And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Romans 5:5 NLT
God uses situations to show us why we need Him. If every day were perfect, we would go about our business and forget how it feels to be guided by the power of His love.
“Troubles are the tools by which God fashions us for better things.” He never promised we would be without it. When the future is unclear, He opens our hearts in truth and reminds us who handles every single thing. He helps us remember we don’t have to figure out life on our own.
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” What a good reminder to trust in the guidance of God as we journey with Jesus!
God demonstrates the love of His greatness and nurtures the heart of our faith. As we’re rooted in the depth of His holiness, He removes doubt and helps us find strength where HOPE is found. Jesus has earned ALL of our love! He is deserving of so much more than the mere morsels we give. The One who died in our place, rose from the tomb! He will provide what will never be found on our own.
Christ will ready us for the week ahead as we put our HOPE in Him. We will find strength for weakness and welcome courage to face what will happen next. If we put our faith in the One who will bring peace; surely, we will find rest in Him.
In Christ alone our HOPE is found! We must “rejoice in HOPE, be patient in tribulation and be constant in prayer.” Read Romans 12:12 God is HERE and HE loves us. May the God who gives HOPE fill you with His greatness. May you have perfect peace as you trust in Him. May the power of the Holy Spirit fill you with HOPE that we need. And may you always remember; NOTHING is impossible for God!
Dear God, thank you for HOPE that sets the stage for what’s to come. We will TRUST in You and welcome PEACE from the Holy Spirit. We will never forget how lucky we are to be loved by YOU. Thank you for blessing us with Your presence in our lives. We will remain faithful and put our HOPE in Jesus. Thank you, Lord! Thank you! Amen
