joy of the Holy Spirit

Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake.
Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?
But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.
(Psalms 115:1-3)



And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost. (I Thessalonians 1:6)

There’s more to following the Lord then simply admiring clouds in the sky. No, the world will oppose you. Expect it, but you can in confidence expect the joy of the Holyy Spirit.
