“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13)
This is the verse that showed up in my email devotion yesterday morning. I love when a song or a verse can provide so much encouragement to me!
Each of these phrases both individually and combined, really stood out to me:
“Source of hope” – God is THE source of all good things. How can I not be hopeful?!
“Completely with joy” – God has the power to fill up up all the way!
“…and peace” – Everything is better with the addition of peace. It’s an overwhelming calm that provides so much comfort.
“Overflow with confident hope” – God fills us up with hope so much that we begin to overflow, and He has inserted confidence too. Our hope has purpose!
“Power of the Holy Spirit” – God’s power is beyond our understanding, but His presence is real!
What a great way to start the week!
