Romans 15: 13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
We all need hope and we all need joy and we need peace in believing! Where there is hope, faith abounds! Where there is no hope there is no peace or joy. God is the only one who can give you true joy and peace in believing. How are you feeling today, are you filled with joy and hope? Remember; there is hope because we serve the God of Hope.
God wants to fill you with hope and joy and peace believing that He has it all worked out for you and His plan for your future is brighter than anything you can imagine. What seems gloomy and frustrating now will pass, we all face those crazy seasons that feel like forever and can seem overwhelming when we try to make it on our own. God never leaves you in the same season of life beyond His purpose.
Don’t allow Satan to rob you of your joy and peace today! He is so full of lies and his goal is to rob you of all of the hope, joy and peace God has in store for you. He is a thief and a liar! When he comes at you with his lies, trying to remove any tidbit of hope you have left, stop him at the gates of your mind and refuse to listen. You have a choice to belief his lies or believe that the God of hope wants to bring joy and peace and more faith into your home. Hold onto Jeremiah 29:11 where it says, “for I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for good and not for evil to give you a future and a hope.” And then in 2 Timothy 1: 7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” God doesn’t want you fearful of your future, He wants you to be confident that all that you are facing and will face He can handle, He has a plan. Nothing takes Him by surprise and He will give you the strength and resources you need to get to the other side.
Ask God today to fill you with His Joy and Peace believing so you can abound in Hope! He loves you so much and you will accomplish so much more if you are not worrying about your day. I saw a quote the other day that said, “Worry is a misuse of your imagination”, I would have to say that is very well said! Hold on to the God of Hope today, reject Satan’s lies and allow God’s peace and joy to fill your home!
