John Hagee (October-23-2020) Daily Devotion: Romans 15:13 - Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit
As long as we have breath in our lungs, we have a reason to hope. Our God is able! We do not possess the ability to control, contain or explain how He moves and works on our behalf, but we can be confident that He will never fail.
When we call on Him, He will deliver us. He may sail a baby in a basket down the Nile River to crush a mighty pharaoh. He may guide a shepherd with a smooth stone in his hand to take down the giant in front of us.
He may lead a ram up the side of a mountain to tangle his horns in a thicket. He has already provided the most precious gift of all in the form of a Baby wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger of hay. We can be assured that Jehovah Jireh will deliver us!
We once had no hope and lived without God in the world. We were strangers to the covenants of promise. But the shed blood of Jesus Christ brought us into that glorious circle, that marvelous kingdom of light. Hallelujah!
The Lord takes pleasure in those who hope in His mercy. Every person who places their hope in Him will never, ever be disappointed.
Today's Blessing: May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May you abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit! May He fill you up with great joy!
