1. God infuses every moment of life with reasons for joy.

Do not be conformed to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. – Romans 12:1-2 (ESV)

As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today. – Genesis 50:20 (ESV)

2. God invites us to experience his peace in every moment of life.

1. He invites us to come to Him in everything

2. He invites us to bring him our requests

3. He invites us to come with thanksgiving.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, 7 casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:6-7 (ESV)

If you believe that God is great — that he is all-powerful, that he is sovereign, that he is in control, that he is majestic, that he burns with holy fire — then you will not fear. Or rather you will have only one fear: the fear of the LORD. What else could you fear? What rivals are there to God‘s power? Who might out-manoeuvre God? Who might overcome God? He is in complete control. – Tim Chester

4. He invites us to experience his supernatural peace.

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14 For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility 15 by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, 16 and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. 17 And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. 18 For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. – Ephesians 2:13-18 (ESV)
