Joy and peace



Romans 15:13 New English Translation (NET Bible)

13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe in him, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Good morning, it’s really cold here in Witbank and in Pullenshope even more so.  I believe it’s about 0o degrees outside.  As I walked up to my office the wind was blowing and I could feel the cold air through my hair and over my legs.

Sometimes life feels as cold as ice, freezing point seems to linger and you just struggle to get unfrozen.  I think of family that has passed away this week, peacefully and also suddenly.   

My mom’s fears are clear, I think she need reassurance and hope.  My sister seems to be disillusioned and disappointed.


Today I want to bring my family before the Lord praying humbly for a joy and peace for each person that is going through difficult times.

Prayer: 
Abba Father, the only hope we have is in You.  In our brokenness Lord we pray asking that You will fill each one of us today with all joy and peace in You Lord Jesus, so that we may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.  Amen

I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
