75 Confessions for a Joyful Heart

LIVE webinar: How to Speak In Tongues | June 26, 2024

Is your life truly filled with joy? If not, speaking God’s Word of joy over yourself out loud will help you receive a joyful heart from the Lord. The joy of the Lord is your strength; He wants you to have more joy than you can even express!

I have been asking the Lord for more joy lately.

I’m blessed, and I’m always grateful for that–but that doesn’t mean I am filled with joy. Sometimes I “feel” joyful, and sometimes I don’t. But, knowing that the joy of the Lord is my strength and that in His presence is fullness of joy, I desire to be filled with His joy and glory at all times! Don’t you?

So I felt led to begin studying joy.

Remember that joy is not a feeling; it is a fruit of the Spirit. It is something that God gives. And as I began studying joy in the Bible, I realized that we have to learn joy. We have to pay attention to what God says about joy, and then learn to operate in it and walk in it.

    Learning about joy happens the same way we have to learn to walk in love, peace, patience, or any of the other fruit of the Spirit. Holy Spirit gives the joy, but we have to learn how to incorporate it into our daily lives and become filled with joy.

    Well, with anything, it will always help to speak the Word of God over our situations.

    Proverbs 18:21 says that “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit” (NKJV). So if we want to be filled with joy, we have to speak the word of life over ourselves. That word of life is always God’s Word–the Bible.

    So, I researched and wrote the 75 Biblical confessions below for a joyful heart.

    I encourage you to begin speaking some of these confessions over yourself every day. And even if you don’t speak all 75 of them, even speaking one–or ten!–every day will make a big difference!
