Verse of the Day

Isaiah 55:12

You will live in joy and peace. The mountains and hills will burst into song, and the trees of the field will clap their hands!

Isaiah 55:12

Joy in Your Life

A life with God is a life of joy and peace. Outside of God’s will you will find turmoil, bitterness, depression, and fear. But inside the will of the Lord you will always experience joy and peace. At the moment of salvation, God places His joy and peace deep in your heart so that when you experience times of trouble, pain, or sorrow, joy and peace will be there. That is something that Christians have that is different from the world: his lasting joy and His permanent peace. All the world can offer is temporary and never satisfies.

Sometimes it can be hard to see His joy and peace in the midst of trials. Spend some uninterrupted time in the Word of God. His words will quiet your heart and give you a hope that only He can give. Spend some time today praying and crying out to Him. He will never leave you nor forsake you and will walk with you in this life.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
You are my joy. You are my peace. Without you, I have no joy and no peace. It can only be found in you, Oh Lord. May my life be a testimony of the work that you do. Amen.
