TUESDAY 22ND AUGUST 2017.
The kingdom of God is a realm of righteousness, joy, and peace that the Holy Spirit supplies. We have a modest invitation to manifest the joy and peace that is exclusively offered in the kingdom of God! What a wonderful privilege!
In this kingdom, you receive God's imputed righteousness, unexplainable joy and unending peace that the world cannot understand. Joy goes beyond your circumstances. It's a strong, bright side of assurance and hope that manifests itself in excitement or exuberance from the inside of you. Peace, on the other hand, is a state of spiritual well-being, an inner flowing of serenity that convinces you of God's presence in a specific situation. Joy and peace proceed from the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. (Gal. 5:22)
Living in God's kingdom is neither about the things you fail to do nor things you do wrong. Rather it is about being made right with God and being filled with the Spirit.
Note that in this kingdom, certain things will attempt to attack your joy and peace perpetually. Your sins of the past, the accuser of brethren and our world systems will try to exterminate your joy and extinguish your peace. They will remind you how sinful you were in the past. Never give in to their intrigues because you have been made right with God.
Go out today and manifest the joy and peace of the kingdom, for unto this you have been called!
ACTION: Decide to allow the righteousness, peace, and joy of the kingdom of God to manifest through you from today onward.
