Verbatim references:


Et sic de similibus references:

This is the day the Lord has made, be happy and glad in it.
Psa 118:
24 This [is] the day [which] the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Arise each morning with the joy of the Lord in your heart.
Psa 32:
11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all [ye that are] upright in heart.

For the joy of the Lord is your strength and your shield against the worst of Satan's fiery darts, the pit of discouragement and self pity.
Neh 8:
10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for [this] day [is] holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

The strength imputed by the Joy of the Lord gives us faith to win the victories and the contentment to offer up to God thanksgiving and praise.
Isa 61:
3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

Brethren, the candle of the Light of Joy is the very foundation of spiritual victory.
Psa 18:
28 For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.
30 [As for] God, his way [is] perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he [is] a buckler to all those that trust in him.
31 For who [is] God save the LORD? or who [is] a rock save our God?
32 [It is] God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.

Don't let Satan blow it out.
Jhn 14:
1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

This little light of mine I'm going to let it shine!
Isa 60:
1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.

Let it shine! Let it shine, this little light of joy of mine.
Mat 5:
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Brethren, go forth through life's journey from victory unto victory, rejoicing with hearts filled to overflowing with Joy.
Psa 98:
1 [[A Psalm.]] O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.
2 The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.
3 He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
4 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
