Being Filled with Joy
Scripture: Romans 15:13 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.
Observation: The key phrase here is “as you trust in him” I haven’t been doing that very will lately, it seems I’m always worrying. God has never let me down yet I live my life at times as if I can’t trust him and have to do it on my own. I will never have peace and joy until I trust God completely, because I can’t receive the power of the Holy Spirit until then.
Application: I need to let go of my worries and give them to God. There is nothing that man can do to me that God doesn’t allow and if He allows it there is a reason and He will get me through. Know that God is with me always and seek his face each moment and ask for his guidance.
Prayer: Dear Lord increase my faith that I will trust in you completely. I freely give you this life as a living sacrifice, may it be holy and pleasing to you.
