Paul tells us that joy is one third of the Kingdom of God. You have access to a supernatural joy in the Holy Spirit right within your own spirit that is ready for you to tap into any time you choose. In fact, your spirit is rejoicing even when your soul is filled with negative emotions. We all go through times when we don't feel like worshiping God in our souls. When we go through those times, the best thing to do is to make the deliberate choice to worship God, make the choice to be joyful even though we don't feel like it. Bring your soul into line with your spirit. Choose to rejoice and be joyful even when you don't feel like it. That isn't being untruthful or even a "fake it until you make it" recommendation. Instead, when you choose to rejoice even when your emotions don't feel joyful you acknowledge the truth of the joy in your spirit and allow that truth to override the fact of the depression in your soul. Joy is already in you because you are a citizen of God's Kingdom and filled with the Holy Spirit. Make joy your choice today!
And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord; It shall rejoice in His salvation.— Psalms 35:9 (NKJV)
