Quotes About Joy Of God

These people are like ... a frog living in a well, who has never seen the outside world. He knows only his well, so he will not believe that there is such a thing as the world. Likewise, people talk so much about the world because they have not known the joy of God.
— Ramakrishna —

God smiles when we praise and thank Him continually. Few things feel better than receiving heartfelt praise and appreciation from someone else. God loves it, too. An amazing thing happens when we offer praise and thanksgiving to God. When we give God enjoyment, our own hearts are filled with joy.

— William Law

Every day. I wrote Dallas's words on a piece of paper, and they hang above my office door: "Arrange your days so that you experience total contentment, joy, and confidence in your everyday life with God." They are the first words I see every morning when I come to work. The stream is your soul. And you are the Keeper.

— John Ortberg

We will always prefer lesser satisfactions to the satisfaction of Christ, because the lesser ones appeal to the god of self-a ravenous, insatiable, fickle idol indeed-while satisfaction in Christ requires that we assassinate that god. We won't know what it really means for the joy of the Lord to be our strength until we've had intravenous idolatry yanked out and all other crutches kicked away. For many of us, Jesus won't be our absolute treasure until we are out of options.

— Jared C. Wilson

Remember the infamous question that most of us learned back in the days of youth group powwow sessions? That's right. How far is too far? Which is really a code question asking, "How much can I get away with and not make God mad?" Let's start asking a new question: "How far can I possibly go to bring joy to the heart of my heavenly Father in this area of my life?

— Eric Ludy

When humility delivers a man from attachment to his own works and his own reputation, he discovers that perfect joy is possible only when we have completely forgotten ourselves. And it is only when we pay no more attention to our own deeds and our own reputation and our own excellence that we are at last completely free to serve God in perfection for His own sake alone.

— Thomas Merton

People who have come to know the joy of God do not deny the darkness, but they choose not to live in it. They claim that the light that shines in the darkness can be trusted more than the darkness itself and that a little bit of light can dispel a lot of darkness. They point each other to flashes of light here and there, and remind each other that they reveal the hidden but real presence of God.

— Henri J.M. Nouwen

Live a life of love, especially the love of God, and observe the joy of it. Live a life of lovelessness and observe the joylessness of it.

— Peter Kreeft

The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad; the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the crocus; 2 it shall blossom abundantly and rejoice with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, the majesty of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the LORD, the majesty of our God.

— Anonymous.

The essential is never to arrive anywhere, never to be anywhere. The essential is to go on squirming forever at the edge of the line, as long as there are waters and banks and ravening in heaven a sporting God to plague his creature, per pro his chosen shits. I've swallowed three hooks and am still hungry. Hence the howls. What a joy to know where one is, and where one will stay, without being there. Nothing to do but strech out comfortably on the rack, in the blissful knowledge you are nobody for eternity.

— Samuel Beckett

The more radical the change, the greater the joy. And it's worth every effort, for this is the joy of God.

— Max Lucado

Hereby perceive we the love of God, because He laid down His life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. How often I think of that 'ought.' No sugary sentiment there. Just the stern, glorious trumpet call, OUGHT. But can words tell the joy buried deep within? Mine cannot. It laughs at words.

— Amy Carmichael

When my decision for Christ was made ... I knelt in prayer. I opened my heart and knew for the first time the sweetness and joy of God, of truly being born again ... I knew in my heart that I was somehow different and changed. That night absolutely changed the direction of my life.

— Billy Graham

Remember, the first road to God is prayer, the second is joy.

— Paulo Coelho

The key is love, the action is service, and the joy is knowing the grandeur that is God in us and in everything.

— Dorothy Maclean

He (God) is determined to pursue you because He knows the greatest joy in your life will come from His lan for you.

— Beth Moore

Eid is a time of joy, after a season of fasting and prayer and reflection. Each year, the end of Ramadan means celebration and thanksgiving for millions of Americans. And your joy during this season enriches the life of our great country. This year, Eid is celebrated at the same time as Hanukkah and Advent. So it's a good time for people of these great faiths, Islam, Judaism and Christianity, to remember how much we have in common: devotion to family, a commitment to care for those in need, a belief in God and His justice, and the hope for peace on earth.

— George W. Bush

O joy of suffering! To struggle against great odds! to meet enemies undaunted! To be entirely alone with them! to find how much one can stand! To look strife, torture, prison, popular odium, death, face to face! To mount the scaffold! to advance to the muzzles of guns with perfect nonchalance! To be indeed a God!

— Walt Whitman
