Memorise: Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.Philippians 4:4

Read: Galatians 5:22-23 (KJV)

Bible In One Year: Hosea 9-11, Revelation 2


People often mistake joy for happiness, but these two are very different. Happiness depends on circumstances and situations. If for example you are given a new pair of shoes, or you pass your exams in flying colours you are expected to be happy, and there is nothing wrong with that. However there is something much deeper that happiness and that is joy.

Joy is the deep-rooted gladness that is unstoppable, and not affected by changes in the circumstances and situations around; it can only be given by the Holy Spirit. Joy is a function of faith in God. This means that a deep knowledge of God’s Word will automatically give joy. How much of the Holy Spirit do you carry? How well do you know God? How much of His Word do you have on your inside? Do you have joy? Philippians 4:4 commands us to rejoice at all times no matter the situation, are you capable of doing this?

Prayer Point: Sweet Holy Spirit, please fill my heart with Your joy. Give me the grace to study your Word continuously that I may know you deeply.

Hymn 14

O spread the tidings ’round,
Wherever man is found,
Wherever human hearts and
Human woes abound.
Let every Christian tongue
Proclaim the joyful sound:
The Comforter has come!

The Comforter has come!
The Comforter has come!
The Holy Ghost from heav’n,
The Father’s Promise giv’n,
O spread the tidings ’round,
Wherever man is found:
The Comforter has come!

The long, long night is past;
The morning breaks at last;
And hushed the dreadful wail
And fury of the blast,
As o’er the golden hills
The day advances fast!
The Comforter has come!

Lo, the great Kings of Kings,
With healing in His wings,
To every captive soul a full
Deliv’rance brings;
And thro’ the vacant cells
The song of triumph rings;
The Comforter has come!

O boundless love divine!
How shall this tongue of mine
To wond’ring mortals tell
The matchless grace divine-
That I, a child of hell,
Should in His image shine?
The Comforter has come!
