Romans 15:13 …...May the God of your hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing
As a believer, your joy and peace are not based on doing and achieving, but on believing. Joy and peace come as a result of building your relationship with the lord.
Psalm 16:11 tells you that in His presence is fullness of joy. If you have received Jesus as your Savior and Lord, He - the Prince of Peace – lives inside you (see John 14:23; 1 John 4:12-15). You experience peace in the Lord's presence.
Joy and peace come from knowing, believing, and trusting in the Lord with simple childlike faith. So just believe… (see 1 Samuel 30:1-20). Be filled with an overflowing hope that cascades into every area of your life.
Experience God's Presence Tonight
Isaiah 26:9………my soul yearns for you [O Lord] in the night
Have you ever noticed that in the quiet darkness of night there seems to be something special about the presence of God?
He is always with you, even during the daytime, and you can talk to Him anytime, even when you are busy. But during the day there are many distractions that keep you from focusing on His presence for an extended period of time. And by the end of the day, you have often experienced problems and frustrations that can cause you to feel lonely and needy. It is then that you can finally give time and attention to the one who is the answer to your needs.
When you yearn for God in the night, seek Him earnestly, and you will find He will minister to you in a special way. He will provide answers to any problems you may have, and He will give you peace and rest.
