Peace to you all, family!!!!!!! That is our Father’s heart for each one of us as we begin this day! When we have an intimate relationship with the Lord and we are placing our trust in Him, there are three things that result in that beyond salvation and the filling of His Holy Spirit:
- We have joy
- We have peace
- We have fruit of the Spirit
Joy is the excited heart that finds delight in Jesus and with it comes peace which is our souls resting in Him. Both come from faith that God is for us and with us and we can never be snatched from His hand. I love this verse:
“Therefore since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.”
Our Father is beyond all of this life and yet right here in the midst of it with us to guide us in light, reassure us of His victory for us and to give us His peace. With that, we can have joy today and with His Spirit working in us, He will enable us to walk in ways that will bear fruit and bring Him glory!!! Let’s rest in Him in peace with what we have to do this day, share this good news with others and let us worship Him for who He is!!! He gets us, is for us and we can help others understand that too!!! Peace, joy and love to you all!!!
