“The joy of the Lord is your strength” is God’s promise to His people (Nehemiah 8:10)… “The joy of the Lord” is an attribute we receive from heaven. It is both a gift and a choice. The Lord’s joy doesn’t provide constant happiness or shallow amusement. Rather, it is a deep awareness that we are His, and that eternal life is ours.
— Stephen Arterburn in “The Power Book”
