HIS WORD BRINGS HOPE
For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. —Romans 15:4-7
What is God teaching you through His Word? His Word was written for that purpose so that we would endure and be encouraged and have hope. Our God is a God of endurance and He relays this through His Word to us. Our God is a God of encouragement and He also relays this to us through His Word. He does all of this so we would have hope, live in harmony with each other, glorify Him with one voice and be welcoming to each other. All this is to be done for His glory.
Feel like giving up? Go to His Word to be reminded of how our Lord God Almighty endures and how many saints of the past have endured as well. Feeling discouraged? Go to His Word to have courage put back into you. Feeling hopeless? Go to His Word to regain hope. His Word has the answers to whatever we are going through. Go His Word to be helped. Go to His Word to be instructed.
Dear Father I am so grateful for Your Word. Thank You for the endurance, encouragement and hope You bring through Your Word to me. May I listen and learn through the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus. So be it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gk9qDuAZtE
