“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.” Romans 15:13
When I read a verse, I always try to figure out what God is trying to say to me. As I was reading through Romans the last few weeks, this verse jumped out to me. The biggest word that grabbed my attention was the word “trust.” I decided to look up the definition.
Here’s what it said: “firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.”
Trust is a very strong word and in this verse the reward to trusting in God is amazing. If we truly trust Him we will “overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Our firm belief in Him and His truth, His ability and His strength, will give us so much more hope. His hope will continue to fill us beyond capacity to the point of overflowing. As I focus on the weeks ahead, my goal is to trust in the Lord so that the Holy Spirit will overflow from me. I challenge you to do the same!
