God's Holy Fire: 'Overflow of Hope'

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 NIV

Key Thought

Rather than having much commentary on this beautiful blessing, let's share the joy of this blessing and the confidence of our hope with those we love! May this blessing be for all of you. May hope be yours because of the precious gift of the Holy Spirit within you!

Today's Prayer

O Father, I thank you for living hope — the hope that I have because of my living Savior who conquered death and because of the living presence of the Holy Spirit within me assuring me that I will share in glory with you. I thank you that my hope is not just a wish for something in the future, but that it comes with the deep assurance that what I hope for will happen. Thank you, in Jesus' name. Amen.
