Morning Devotion: Questions and Answers

Question: Can I have joy and peace in this world? Answer: Absolutely, Yes.

With this world following the cunning of man and the rule rather than the law, we can have hope and peace in this world.

The following was a song sung by Israel in the millennium period. Israel had rejected Christ Jesus as her Messiah and at the return of Christ she realizes He is the one whom they pierced, the one whom they hung on the cross. They realized the Lord, all along, was their peace and their joy.

Isaiah 26:3  Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. 4  Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

The Lord can be your peace and joy.

Jesus said in John 14:27  “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

John 16:33  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

John 15:11  These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

1 Peter 1:6  Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: 7  That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 8  Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: 9  Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

It starts with trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Proverbs 3:5  Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 7  Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. 8  It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

As we have read, God promises to give us joy and peace. The promises of God are without change. He will do as He said. What a thrill to know God promised us peace and joy.

Do you have it?

The choice is still yours,
