What is a Bible verse about finding joy in your day?

That’s a really good question. You know one of the verses that comes to my mind just as I think about being a joyous and a happy person as a Christian is actually a Bible verse found in Psalms chapter 16 and verse 11. And this verse has really spoken to me as I’ve thought about joy and thought about just the fulfillment and happiness in my life. This one really gives the solution as to what is the very thing that’s gonna give you joy day to day. It says here in Psalm 16:11 it says:

“You will show me the path of life because in your presence is fullness of joy and at your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.”

What’s interesting because for me when I read that text I find that the source of joy it says is at your right hand God in your presence is fullness of joy and in the world today you have a lot of different ideas of where you can get joy where it comes from. There are people who will tell you the money will bring you joy and money will bring you happiness, but you know it’s it’s very interesting because many of the people in the world you end up having a lot of money they’ll tell you that you know money can buy a lot of things. It can buy you a house, but it can’t give you a home. It can buy you companions, but it doesn’t give you true friends. So people will tell you over and over again that money doesn’t really satisfy. It brings you a momentary amount of joy, but it doesn’t last.

You know that’s what you find in this world. Relationships will will give you some joy but they’re not lasting. Money will give you some joy, but it’s not lasting. The only thing in this world that gives you true lasting joy, the Bible says, is in God’s presence. And so practically how can you apply that to your day-to-day life, William, well I think it would be to start your day with God. Spend time reading His word. Spend time in prayer. Ask God to bring His presence near and close to you. And as you experience that presence you’re going to find that He’s going to give you so many more things to be happy about and you’re going to find that as you come in contact with other people they’re going to wonder why you are are so filled with joy and that’s really because you’re going to the Source the One who can give you true joy that will last no matter what the circumstances – no matter how your day goes. At the end of the day you can still be happy because you’ve been with God.
