Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, Then you will overflow with Hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
Have you ever pulled up to a petrol bowser, noticed the price and decided to put $20 in rather than filling up? If someone else had been paying it would’ve been a different story. We would have filled up without a second thought. The personal cost drove our decision rather than the benefits of enjoying a full tank of fuel.
Todays verse lets us know that NOW is the time to fill up. We are to fill up with JOY & PEACE knowing it’s not going to cost us a cent. The God of HOPE is paying. He’s going to fill us up until we’re full. All we have to do is TRUST IN HIM and it’s done. Then we’re able to continue on life’s journey with a full tank and all the benefits that delivers.
Our verse continues on to say that when we’re filled up with JOY & PEACE the Holy Spirit causes us to overflow with HOPE. This means each time we TRUST God in any situation, circumstance or issue, He’ll fill us up. Once we commence moving forward again our HOPE is ignited by Holy Ghost power and we explode with God’s future, promise & purpose.
This week lets trust God with the most broken & painful parts of our lives. Lets allow Him to fill us up with JOY and PEACE concerning them. Then as we continue forward on life’s path the Holy Spirit will ignite HOPE and we’ll be turbocharged into our future. We’ll leave our past with all its dysfunctions & problems and we’ll be speeding along life’s freeway to our future.
