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 NLT
As we prepare to say goodbye to a year that brought challenge and despair, it’s important to remember God remains constant even in the changes of our lives. He is the source of HOPE. The difficulty of our circumstances has not affected the faithfulness of His unfailing love.
Life as we know it has changed. But in the sadness of worry, fear and doubt, God has drawn us closer to the power of His greatness. He has revealed His will in many ways and given us the ability to learn how to TRUST.
Trust welcomes PEACE. It sets the stage for STRENGTH to come. It opens hearts for courage and reminds us we are loved. God provides many blessings. He helps us experience gratitude, even when worry tries to steal our calm.
The Bible says, “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” HOPE is something we need. When the future is unclear, God will open our eyes and reveal His will when the timing is right. He will humble us. Then, when we’re ready to discover what happens next, He will help us remember who is handling our days.
God will nurture passion and purpose for what’s to come. He will reveal the power of His plan. What we’ve lived will make us stronger! He will guide and provide for our days and nurture us with the presence of His love.
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
Dear God, thank you for PEACE and HOPE for what’s to come. We will TRUST in You and never forget how lucky we are to be held by Your holiness. Thank you for blessing us with Your presence. As we wait for better days to come, we will remain faithful. We will praise You in all circumstances and never forget who has a plan for our days. Thank you, Lord! We are grateful! Amen
