Filled with Peace and Joy in Every Tribe, Tongue, and Nation - February 12, 2024


Morning by Morning, February 12 - Filled with Peace and Joy in Every Tribe, Tongue, and Nation


Good morning, Lord Jesus. I speak out Your name and listen for Your voice to begin my day embraced by my Father, centered in Christ, and filled with Your Holy Spirit. ...


After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!’ All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying:


“‘Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom,

Thanksgiving and honor and power and might,

Be to our God forever and ever.



“Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, ‘Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?’


“And I said to him, ‘Sir, you know.’


“So he said to me, ‘These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes’” (Revelation 7:9-17).


What a thrill to know that when we all get to heaven we see our brothers and sisters from around the world and throughout the ages from every tongue and tribe and nation! All will be pure and spotless through the blood of the Lamb. All will be filled with joy and worship forever and ever with no more sorrow or sadness, no more hunger or thirst, no more pain or persecution. No more tears but only joy and peace in the Presence of Jesus!


Lord, fill our hearts with that peace and joy now! Even in the midst of whatever we go through, remind us of Your vision and the fulfillment of our hope in You. “Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us” (Romans 5:5).


As You encouraged the first generation of Your disciples, You continue to encourage every generation of Your disciples:


“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world!” (John 16:33)


For these three weeks, You’ve sent me among the people and tribes in the nation of India. On Saturday I spoke words of encouragement among many pastors who serve You among the tribal people in the hills along the eastern coast of India. Many face persecution for their faith every day, enduring the tribulation of their circumstances every day. But their faith is strong and their hope is alive! I feel I received from them so much more that I was able to give -- but all was from You, from Your Spirit abiding in every one of us.


Fill us all each day -- in our generation and every generation to come -- with strong faith and living hope, keeping our eyes on You and our hearts lifted up to You. Fill us now with a measure of the ultimate peace and joy we eternally have in You! In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Be encouraged today. In the love of Jesus, Tommy Hays

My friend, may you be filled up and overflowing with the peace and joy you eternally have in Jesus, as you through whatever you endure in the world, being of good cheer no matter what, with your eyes on Jesus, in Jesus' name. God bless you, my friend! And you have a great day!
