John 15:9 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.

It’s difficult to experience joy when we’re mentally and physically fatigued. Sure, we can be amused by a TV show or have fun with our friends and family but, that joy is temporary and incomplete. When the TV show turns off and there’s no one around, there is a joy we need to pull from. That joy only comes from the Lord.

Knowing Jesus loves us and loved us enough to sacrifice Himself for us, is the joy we can consistently pull from on a daily basis. The love of Jesus made us free. The love of Jesus made us righteous. The love of Jesus released the blessing on our lives. The love of Jesus caused us to be in right relationship with God. The love of Jesus allowed us to receive anything we desire from God. The love of Jesus healed our bodies. The love of Jesus gave us the victory over every situation. The love of Jesus allowed us to have authority over all the works of the enemy. This list can go on and on.

When we think about what Jesus has done for us, wherever we are in life, we can experience complete and perfect joy. Draw from the joy that Jesus provided.
