Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 NKJV
What is Hope? The definition of hope is,a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen. The biblical translation of the word is a little stronger, it is the joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation. Jesus Christ is the God of hope, He is the foundation of our faith and His power can become our power through the almighty presence of the Holy Spirit. Do you believe this with all of your heart? Many times it becomes difficult for us to depend on God in areas where we excel. We may see things everyday and be able to do things with ease that others struggle with; consequently, when it comes time for us to depend on God in this area we have a major struggle because we understand things so well. I believe this is why so many doctors struggle with divine healing. They simply cannot believe that God heals because of their knowledge and understanding. I know not all are this way many doctors are Christians with a strong faith in Christ and a complete understanding that He so often heals and does things that cannot be explained. Many scientist struggle with the miracles of God because their knowledge interferes with their faith. The abilities of the doctor are gifts from God. The knowledge of the scientist is a gift from God. Pray today as you face your difficulty that Jesus Christ will fill you with the joy and the peace He speaks of in Romans 15:13. This scripture says abound in hope, the word abound means to exist in large numbers or amounts. This can only happen by the power of the Holy Spirit. Pray today that the power of the Holy Spirit inside you will empower you to live full of Hope, full of peace, full of joy knowing that the mighty hand of God will take care of you. Whatever you face, He faces. Whatever mountain you have to climb, He has to climb. Whatever binds you, He will loose. Let go and let God take care of you as only He can. Find His peace, embrace His love, Fear Not, because is mighty and He is LORD. Call on Him today. Trust Him today. Abound in His Hope today!
