The Joy of the Lord

April 6, 2011

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, … How does the fruit of the Spirit – joy, manifest?

From Netbible Gal 5:22 joy[5479] means to rejoice exceedingly, to take great, exceeding, full delight in

Look how the Lord himself expresses joy. Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is with you{in your midst}, He is mighty{a victorious warrior} to save; He will exult[07797] over you with great joy[08057], He will quiet you{renew you} with His love, He will rejoice[01523] over you with singing[07440].

From Netbible Zeph 3:17  exult[07797] means to display joy joy[08057] means to celebrate, take great pleasure in rejoice[01523] means to spin, circle, whirl round (under the influence of any violent emotion) – expressing joy singing[07440] means to proclaim praise, shout joy – triumph/overcome

The Lord shows His joy here by taking great pleasure in and celebrating with singing, shouts of joy AND whirling, spinning around. Psalm 16:11  You will show me the path of life; In Your presence[06440] is fullness[07648] of joy[08057]; At Your right hand are pleasures[05273] forevermore.

From NetBible Zeph 3:17Ps 16:11  presence[06440] means before the face of joy[08057] in Ps 16:11 is the same as Zeph 3:17 means to celebrate, take great pleasure in fullness[07648] means to be filled with abundance, satisfied pleasures[05273] delight, sweetness, sweet music /singing

Doesn’t this sound like King David as he danced before the Lord? 2 Samuel 6:12-16Now King David was told, “The LORD has blessed the household of Obed-Edom and everything he has, because of the ark of God.” So David went to bring up the ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David with rejoicing[08057]. 13 When those who were carrying the ark of the LORD had taken six steps, he sacrificed a bull and a fattened calf. 14 Wearing a linen ephod, David was dancing[03769] before[06440] the LORD with all his might[05797] , 15 while he and all Israel were bringing up the ark of the LORD with shouts and the sound of trumpets. 16 As the ark of the LORD was entering the City of David, Michal daughter of Saul watched from a window. And when she saw King David leaping [06339] and dancing [03769] before [06440] the LORD, she despised him in her heart.

From NetBible Zeph 3:17 & 2 Sam 6:12-16  rejoicing in 2 Sam 6:12 is the same as Zeph 3:17 – joy[08057] means to celebrate, take great pleasure in From the root[08056] means to show glee, joy with the whole disposition, whole heart From the root[08055] means to brighten up – the whole disposition, whole heart dancing[03769] in 2 Sam 6:14 is similar to rejoice[01523] in Zeph 3:17 they mean to spin, circle, whirl might[05797] in 2 Sam 6:14 means strength, power, boldness in praise leaping[06339] in 2 Sam 6:16 means strong bounding, springing From root [06338] meaning refined pure gold before [06440] in 2 Sam 6:14 means before the face of, in the presence of

Sorrow may last for a night, but joy comes in the morning -Ps 30:5

for I have put my trust in You. Show me the way I should go, for to You I lift up my soul.

Word Study

From: NetBible Isa 11:3
* The Hebrew text reads literally, “and his smelling is in the fear of the Lord.” In Amos 5:21 the Hiphil of רוּחַ (ruakh, “smell”) carries the nuance of “smell with delight, get pleasure from.” There the Lord declares that he does not “smell with delight” (i.e., get pleasure from) Israel’s religious assemblies, which probably stand by metonymy for the incense offered during these festivals. In Isa 11:3 there is no sacrificial context to suggest such a use, but it is possible that “the fear of the Lord” is likened to incense. This coming king will get the same kind of delight from obeying (fearing) the Lord, as a deity does in the incense offered by worshipers. Some regard such an explanation as strained in this context, and prefer to omit this line from the text as a virtual dittograph of the preceding statement.

Joyful in Hope

February 9, 2009

Job 6:11   What strength do I have, that I should still hope? What prospects, that I should be patient?

Romans 12:1   Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual act of worship.

It’s only as we enter the Lord’s presence and linger at the feet of Jesus, that we can keep His great mercy and love in view. In the Lord’s presence there are new mercies each morning; there is fullness of joy and hope. Great is His faithfulness!

Lingering at the feet of Jesus, waiting on Him, it’s here that our hope and strength are renewed. It’s only by keeping His mercy and love in view that we can persevere and not faint. Only at the feet of Jesus can we be joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer.


Worship the LORD with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. –Ps 100:2

This I recall to my mind, Therefore I have hope. Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassion fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. ‘The LORD is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘ Therefore I hope in Him!‘ The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him.”  –Lam 3:21-25

I have set the LORD continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. … You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. –Ps 16:8, 11

But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” –Isa 40:31

Romans 12:12
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful{persistant} in prayer.

Psalm 31:24
Be strong and take heart,
{He will strengthen your heart} all you who hope in the LORD.
