We all want lasting peace and joy in our lives, but we often try to find them in the wrong places. Here is how you can have lasting peace and joy in your life!
We sometimes think that more money, or more achievement, or certain circumstances will give us peace and joy. These can certainly be helpful, but they are not permanent. True lasting peace and joy come from within.
How can we have this lasting peace and joy? The first step is to accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. He died for our sins, and we need to ask His forgiveness and ask Him into our hearts and accept his free gift of eternal life.
With Christ as our Savior, we can ask God to fill us with His Holy Spirit. The fruit of the Holy Spirit in our lives is love, and joy, and peace, and so much more! That fruit of the Holy Spirit is not dependent on outside circumstances that may change, but it is true and lasting.
The Apostle Paul experienced joy and peace in his life, although his circumstances changed often. You can have lasting peace and joy in your life through the indwelling power of God's Holy Spirit in your life.
