How to Get Fullness of Joy

Fullness of joy is found in the presence of the Holy Spirit. When we remain in communion with him through praying daily, worship, living in obedience, studying the word and fellow-shipping with other believers, we can experience a level of satisfaction that the world cannot give to us. Read Jesus refers to it as, “My joy” in our scripture. Therefore, it is a different kind than what the world provides.

John 15:9-11

As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.

Consider setting aside some additional time for the Lord and purpose in your heart to find a place within his presence where an abundance of joy may be found. Seek and you will find, knock and the laughter will come.

Abiding in the Lord seems to be the key to living in larger measures of his joy. Psalms 16:11 says: “In your presence is fullness of joy; At your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

Prayer: Lord help me to remain in you so that your words will abide in me so that my joy will be made complete.
