May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trustÂ in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the HolyÂ Spirit. – (Romans 15:13)
We live in the overflow of God’s grace.
David said it well inÂ Psalm 23, “My cup overflows.” Because of the Spirit’s presence, ourÂ hope overflows! In addition to goodness, peace, and joy (Rom.Â 14:17), the presence of the Holy Spirit brings deep, abiding, andÂ personal hope! But let’s not get so focused on the promise to us ofÂ the Holy Spirit’s presence.
Instead, let’s notice that this passageÂ is a blessing that we can share with believers, releasing God’sÂ blessing of the Spirit into their lives. This blessing brings themÂ joy, peace, and hope! What a great gift to share with others whoÂ love Jesus.
Prayer : Father, thank you for your presence in my life. These haveÂ brought me hope, joy, and peace. So please use me to bless othersÂ so that they can experience these blessings from your Spirit. OpenÂ my eyes to those who need this blessing. Give me the gracious wordsÂ to share this blessing with others at just the right moment theyÂ need to hear them. Finally, dear Father, thank you for the power toÂ bless others. In Jesus’ name I thank you. Amen.
