We are blessed

joy-boy

Today’s Verse: Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. NASB

I read pretty much the whole of the letter to the Romans today as I searched for a devotional verse. Some mornings a verse just springs forth. Most days I find it is better to just slow down and let God work in my mind and heart by reading for a bit longer. In fact, that’s not a bad pattern for all days is it not? Then, I came across this wonderful blessing from Paul. I just read it over and over letting the richness of the thoughts soak into my heart and mind. Our God is the one God of hope. This is the assurance of our faith with its unwavering  foundation in His faithfulness. In the face of storms and frustrations in life, we can have true joy because we have Him. There is incredible peace in knowing that we have found the truth. The truth in which we believe has not and will not ever change. Because of this truth, we can be bursting at the seams with hope because we have assurance and the power that comes from the indwelling of His Spirit that He has given us as His children. We have truly been blessed.

May God always bless your heart as you seek His.
