Word of the Day.. November 6,2012

Faith Brings Joy

Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. 
Romans 5:1-5

I love this scripture because it shows us how we can have peace in our daily lives.  Before we became Christians we were at war with God.  We rebelled against the laws of the Lord because we felt they were too restrictive.  We bought into the lies of Satan because he made sin seem so attractive to us.  He blinded us to the fact that sin was destroying us.  So we fought against the Lord,  not realizing He was trying to save us.  We knew that we were at war, but we didn't know we were fighting against God.

Then Jesus told us, "Come to Me and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28).  It is when we surrender to Him and accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, that we realize that the war is finally over.  I am no longer fighting against God.  Then we are so blessed by that peace that He gives us.  That peace that passes all understanding!!!  There is such rest knowing that God is on my side!!!  Have a wonderful day walking in the light of Jesus!!!  God bless you!!! :):)
