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.
~ Romans 15:13 ~
I know I should no longer be astonished by how our Father knows exactly when we need to hear from Him, but I am: On the heels of His unfailing love, came a card with an encouraging message from a precious friend to not lose hope.
“God” she said, “is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1). We need Him so much!
Father, thank You for friends who respond to Your promptings to encourage us. Help us to be available to You that we may be the source of Your encouragement to some and the instrument of Your joy and peace to others. We ask these things in Jesus’ name, knowing that He is interceding for each one of us. Amen.
