God Knowsby Joyce Meyer - posted December 17, 2014
May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing . . . that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.
You cannot have true love, joy, hope, or peace without believing in God and His promises. According to today's scripture, joy and peace are found in believing. So when you lose your peace, check your believing.
Let your timing be in God's hands (see Ps. 31:15). You'll lose your peace if you try to make things happen out of God's timing. Avoid rea¬soning, and stop trying to figure out what God is doing in your life and trust Him. Stop thinking so much and start simply believing.
Believe God loves you. Believe God has a great plan for your life. Believe God always has your best interest in mind, and that He is work¬ing all things together for your good (see Rom. 8:28). You might as well just get in the flow and go with God. Getting frustrated is not going to make God change His mind.
I have been through a lot of difficult things and have come to know through experience that God is faithful and worrying does no good. We don't have to understand everything that occurs in our lives, because God does understand them and He is in control. You can choose to believe in God and His promises, or to continue in worry and reason¬ing. But if you choose to believe, your joy and peace will be abundant.
Love God Today: "Lord, I believe that you know all things and you are in control, so help me be comfortable, 'not knowing.' "
Praise God for all things, and he will give us the desires of our hearts!
