Joy is available just as misery is available. Peace is available as is turmoil. Righteousness is available as is condemnation. You can choose blessings or curses. You always have a choice. We will never enjoy life unless we make the conscious decision to do so! You can choose to have a day full of Joy, that is why Deuteronomy 30:19 tells us to choose life and blessings.
The first thing as believers is to know that God intended you to walk in continual Joy, and second is to tap into it!
The choice has always been yours.
“I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live,”
Deuteronomy 30:19 ESV
“…And do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.””
Nehemiah 8:10 ESV
