“I pray that God will help you overflow with hope in him through the Holy Spirit’s power within you.” (Romans 15: 13, the Living Bible)
This prayer is so sweet and assuring. It shares God’s promise that grace is ready to attend us, uplift us, give us sustenance and contentment.
Sometimes it feels hard to be hopeful, let alone expectant of good. But we can trust God Himself to help us to feel that hope and the peace it brings. The Holy Spirit, that divine activity in human hearts and minds, is at the ready to save us. That gentle yet mighty power is truly with us already, as near as our next breath.
As we turn to God, as we accept the tender message of this prayer, a natural expectation rises up within us. Our outlook is lifted from the doubt and darkness and we begin to see that the dawn is ready to break. God’s kindness reveals that all will be well. That simple promise overflows with healing Love and with a renewed sense of Life, a brighter day for us and for all.
