for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
To those whose joy has grown dim and whose peace seems out of reach, God asks:
‘Where are you? What is it in your life that has separated you from My joy? What is it that causes you to turn away from Me?
Look and see. Come to Me and let us examine this together. Come to Me and repent, that you may be restored, that My joy may be complete in you and that you may know My peace that surpasses all understanding.’
Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord
