Joy is a word that can be closely associated with “worship”.  Man has been created “to enjoy God forever”, and “all things are created for our enjoyment”.  But don’t wait for the feeling of joyfulness before you worship–on the contrary, when you begin to worship, then the joy comes.  In fact, it’s when you’re feeling the worst, that you need to worship/”enjoy God”.

Enjoying God begins simply by recognizing Him.  Recognize that He holds the Earth in just the right position in space; that He is infinite, omnipotent, omniscient, forever.  Recognize that the Creator of the Universe chose to lower Himself to a smelly manger.  Recognize that He knows you better than you know yourself–and that He loves you, pursues you.

If that doesn’t fill you with joy…
