May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Today’s verse is a short and sweet one. The apostle Paul is writing to the Romans and he gives them instructions on how to treat one another, Jews and Gentiles alike. And he ends this section of his letter with a benediction of hope, praying that God will fill his readers with joy and peace through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Overflow with Hope
I think we would all like to overflow with hope. To feel the joy and peace that comes from knowing that all is well when we are in the middle of God’s will. And more than just knowing, it’s believing that truth too. Because we can know it intellectually but if we don’t believe it at a heart level, it’s just words.
Today, I hope you are overflowing with hope. That the presence of the Lord and His Spirit are palpable in your life. I pray you are living with joy and peace as you trust in Him. And that the power of the Spirit is at work in you.
Perhaps you’ll pray the same for me?
