Journey Into God’s Word #23
Are you happy? You may think the answer to that question depends on what circumstances you are facing. If things aren’t going well at this time, you may not be feeling very happy, but you still can be joyful. Joy rises above the circumstances to the extent that Paul declared in Philippians 4:4: “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” Paul knew that while happiness may depend on happenings, joy depends on Jesus.
