Jesus is My Joy

My answer to the question:
Who is Jesus to you?
Jesus is my joy
In His presence is fullness of joy
This joy of Jesus is for now and forever –Psalms 16:11
Jesus is the Everlasting God –Isaiah 40:28-31;Psalms 90:1-2
Everlasting Joy –Isaiah 35:10, 51:11
My favorite way to share the joy of Jesus
Is through worship –Psalms 33:1,147:1
I can’t believe this joy in Jesus is for me
Is mine! –Song Solomon 6:3
Psalms 33:1 NKJV … Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous! For praise from the upright is beautiful.
Psalms 147:1 NKJV … Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful.
Song Solomon 6:3 NKJV … My beloved has gone to his garden, to the beds of spices, to feed His flock in the gardens, and to gather lilies. 3 I am my Beloved’s, and my Beloved is mine. He feeds his flock among the lilies.


Word Study
From NetBible Ps 16:11
You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence[06440] is fullness[07648] of joy[08057]; In Your right hand there are pleasures[05273] forever.

  • presence[06440] = before the face of
  • fullness[07648] = abundance, satisfied – in excess
  • joy[08057] = celebrate, take great pleasure in – exceeding joy=fullness
  • pleasures[05273] = delight, sweetness, sweet music /singing
  • * abundance of joy[08057] is with Your face/presence[06440]
    -The plural form of the noun שִׂמְחָה {simkhah, “joy”-may emphasize the degree of joy experienced.} occurs only here and in

    Ps 45:1My heart overflows[07370] with a good theme; I address my verses to the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
  • overflows[07370] = is moved, gushing – indites{ boils or bubbles up – a metaphor taken from a fountain that sends up its waters from the earth in this way.}

From NetBible Ps 147:1
Praise the LORD! For it is good to sing praises to our God; For it is pleasant[05273], and praise is beautiful.
