Discovering our joy starts with pursuing the truth that sets us free to live in our joy (John 8:32). Spending time in the word of God reveals our joy, strengthens our joy, increases our joy and our desire to be who God has graced us to be. When God is the center of our joy, He will open our heart and the hearts of those around us who need to be strengthened by our joy. The parable of the talents talks about two faithful servants who entered the joy of the Lord where they were made rulers over many things (Matthew 25:14-30). God desires us to enter His joy because it is His presence of grace and truth.
Our true identity in Christ is where the joy of the Lord lives. Our authentic identity in Christ is where the presence of the Lord resides. Anything God is telling us to let go of, will not strengthen His presence in our life that is our strength to succeed in life. Let the joy of the Lord be our consuming passion and desire freeing us to be our authentic self. When we become authentic, we will live authentically and attract authentic blessings in our lifestyle; because life does not happen to us, life flows from us (Proverbs 4:23).
