Overflowing Hope

Dear sisters,
I think we can say we’re at the beginning of the year, we’re still in January, just about. At the beginning of a year our hopes and expectations are high as we hope our dreams and visions will be fulfilled and start to become a reality.

God is the author of hope, and the more we walk with Him, the more this hope overflows in our lives.

I love this verse in Romans 15:13 where it says, “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.”

We ask God who is hope fills us with joy and peace as we trust him, then hope overflows with the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit.

Many times though we hold back on our hopes. What holds us back? Often it is because of disappoint from our pasts and the fear of failure.

So what should we do when we have experienced disappoints and have the fear failure?
Put our trust in God, tell Him about what it is we fear and lay it all down before him and tell Him our disappointments. God hears us, loves and cares about us, He is the one who wants us to keep our hope alive and gives us real hope that is ‘God-hope’. God is the author of hope, we can trust Him. When we do His joy and peace fills our hearts and by the power of the Holy Spirit His overflowing hope floods in!

The word of God comes more real to us when we pray it personally like this:

“May the God of hope fill ME with all joy and peace as I trust in him, so that I may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Rom. 15:13.

What are you hoping for this year 2017? The God-given dreams and visions that fill us with hope will happen, it’s a matter of time. God is trustworthy and He is always faithful.
