Romans 15:13

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.


Uncertainty, worry and sometimes just everyday life is enough for the devil to bring us down and fill our heads with doubt. But, God, he is the God of hope. We can keep our eyes on Jesus and know that he has gone before us. He says to enjoy life and have it in abundance (John10:10) . You cannot enjoy life unless you have hope. The more hope you have, the more joy you’ll have, and the more peace you’ll have as you trust in him.



Dear God, you know how hard it is sometimes to let go of our worries and fears. We cause so much pain for ourselves, yet you stand ready to shoulder our burdens as we put our trust in you. Keep our eyes fixed on you, not on our troubles. By the power of your Holy Spirit, fill us with hope, for you are greater than our worries. We praise you in Christ our Lord. Amen.
