Romans 8:31-32

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

When things get tough, we can take assurance that God is on our side. Nothing in life is to hard for God.  When things are tough on for us, remember God is there to help us. Any thing is possible with the help of God.

Message 70: 9-10

Let all watch and pray, for the trials will come to all. Mankind must come all the way. The Lord has been and will be with his people by his Spirit, and his peace shall long linger with the faithful until they become the jewels of God.

We will all have our trials and tribulations, but with the help of the Lord we can get through them. If we stay faithful we will become the jewels of the Lord and his peace will flow over us. God never leaves us, but through faithfulness we allow his peace and love to touch us.

2 Timothy 2:22-26

Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

We need to put the ways of man behind us when we turn to the Lord. We must try to have the qualities that Christ wants us to have. These include but are not limited to gentleness, patience, righteousness, faith, charity, peace and meekness. This must be our main focus, not the ways of the world.

Message 93:6

Be harsh with no one. Be not moved by confusion nor emotion, if it doth not calm the soul.

Love is calming. The peace that the Lord sends also is calming. There is a peace and calmness about everything that the Lord does. He does not do things by confusion or hysteria.

Message 70:3

Moreover the Lord has heard the prayers of this assembly and has answered peace—herein is your joy in obedience and in humility: for joy comes by obedience and peace in much assurance.

With our obedience to the Lord we will be blessed with joy and peace. This happens when the Lord is pleased with us. It helps us stay on the correct path. We have to make sure we are following the true words of God and his true plan.

Message 57:12

The Lord will comfort all that come unto him, therefore be not troubled but lift up and rejoice, even all. Fail not lest the Lord turn to others; be overcomers in all things for Satan seeks to set thee at variance one with another. Let it not be so.

The Lord will be there for us. We are supposed to love each other and treat each other with respect. Satan tries to work into our lives bitter contention that will tear us apart and away from God. Don’t let this happen to you. Let us praise the Lord and the peace that he brings.

Luke 11:27-28

And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

There is no one more special in the eyes of the Lord then a follower of Christ. The people who follow all of the teachings of Christ are a blessed people who’s lives are full of love and peace. Let us try to be one of those followers.

Message 87:21

Be at peace. I leave a blessing in this place upon all that hear my words. I will continue to come until the work is finished.

Let us be assured that John will come again.  He promised he would come until the work is finished. We can not worry about the future of the Church or of God’s plan.  God has all things under control. Let us be filled with the peace that all things are in God’s hands.

Great shall be the joy in the hearts of men for they will hear the Lord’s words and humble themselves before him. The law of the Lord shall be written in each heart and all men will obey his will.

When we come to the Lord, there will be great joy in our heart and life.  We will be blessed by his spirit in our day to day lives that will give us peace and reassurance. God will always send us his joy and peace if we follow his will and are humble before him.
