Constantly rejoicing in hope [because of our confidence in Christ], steadfast and patient in distress, devoted to prayer [continually seeking wisdom, guidance, and strength] Romans 12: 12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
Having hope in this instance refers to having confidence in Jehovah.
In every aspect of my life , no matter how difficult I have complete and total confidence in Him. Even, when I do not understand what is happening or why.
Depending upon the Holy Spirit during crisis’ blesses me with being as steady as a rock. Somethings it will teeter and totter back and forth but never lose its firm footing.
Depending upon the Holy Spirit during this time also expands my patience. Many times it is only by His grace alone that disaster is averted. Devotion to prayer has become such an integral part of my day that I feel totally uncomfortable all day if I do not begin it with morning prayers.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for blessing me with Your Divine presence through out my life. I have complete and total confidence in Your guidance and care for this, Your cherished child. Thank you for blessing me with sharing loving conversations with me every day. I extol Thee in the name of He who is always with me Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
