“So there was great joy in that city.” Acts of the Apostles 8:8 NLT http://bible.com/116/act.8.8.NLT

Great joy is an incomparable, inexplicable and unqualifiable happiness. Our text reveals this was the state of the Samaritans through the ministry of Phillip.

Beloved, great joy is the product of the Holy Spirit out of the raw material of faith. Faith is the product of the received and believed Word. The received and believed Word is the product of the raw material of the proclaimed Word. There will always be demonically induced circumstances and situations in your life that’ll work against your experiencing great joy. Until you give the Holy Spirit the raw material of your faith, these demons will not be overcome. Until the demons are overcome the situations will not give in or give way. Until they give in, inexplicable great joy will always elude you, because you can’t experience great joy in their midst!

Grace upon grace!
