Joy and Peace

[Rom 15:13 NKJV] 13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Just a short thought today, to wish you joy and peace. The world in which we live knows so little of joy or peace. The dissatisfaction that is in most lives robs us joy and peace. People are seeking after wealth, recognition, fame, and a variety of other things. Most of which even when they are obtained do not bring joy or peace. The only way true peace or joy comes into our hearts is through establishing a relationship with our God and Creator. It is the God of hope who fills us with joy and peace. 

Without Him we will never find what our hearts truly desire. It is only through our Savior Jesus Christ that we can have joy and peace in our lives. The scripture declares that He is the "way, the truth and the life…". It is only through Him that we can have the closeness to  God that gives us joy and peace.

[Jhn 14:6 KJV] 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

If you are struggling with dissatisfaction in your life, follow the commands of the Bible to make Jesus your Lord and Savior! Then you will replace your discontentment with joy and peace. 

[Phl 4:7 KJV] 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

It is as Christ Jesus is alive in our hearts that we truly know the peace of God. A peace comes into us that passes all understanding.

In that peace we find joy that is as much beyond our ability to understand as is His peace.

[1Pe 1:8 KJV] 8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see [him] not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

True joy and peace only come through forgiveness and relationship with God through Jesus Christ!
