How to have joy in yourself

New Testament: John 17.13

The world searches for joy constantly, but they cannot find it, because they do not look in the right place for it. Listen to Jesus as He prayed to the Father:

“But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves.”

– John 17.13
