Joy and Peace – Hope Stream Radio
This week on Word of God Speak I looked at three scriptures in review. One about joy and peace, kept surrounding me. Joy and peace. Lovely words. I called my podcast How God’s Word Can Fill You and Overflow to Others.
You can listen to my podcast at Hope Stream Radio. Or if you want to read instead of listen, my show notes can be found below.
Here are my show notes for Joy and Peace:
As I study God’s Word and work on memorizing verses I am astounded how God uses this to bless others. This morning I came across a fellow believer who felt weighed down in grief. One of my memorized verses came to mind. I wrote her to give her God’s Word:
From Romans 15:13
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.
This became a healing balm to her troubled spirit and a starting point for recovery. That’s one little verse. Such a powerful impact with God behind it.
Can you picture this verse? As we read His Word and pray, God pours out joy and peace into our hearts. Then that joy and peace continue to fill us, and we overflow so others may see God in us. The Holy Spirit works in our lives, for us and for others.
God is able to work in our lives if we allow Him to. (tweet this)
Listen to Philippians 2:13
For it is God who works in you to will and act in order to fulfill His good purpose.
I see God working in my life. I study the scriptures; He fills me; He sends me to those in need; He fills them with the Scriptures and they overflow. Others are filled.
Or I stumble; He sends His Word from others who read the scriptures; I take them to my heart; I heal; I overflow and give to others.
Is God calling you? What have you learned from His Word this week? I would love if you shared your journey with God with me. Drop over to janiscox.com and send me a note.
Two songs spoke powerfully to me in church this Sunday. The words come from the Scriptures:
In Christ Alone
by Natalie Grant
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.
Here is the music for In Christ Alone by In Christ Alone…Passion 2013..Singer : Kristian Stanfill
This is the way we sang it on Sunday. Even with the oh oh ohs.
from Hill song
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly trust in Jesus’ name.
Here is the music for Christ Alone Cornerstone by Hillsong
We can hear God Speak if we listen to His Word. If you haven’t asked Him to reveal His Word to you – first open your Bible, then pray for God to open His Word to you. Then read and listen. It’s that simple.
May I pray for you and me?
Lord, in all we do, say and think, in all our lives, we ask you to fill us with Your hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. As we open our hearts to you, worship You and read Your Word, may we not only be filled but may we overflow with Your hope so others may come to know You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Until next week, may Christ be Your Cornerstone. May you have a week filled with His love, mercy and power. May you open His Word and let Him speak to you.
