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.

- Romans 15:13

Wow! Now that's a power-packed verse! Hope. It's vital to our very existence. Have you ever met anyone without hope? Very sad. Sadder still, have you ever been without hope? There have been a few times in my life when I've felt that there was no hope. But God always brings me back to His Word and the power in His Word.

This verse is so beautiful because it gives us the key to attaining hope - trusting in God. God is the God of hope and He will fill us with joy and peace when we trust in Him. Then, in that place of trusting Him, He will pour out so much hope into us by His Holy Spirit that we will overflow with hope! God even gives us the faith to be able to trust Him, so He's really put the whole burden on Himself. Isn't that just like Him? What a wonderful God we serve!

If you feel that you don't have any hope, please turn to the only One who can give it to you - Y'shua, Jesus the Messiah. Let Him show you the truth about Himself. Let Him fill you with His hope.
