A major factor in always living in the Joy of the Lord is prioritizing praise and thanksgiving to God in our lives.
True, lasting joy is a gift from God. It’s not of ourselves. Therefore, to have joy in the Lord requires us to engage in remembering God.
Can we be honest with each other? How about just ourselves? Do we have real joy in the Lord? Or, do we just say we do?
The purpose of believers is to praise God. Yet, we do a poor job of it. In fact, we are actually guilty of tempting and limiting God.
