Totally on my mind …

This verse has totally been on my mind lately …

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13 (emphasis added)

There’s been a lot of things in my life lately that seem to have me grasping for  hope in God, joy, peace and the power of the Holy Spirit to transform, I mean truly t.r.a.n.s.f.o.r.m me.   A few things come to mind from the past few weeks … conflict between me and my beloved … fighting with my kiddos … fighting with myself because I forgot to remind my potty-training 3-year-old to use the potty and he’s had yet another accident (grrr!). I also have an ill grandmother who is awaiting cancer test results.

In reality, who couldn’t use a little hope?  a little transformation by the Power of the Holy Spirit?  If you know Jesus, you have the Holy Spirit indwelling you.  The same Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead can transform all the wretched things about you.  Praise Jesus!

What does the Holy Spirit need to transform in you?  Confess that.  Repent of that.  Let the Lord work in changing you to look more like Him!!!  And on that note, be encouraged … that the God of hope, dear friend, will fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13).

    Amen and amen. I love that verse, and it’s so true. If you ask, He is always faithful to work on those areas in you. I could definitely use a transformation too.
