of the Holy Spirit
will then be able
to fill you
with confident hope.
Ever been in a place where the joy and peace of God seemed absent in your life? Ever find yourself wallowing about life and trying to figure out how you got there and what can be done about it? Ever find yourself being over critical of yourself, beating yourself up over mistakes, angry because you aren’t the “perfect Christian” you think and want to be?
Today is your day then, let God’s Word from Romans 15:13 speak to you:
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.
Let’s plug into faith and trust and hope in God. Stop plugging into doubt and unbelief for this gives the devil a foothold into your life and allows his lies to torment you with negativity, anger, and impatience through the process.
Looking for a way to get started? Wondering what to do?
Turn to God’s Word. Pick up the Bible and start reading the truth of who He is and how much He loves you.
God’s Word gave me the answer. Jesus loved me so much that He not only forgave all my sins from the past but also looked ahead and forgave me for those moments of weakness when I’d fail in the future. I don’t have to allow Satan to sneak in with questions or unbelief, and you don’t either.
Know today that peace, hope and joy are right in front of you. Go to His Word and let it stir up your faith.

Filled with All Peace and Joy
13 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.

I am making a new law for people in every part of my kingdom. All of you must fear and respect the God of Daniel. Daniel’s God is the living God; he lives forever. His kingdom will never be destroyed, and his rule will never end. God rescues and saves people and does mighty miracles in heaven and on earth. He is the one who saved Daniel from the power of the lions.
Daniel 6:26-27 (NCV)
Worship the Lord and walk according to His ways, trust Him and turn your heart from earthly treasures. He is able to deliver His people from trouble and worry, The sovereign Lord reigns forever!
