“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13, (NIV)
Peace and joy are linked to Christmas because they come from Christ. Faith in our Lord Jesus opens our hearts to receive these precious treasures. Think about it; what area of your life is low in joy and peace? If you are like me, I bet you discovered a realm where your faith is not focused on Him. Relying on anything or anyone else can not bring lasting joy and peace.
Don’t focus on trying to grasp peace or joy. Focus on the God of hope—His incomparable love for you, His unlimited power, infinite wisdom, and perfect righteousness.
Our Christmas prayer for you is that God would grant you the grace to trust Him. Thank you for being a part of ministering faith and hope to others. Larry and I thank God for you.
