Word for Today
The Word (45)-the Word is full of PEACE.
“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 14:27).
The Word of God is full of peace and joy. He is the Prince of peace.
In the presence of God is fullness of joy. We all know that nobody can give out what he does not have. Peace, joy & tranquility are the nature of the Word.
The truth is that the type of peace & joy you get from the Word, you can never get them from this world. No amount of wealth, qualifications, titles, power etc can give you anything close to the peace & joy in the Word.
Peace & joy from the Word is the best legacy you can bequeath your children even before education. The word of God is the word of truth. It’s the greatest gift you can give to your family or anyone you truly love.
Repetition in saying this is okay for me, more so as today is special to me: “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth” (3John 4). Henceforth, do NOT compromise on the truth. Say NO to lies and semblance of lies such as deliberately distorting information. Encourage your family and those around you to do the same. It’s well with you in Jesus name.
“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (Psalm 16:11).
Father, please let peace & joy be multiplied in the lives of everyone who is sincerely committed to your Word all over the world in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
