Let The Prince of Peace and Joy Enter Your Heart (Morning)
TODAY’S FOOD FOR THE SOUL
Isaiah 55:12-13 Indeed you will go out with joy; you will be led along in peace; the mountains and hills will give a joyful shout before you, and all the trees in the field will clap their hands. Evergreens will grow in place of thorn bushes, firs will grow in place of nettles; they will be a monument to the Lord, a permanent reminder that will remain.
Her name is Julie. She’s an ordinary human resource department employee. What makes her different from her colleagues is her warm upbringing. A sincere smile always carved nicely on her calm and gentle face. She has the same atmosphere even after her husband was diagnosed with a rare disease. One day, her friend asks her, what’s your secret? Which she, calmly replies
“There is no secret. Because Jesus lives inside of me and I grow inside of Him, I could find inner peace and joy, regardless of the situation. He enables me to keep fighting even if my hope and strength are both seem lost”
There’s no secret. It’s visible to naked eyes. If we have a healthy relationship with God, our relationship with others would become healthy as well. The wrong mindset is when people started to think: if they acquire great wealth, fame, and influence. But because of this world’s impermanent nature, those things shall perish as well.
If that’s the case, how could we achieve and experience true Glory? By accepting let the Prince of Peace enter our hearts. Calamity may strike you hard, you may have ailments for life, or it seems that your life is getting nowhere, yes indeed. But Prince of Peace ensures us: I have your life at my hands, believe Me. If God Himself assures us, who are us doubting His words?
If there is a PRINCE OF PEACE in your heart, then His GLORY would fill your heart as well.
1. Do you yearn to experience His Glory and joy manifested in your life?
2. In your opinion, can you feel true happiness and joy in your heart? Do you feel His presence in your life?
3. What will you do to apply today’s rhema further into your life?
“Jesus, Prince of Peace, I am grateful because of Your kindness and benevolence, You gave me, Your one and beloved Son, to be my savior and my Messiah. I want to place Him in the highest place in my heart, and let His glory poured down. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.”
