How is it that Christians can be so joyful all the time? Don’t they know what’s going on in the world? Are they the only ones who don’t see the suffering even in their own lives? Answer: Christians can be joyful in any circumstance because Christ is their greatest satisfaction. The psalmist writes,
Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. – Psalm 73:25
There is none like Him. And there is no one or nothing that provides the satisfaction that He provides. And when we desire nothing else on earth besides Him, then we will never be dissatisfied, never be discontent. The more we grow in knowledge of Him, the more our hearts conform to this verse, and the more joyful and content and satisfied we are.
