Power to Hope
”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." - Romans 15:13
In the darkness of this world before Christ's second coming, it is so easy to lose hope. You might think that you'll be stuck in uncertainty with no end. You might feel alone. Maybe you have several lows in different areas of your life happening all at once. Whatever it may be (now, later, or even in the past), God can not just provide hope. But by the power of the Holy Spirit, we can overflow with hope, and be filled with joy and peace if we trust in Him. Let us offer thanksgiving to our Lord!
"For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the Jews on behalf of God’s truth, so that the promises made to the patriarchs might be confirmed and, moreover, that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written:“Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles; I will sing the praises of your name.” Again, it says,“Rejoice, you Gentiles, with his people.” And again, “Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles; let all the peoples extol him.”And again, Isaiah says,“The Root of Jesse will spring up, one who will arise to rule over the nations; in him the Gentiles will hope." - Romans 15:8-12
