Romans 15: 13
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.
When trouble and crisis choke us, we lose hope. Nowadays, there are more possibilities to motivate ourselves and overcome our problems. But, when nothing changes, we lose hope each and every day.
Remember, our hope should be like the woman who touched the cloak of Jesus. Though her sorrow was very huge and lasted for twelve years; Though she very well knew that no one was able to heal her, she had hope in God and so she took a brave step towards Him.
As God said, “Her faith has healed her”, your strong hope in God will make all your trouble vanish away like a snow. Your trust in Him will fill you with joy and peace forever. Our God is a God of Hope. Reach out to Him…
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.”
Doing good to people who do good is not something great. But sharing with people who are in need will always be praised. Do not neglect people, who come to you during their need. Never fail to show your hospitality.
Be faithful in prayer; Be patient in misery; Be joyful in hope. Rejoice with people who rejoice and also mourn with people who mourn. If you are really willing to share someone’s happiness, you should also be willing to share their sorrow. Never let curse come out from your mouth, instead bless those who persecute you. God will do His part…
Bible Verse of the Day March 21, 2013
“A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.”
Though a women has pain and suffering during her child birth, as soon as she see’s her child, she completely forgets about all her sorrows. Her child brings overwhelmed joy and happiness into her life which no one else can give it to her.
In the same way, pain and sufferings are just temporary. There is a time for everything, time for grief, time for joy, time for relaxation etc. Even though you face problems right now, it will never last for a long time. God is at your side and He will give you the joy which no one else can take away.
