From the Heart of Abba
Beloved, there is a hope that lead to JOY. On the first “Christmas”, I came to earth as THE Hope of ALL nations.
I AM HOPE and JOY and PEACE and LOVE. My name was foretold to be Emmanuel.
Before the beginning of time, I was destined to come to earth, to walk among you as Emmanuel. Once you come to Me in new birth, I literally take up residence within your heart and am Emmanuel, God With You in a different sense.
There is no trial that is devoid of My presence with you. You may not be aware that I am with you but that does not change the fact.
There is nothing, not one thing, that can separate you from My love. I created you in love, for love, because I loved you. Nothing ever changes that fact. Before time began I planned for you with LOVE.
As you learn by trusting Me. to trust Me and to place your hope in the fact that I am Emmanuel and will never leave you nor forsake you, you will be able to know both PEACE and JOY no matter what is going on.
One definition of JOY is knowing someone is glad to be with you no matter what.
I AM EMMANUEL and I am GLAD to be with you even on your worse day.
You will know both PEACE and JOY when your heart remembers that EMMANUEL, who is aka LOVE is also PEACE and JOY.

Eph 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him.

God dwells in us: 1 Cor 3:16 Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?
