“I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation” (Habakkuk 3:18).
There is a huge difference between happiness and joy. For happiness to occur, things must go your way. Joy is very different. Joy depends on a relationship with the Lord Jesus. This joy is an inner gladness and peace because it is based upon Him.
For today: You can have joy if you know the Lord Jesus as your Savior. It is entirely possible that you may have times of not being happy today, but you still can have joy!
