The peace of God and the joy of God by Joyce Meyer

I want you to look at what God said to Abraham. vs. 14: The Lord said to Abram after lot had left him, lift up now your eyes and look from the place where you are — in other words, stop looking where you’re at — and look north, south, east, and west; vs. 15: For all the land which you see I will give to you and to your posterity forever. So I just have to say to you: What can you see in the spirit for yourself? You may not see it with your natural eyes, but what do you see in the ground of your heart? Do you feel hopeless or do you believe there’s hope? Can God change your finances?

Can God change your kids? Can God change your marriage? Can God change you? Get your eyes off the way it’s always been and the way it is right now and look at how it can be. I know some people think, “I get tired of all this happy preaching!” “Happy-clappy, happy-sappy Christians. I just get tired of all this faith and believe and talk positive and all this stuff.” Well, you know what? What else are you going to do? What I’m telling you, you can enjoy your life if you never get what you want. You can enjoy your life if you never get what you want.

I can’t promise you that what you want is going to happen in your life, but I can promise you that Fod will do what’s best for you. I am not going to be sad and I am not going to be frustrated and miserable. I am not going to go around being guilty and condemned all the time! I have been given the kingdom of God and I’m going to live in it!

Many years ago I finally reached a point in my life where I was really, really tired of being controlled by my circumstances. I wanted to have stability. I wanted to enjoy the peace of God and the joy of God at all times, not just when my circumstances were going right and I believe that if we learn how to do that, then our circumstances won’t bother us nearly as much.
