Good morning friends. I trust you’re doing well and are encouraged in the Lord. In the midst of the hardships we are facing we have seen the goodness of God. We are super grateful for our health, more time as a family and sweet times with the Lord. Before the lockdown Uncle Peter had preached and said something along the lines of “ the facts don’t change the truth” and many of us have some hard facts to face as a result of the lockdown. Loss of income, missing loved ones that we can see in this time, and for some, compromised health among other things. I would like to share this scripture with us today from Rom 15:13
“Now may God, the inspiration and fountain of hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable joy and perfect peace as you trust in him. And may the power of the Holy Spirit continually surround your life with his super-abundance until you radiate with hope!” AMEN💪🏾
I have heard lots say “I can’t wait ‘till all this is over!” And I get that … but God wants to take us through this time. Like he went through hard times with all the hero’s in the bible who trusted him.
Rom 14:18 says anyone who lives in this way (in righteousness, peace and Joy) is pleasing to God and approved by men. I want to be pleasing to God in this time by trusting Him! Overflowing with hope and Joy and peace! God loves it when we trust Him. So let’s fix our eyes on Him and He will fill us with ALL joy and peace as we trust in him so that we can overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. AMEN
