John 15:11 I have told you these things so that My joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled; do not be afraid.

Joy and peace is something God desires for all of His children. He doesn’t want us walking around in defeat, worried, carrying cares, and in fear. He personally had Jesus give us these things through His Word.

God healed our bodies (Isaiah 53:5) so that we can enjoy this life.
God provides all our needs (Phil. 4:19) so that we won’t lose our peace trying to figure out how we’re going to make it.
All of God’s promises are “Yes and Amen” (2 Cor. 1:20) so that we can have joy and peace knowing, in this lifetime, with faith, everything God said will come to pass.

Everything God did was so that we can have joy and peace. Shake off the spirit of depression, sadness, and heaviness and receive and maintain God’s joy and peace.
