PEACEFUL HOPE

Romans 15:13  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.

The Scene: A peaceful cottage setting with a gently moving stream nearby. The 3 birds indicate the presence of the Trinity, overlooking the scene.

Romans 15:4 For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.

1 Peter 3:15-16 But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may may be ashamed of their slander.

The Word addresses hope eternal in God.  Those whose hope is in the Lord Jesus Christ will find true peace.

Psalm 25:5 guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.

When we trust in the Lord we can find peace, even when all seems lost.

John 14:27  “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

Romans 8:31 What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us who can be against us?
