“The God Of Hope” ( Romans 15:13, NIV ) by Carley Evans

Paul exhorts us to “overflow with hope” as God “fills [us] with all joy and peace” “by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Read it in Romans:

“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.”

Trust in God, says Paul. Trust in the “power of the Holy Spirit.”

Look carefully at Paul’s exhortation. In describing the Christian life, he uses a wonderful selection of words: hope, joy, peace, trust, power.
