Isaiah 61

Everlasting Joy

Isaiah 61:7 "Instead of their shame My people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice ... everlasting joy will be theirs."

Do you have everlasting joy? Now before you start feeling guilty about a lack of joy, you should remember this: Happiness is a surface emotion, dependent upon circumstances. Joy is a deep sense of serenity that endures, whatever the circumstances.
