Verse of the Day

Romans 15:13

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13

The God of Hope

God is our source of hope. Hope can only come from Him. Sure we can hope for temporary things: hope for a raise in our jobs, hope that something good will happen, hope that we’ll get to see someone we haven’t seen in a long time. But true hope that lasts only comes from Him. He is the source of that hope. When we trust in Him, the God of hope, he will fill us with his joy and peace. We will experience the joy He has placed in our hearts, and the peace that passes all understanding because He lives inside of us. Not only that, we will overflow with confident hope through his power! The Holy Spirit is living and active inside of us, constantly giving us this hope through His power. We must choose to be filled with His joy, peace, and hope as we walk throughout every day.

Are you living in His joy? Do you walk through your days choosing to be joyful and see the good? Are you living in His peace? Do you allow His peace to wash over you in difficult situations or when you’re feeling defeated? Are you living with His hope? Do you hope for HIm and who He is? Pray today and ask the Holy Spirit to stir these things up inside of you.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear God,
I know that you sent me the Holy Spirit to live and breathe inside of me. May I access your joy, peace, and hope and know that your Spirit will always work in me when I’m pursuing you. Amen
