Rom. 15:13 I pray that the God of hope fill with all joy and peace in believing, that I may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
With all the crisis that currently are confronting societies across our nation and around the world, there is a vacuum of hope, little joy and absence of peace. Yet the God of the Bible desires for His children to “abound in hope”.
Hope is vital as it what gives substance to things we are standing in faith for. Hope is also vital in bringing authentic joy and enduring peace. Even in the midst of storms, the saint of God can abide in peace with joy because hope is based on the “expected end” of our faith. What God desires to accomplish with eternal value and purpose.
My prayer for our nation is what Paul penned in this verse “that our God of hope fill our land with all joy and peace in believing Jesus Christ is the Son of God by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Will you agree with that declaration?
