Righteousness, peace and joy. These are some of the things you seek. Your heart cries out for these truths to be a deeper part of your life. I tell you that your prayers have not fallen on deaf ears, for I the Lord have come to bring these three more fully into your life. ‘How?’ you ask…. ‘I want to know and feel these three’.
Yet, righteousness, peace and joy are not emotions or feelings, they are a state of being that flows from being in the healed relationships that I am building into your life.
Connect and reconnect not only with me but with those who I have deliberately brought into your life. I have provided them for your journey to bless and strengthen you. When two, three, four or more flow together, declarations of righteousness, peace and joy can be built into your life. Your cry for these three will be found not only in intimacy with me but in the fellowship of those believers I have brought into your life.
All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Counsellor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
2 Timothy 2:22
… pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
