Experience Joy as a Calm Delight

Experience Joy as a Calm Delight

Joy of Lord

Joy of Lord

 

I have told you these things, that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy and gladness may be of full measure and complete and overflowing.

—John 15:11

Are you like some believers who think that in order to be filled with the joy of the Lord they must be turned on, fired up, and super-hyped? God wants your joy to be full and complete, but that doesn’t mean you have to swing from chandeliers! Some define joy as “hilarity,” and there is some basis for that definition. But according to Strong’s Concordance, the Greek word chara, translated joy in the above verse, means “calm delight.”

My husband, Dave, likens this calm delight to a bubbling brook that just flows along quietly and peacefully, bringing refreshment to everything and everyone along its path. Doesn’t that sound appealing? Of course there will be times when your joy will be supercharged and exciting, but most of the time we will live with a simple “calm delight.”
