Day #5 – Overflowing With Hope

Friday, June 7th, 2013

Romans 15:12-13 (NIV)

“And again, Isaiah says,

“The Root of Jesse will spring up,
one who will arise to rule over the nations;
in him the Gentiles will hope.”

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.”

Reflection

Romans 15:12 is one of several examples that Paul provides to the Roman church to illustrate that God’s salvation is intended for the entire world. Not just the Jews can hope in the Lord but this hope is offered to the Gentiles as well.  We are also included in God’s plan of salvation. The Lord extends His hope to us, that we can be filled with all joy and peace as we trust in Him. We can overflow with hope by the power of the Spirit.

Response

Let’s take God at His Word and trust Him to fill us with joy and peace by the power of His Spirit. God invites us to lay our concerns and our burdens at His feet. Let’s pray that our lives will be filled with all joy and peace as we trust in God.  May our hearts change as we overflow with hope.
