Word of the Day... May 30, 2013

You will go out with joy
and be led forth with peace. Isaiah 55:12

Sometimes it is hard to find joy when you are stressed out, filled with worry about how you are going to pay your bills or get a job. The worry about your children and their future can sometimes be so fearful.  How do we Christians learn to live with  these joy stealers beating at our doors?

We need to visit Jesus.  To spend special time each day with Jesus and I don’t mean just reading the Word.  I mean visiting Jesus and trusting that He is at work in our lives. Knowing that He is in complete control.  He knows what is happening in our lives.  He is there in the beginning and He will bring everything to a conclusion in our lives that will result in Him having the greater glory in the end. Believe me when He gets the greater glory we always end up with a big smile on our face!!

Once we begin to learn how to rest in Jesus, then and only then can we begin to relax in the peace of the Lord.  It is then that we trust that everything is in God’s hands.

The pressure may be intense.  There are all these little things that are just outside the door just waiting to steal our joy in the Lord. We all need to remember that nothing can rob us of our peace and joy in the Lord without our permission.

We need to make the decision to stand on our faith in the Lord and keep our joy and our peace. Hold on tight to Jesus and we can find rest in Him no matter what the world throws at us.  God bless you!!!
