Romans15-13May 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 15:13God of Hope is not just a nice saying; it is Truth personified in the sacrifice Jesus endured for us.  Jesus gave us hope in his crucifixion, but even more when He was raised from the dead.When we accept that Hope, He fills us with all joy and peace WHEN or AS we trust Him with our lives.  Blessed are we when we learn to trust in little things.  He teaches us to trust Him in ever growing ways.Trust multiplies joy and peace.  Joy and peace causes our hope to know no bounds, increasing exponentially; it fuels love.  There is no love without joy and peace and hope.Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. I Corinthians 13:6-8Evil is not compatible with evil, but finds joy in truth.  It protects, trusts, hopes without end.  Love never fails.  What is the genesis of love in our lives?  It is realizing this one truth.  We love because he first loved us.  I John 4:19From returning love to Jesus emanates truth, love, joy, peace and overflowing hope.Oh, how I love Him, how I adore Him,My  breath my sunshine, my all in all.
