What joy is so great that there is no way to interpret it? No words can describe it. It is inexpressible; it is the joy of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

“Why am I so honored, that the mother of my Lord should visit me? When I heard your greeting, the baby in my womb jumped for joy. You are blessed because you believed that the Lord would do what He said.” Luke 1:43-45

Elizabeth (pregnant with John the Baptist at the time) was visited by Mary (pregnant with Jesus) and though she could not see Him she recognized the presence of the Lord before He was born. Even the baby within her jumped for joy at the presence of Jesus. It was an honored visit for Elizabeth because she recognized the gift that was before her.

It is a gift that is available to us every day. There is unmatched joy found in Jesus that cannot be explained but is readily available for us to embrace!

As this joy came to Mary because she believed and trusted God that He would do as He said, we must do the same.  When we believe in Him, even though we cannot see Him, He will fill us as no one else can. We will receive inexpressible inner joy that cannot be extinguished!

“Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy.” 1 Peter 1:8
