Lunch Bite

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” (Romans 15:13, ESV)

Well it’s Friday. You are close to the end of the week and maybe a time of rest. One of the most amazing gifts of God is the gift of hope. I said in an earlier lunch bite that hope is the energy drink of life. With it we can endure anything and without hope life fades quickly.

The Holy Spirit speaks through Paul in Romans that God is the only source for hope and in this hope we can have peace and rest and in the power of God. We are given hope not in small measure but an abounding hope.

To see the power of hope in your life take a few minutes and look back at the past week. Note each time you have seen God’s faithfulness in the joy, strength, comfort, peace, and deliverance given to you. Now use this to be prepared and ready to face the coming days be assured of the promise of God that he will fill you with hope in the future just as he did in the past.

“For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.” (Romans 8:24–25, ESV)

God is giving us the hope we need for days ahead when we cannot see the days but He can. Look of God’s abounding hope in your life.
