Now the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in Hope, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
Every single person needs hope in this fallen (and falling!) world. When you stop to face and process the circumstances and the threats of disaster & destruction to your body, mind, and spirit, it’s overwhelming! The threats are real. We have an adversary, the devil, prowling about as a roaring lion, seeking to devour us all (I Peter 5:8).
But be greatly encouraged today, my beloved sister and brother, for Romans 15:13 reveals that our continual weapon and almighty power we have against these forces is the Holy Spirit. He moves us to see and believe in the blood of our Messiah and all His promises to us. Today, seize His words and promises, and receive revelation imparted by Father’s Holy Spirit. Cling to and trust in the promises that He will ALWAYS shepherd us and keep us as we walk through these stormy seas that surround and threaten us. Believe and rest in His joy and peace beyond any circumstance you find yourself in, and abound in the true and secure hope that all is well in the arms of Abba Father, who reigns over heaven, earth, and YOU.
Then I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruit of your ground; nor will the vine in the field prove fruitless to you,” says the Lord of armies. “All the nations will call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land,” says the Lord of armies.” Malachi 3:11-12
