Thursday – Letters
Reading – Romans 15
“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.”
Romans 15:13 NLT
I need this verse today!
I might print it out and put it over my desk.
Here’s how these devotions work for me. First thing in the morning, I do the reading for the next day and have a time of prayer, sometimes brief, sometimes longer.
I try to remember chapter throughout the day and pray about what I should write.
Sometimes at lunch, sometimes in the evening, most often late at night, I sit down and write this out, edit, and schedule it to post on Facebook and WITLBible.com for 12:05am Mountain Time.
Tonight, it’s 10:30 by the time I’m writing this. I prayed again and read through the passage while thinking of a certain verse.
It’s been a very busy and exhausting day so I’m already formulating a simple commentary when this verse leapt off the page!
My immediate thought was “I need this.” Then I thought, “Others need this too.”
So here it is.
Do you need a refill of joy, peace, and confident hope like I did today?
Connect to the source. The power of the Holy Spirit will never fail.
