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 NIV
God is the Author and Giver of grace. He fills us by His greatness and reminds us to remember why Jesus is our hope. He opens the door for us to discover His peace and cradles us in calm, when we need to be reminded to be faithful.
Sometimes we feel hopeless. We forget to put our trust in the One who knows what we need. But 1 Peter 5: 10 says, And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
As we go through the seasons of our lives, we will experience days that bring us welcomed joy. And we will discover days that are difficult. But God will remind us how to keep going when we fear. He will open our hearts for PEACE from Jesus, and give us relief from surrender to Him. He will place HOPE in our hearts as we find strength from His holiness and feel the calm of His everlasting love.
Peace will not flow in our hearts unless we believe in Christ and faithfully trust. The Bible says, “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Isaiah 26 We must remember to remain faithful and patiently wait... God will work for the good in the timing of His will. He will manage our days.
God has the power to DO what we cannot! He will allow HOPE to reach us as we give Him the glory! Peace will replace our doubt and fear. And HOPE will abound for today and tomorrow. God will provide EVERYTHING we need. We must put our trust in the One who saves and never forget why HE WILL handle EVERY single thing.
