May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Romans 15:13 ESV
Hope is often encouraged by sayings like, “Don’t give up on hope” or “There’s always hope!” But the truth is that if we are disconnected from God then the only hope available is a false hope and there are a million people out there willing to offer it to us at a price. But in the moment we surrender to Jesus – who is the God of hope – then no matter our present circumstance we find there is hope all around us. I was especially touched by this video from the prison ministry, God Behind Bars.” It gives me great hope seeing these hundreds of men who had lost all hope, finding amazing hope again in Jesus Christ. This made my day and I HOPE that it makes yours!
