Day 189 of 2015

When the Spirit strikes, people speak up.  

Yet He doesn’t coerce or force anyone to do something they don’t want to do.  Instead, the words spill out because of the incredible joy the Spirit brings, a joy that has nothing to do with external circumstances.  

When this joy grips you, you can’t help but share it with everyone around you.

What is the Spirit trying to do in your life?  Where has he produced joy?

Have you built any dams in your life to try to stop the joy from flowing?  If so, what are they?  

Does the same joy grip you that you experienced when you first said yes to Jesus?  If your joy has disappeared, what happened to it?  What will it take to recover it?  

If you find yourself running low on joy, it is a sign that you need to get into the presence of God.  

Joy isn’t an emotion, it is the response of the heart to God’s gentle touch.
