Good News of Great Joy

Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people (Luke 2:10)


Your prayers have been heard! God’s promises will be fulfilled at the proper time. The word of God will never fail! The day is coming when you will say “How kind the Lord Is! The Lord has done this for me.” You have nothing to fear, the Lord is with you! The Lord’s hand is upon you! Exchange your fear for peace and joy – The Savior – yes the only one who can deliver you from your sin, the Messiah, was born in Bethlehem.There is no need to worry – He is risen from the dead!

Lay at the foot of the cross your past,your shattered dreams, your wounded heart and broken toys. Allow Christ to fashion you into the person he created you to be. Surrender yourself-centeredness your pride, your dreams, your hopes and fears to the Lord of the universe and you will find peace and joy. Exchange your self-pity, regret, guilt, remorse, resentments and frustrations for glorifying and praising God. Then you will know the peace of God which surpasses all understanding.

Hallelujah! He is Lord in each and every situation that you find yourself in today. He is Lord wherever you go. If you rise on the wings of the dawn, or settle on the far side of the sea God’s hand will guide you, and his right hand will hold you fast [1]. Don’t allow yourself to be cheated out of peace and joy by planning and preparing for every contingency so that you cannot hear the baby born in Bethlehem say to you “I know the plans I have for you … plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope [2]. Firmly and confidently place your future where it belongs in the hands of your Savior and Lord.

Merry Christmas!
