears cannot take away our joy in the Lord. Internetpreachersforchrist.co.uk
