Peace and Confidence



Romans 15:13 (NLT)
I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in Him.  Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

I love two phrases in this scripture:  complete joy and peace & overflow with confident hope.  Don’t you want that?  Wouldn’t it be great to have complete inner peace – a feeling of being settled, calm, right with God?  Joyful too!  Your soul would be so right that you’d overflow with confidence that God is working out His plan for the world.  Confidence.  Joy.  Peace.

How?

Read the verse again…..  I’ll wait.

God will fill you with joy and peace and confidence because He is the source and you trust in Him.  Trust in Him.  God is good.  He loves you dearly, personally.  He wants the best for you (which might look different than you think).  Lean in and trust Him even when you don’t understand, even when it’s hard.  God works all things for good in His time.
