May the God of hope.
And right there I stopped as I was reading Romans 15:13 to open my New Post window because I had to write to us.
God of hope.
He is the only God in whom is hope. He is the only God period. But you and I have lived long enough and have viewed enough media that we have seen other little g gods and in them is no hope.
How could you and I be so blessed to KNOW this God of hope? Amazing privilege!
And so today. May the God of hope fill YOU (and me) with all joy and peace (how?) as you (and I) believe in Him (why?) so that you (and I) may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (source)
Overflow with hope!
I wonder what that would look like in me? What does it look like in you?
ABBA, make it so today. HOLY SPIRIT, move us, inspire us, lead us to trust You so the joy of Yeshua (Jesus) will overflow in us, in our homes, in our work places, in heavy traffic, in long lines, with tired cashiers, willfully turned wrong children, media stories, taxes, healthcare and all other experiences and places we travel this day.
13 May God, the source of hope, fill you completely with joy and shalom as you continue trusting, so that by the power of the Ruach HaKodesh you may overflow with hope. via Romans 15:13 HCSB;CJB – Now may the God of hope fill you with – Bible Gateway. Romans 15:13 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
