Hello dear, it’s another time to learn from God’s word.

Today I will be talking to you about Joy and Peace.

I know they are two familiar words, but let me help your memory by giving a simple definition.

Joy is a great feeling of happiness or pleasure; delight.

Peace on the other hand is a state of calmness and order.

These are two amazing things to have all at once.

It’s one of the prayers that can be found in the Bible. A prayer that we as God’s children be filled with Joy and Peace all at once and at the same time.

Let me show you what the Bible says;

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)

There is a lot said in this bible verse, let’s pick them one after the other.

God has the capacity to fill you and I with Joy and Peace, if it were not so, we won’t find the request in the bible.

Another thing this verse says is that being filled with Joy and Peace happens as a result of trusting in God. Believing in Jesus his son is a fundamental aspect of this process.

Then it says so that you may overflow with hope. The word overflow means to have something to the extent that it begins to pour out. Like filling a cup with water so much that it begins to pour out.

So the bible is saying it’s possible for you to overflow with hope, overflow with an assurance that God always has your back.

Let’s look at another translation.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you will abound in hope and overflow with confidence in His promises. —Romans 15:13 (AMP)

I like how this translation ends it by saying we overflow with the confidence of God’s promises for us.

As God’s child, what has he promised you? Be confident in what he has said and it will surely come to pass.
