spiritual fruits



Joy is defined as "cheerfulness or calm delight;" however, it has nothing to do with your emotions. Joy is something that is manifested in the spiritual realm; it is a supernatural joy that gives spiritual strength (Nehemiah 8:10). The Psalmist and the Prophet Isaiah both refer to it as the joy of salvation
(Psalm 51:12; Isaiah 12:3).

It is divine joy that results from an experiental knowledge of God's Word (John 15:11; Jeremiah 15:16).

Nehemiah 8:10 "For the joy of the Lord is your strength."

Psalm 16:11 "Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence if fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore."

Psalm 35:9 "And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord: it shall rejoice in his salvation."

Psalm 89:15-16 "Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord in the light of thy countenance."

"In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.

Acts 2:28 "Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance."

Romans 14:17 "For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost."
