"Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full".
(John 16:24 KJV)
"Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost."
(Romans 15:13 KJV)
Gentle, warming joy that brings peace and acceptance of Our Awesome God is found when one focuses on Him in faith, love and belief. This gentle joy is usually found when one is young and innocent of our evil world or has matured in their faith and belief to the point where they realize a small part of the massive love God has for us. This realization often comes while praying to our Lord. Because while praying we need to "let go" and exercise our faith and belief in Him while turning our problems over to Him knowing He loves us more than anyone else can (John 3:16). He will handle each problem in the best way. Praise God!
Take 10 minutes, at least, to focus on nothing but Our Awesome God and pray, asking Him to forgive any sins that you need to have forgiven (1 John 1:9). He is waiting for you to ask in belief in Him and realize that what God wants is what is best for you and me. He can and will do the impossible if you ask Him and it is within His will! Pray today and do it earnestly, believing He will answer you. Your joy will shine on your face! Your whole body will proclaim that you are joyful because you have God and your lifestyle will shine (Galatians 4:6). Pray!!
To obtain and keep this gentle warming joy, you need to pray more than 15 minutes a day. So find that extra time and pray to Our Awesome God for more joy that will last longer. Praying can even be addicting and, when praying is a must every time before a decision is made, the gentle peaceful joy stays with you longer. Find the time or make the time to pray! Be a happier Christian. This gentle, warming joy that brings peace and acceptance of Our Awesome God is one you will want to feel all the time.
Come join us as we encourage our people and work in Our Awesome God's vineyard, telling others about His story, Jesus Christ's Salvation, and our eternal home with Him, trying to help them to understand Our Creator better.
