What is biblical joy?

Galatians 5:22 (ESV)

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

Believers are called to rejoice in all circumstances, trusting that God is working things for their good (1 Thessalonians 5:16; 2 Corinthians 6:10).1 Biblical joy is about hope of life in God’s presence on account of the work of Christ that is unperturbed by sorrow and tribulation. It not a continual feeling of happiness.2
