Romans 15:13 – I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with JOY, and peace, because you trust in Him; BELIEVING [through the experience of your faith] Then you will overflow, [abound, bubble over] with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.


JOY IS A FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT’S PRESENCE. Galatians 5:22 an indication that He is present.


Hebrews 12:1,2 – Fix your eyes on Jesus, looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher, the Pioneer of the Founder and Perfecter, the Source, the Originator of the faith, the CHAMPION WHO INITIATES AND PERFECTS OUR FAITH…THE SOURCE OF ALL JOY!
