Condition for the Joy of the Lord: in order for everyone to obtain the joy of the Lord, there is a condition to fulfill and sacrifice to make. And what are the conditions; the conditions are that He that covereth his sin shall not prosper but he that confess and forsake shall obtain mercy. Here it tells us that nothing goes for nothing as the Lord himself paid the price for sins we also need to abstain from our sins to conform to the price paid for our sins in order for us to constantly receive his joy we need to abstain from our sins, confess and forsake them

Basis of Joy of the Lord: Joy of the Lord comes when you fear God, do his will, testify him, seeking his face and drawing nearer to him. Owning to hardship or challenges of life one may ask is there any joy in this life of evil generation and perilous time which we are into, the answer is yes to those that fear God. His words said the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. A good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever. When you have wisdom of God you can deal with any challenges of life; as in the life of Solomon, who with the wisdom of God made good decision when it comes to Judge Israelite in time of conflict when he was a king. As God is source of wisdom to everyone even unto Solomon, that is why he says in THE LETTER OF JAMES 1:17 “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. This bible verse gives joy in the sense that, it tells us that, it’s God alone can give good and perfect gift so we should only hope on him. What we only need to do is deliberately ask him and he will give us. He said in JAMES 1:5 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” 2 Chronicles 1:7 “In the night did God appear unto Solomon, and said unto him, ask what I shall give thee. Then in Bible verse of this Chronicles 1:10 Solomon replied God what he want him to do for him. Here he said “Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people: for can who judge this thy people, that is so great?”

For the Joy of Lord he granted Solomon his request: Because Solomon knowingly asked God for wisdom and knowledge to Judge Israelite who is great to judge. And the joy of the Lord full for this request and Lord said in 2 Chronicles 1:11 And God said to Solomon,  because this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king: and in verse 12, God said “Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like. Here God teaches us that when we asking in prayer we should not ask selfishly, as Solomon did not ask pertained to himself, then the Lord in his joy will multiply an answers to prayers.
