In mathematics if one has two things one notices as a pattern, one can combine them as variables in an equation in order to solve for one variable (in this case how to find joy).

God's will, including work such as suffering for others (is greater than, not equal to) My will
God's will is the source of all good
Good is how I find joy
My will is not equal to enough for joy,
God's will is much more likely to bring joy than my will
