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)

I pray that God, the Source of all hope, will infuse your lives with an abundance of joy and peace in the midst of your faith so that your hope will overflow through the power of the Holy Spirit. – (Romans 15:13, VOICE)


When we place our trust in God, His Holy Spirit comes and dwells within us, so His power resides in us. Through that place of trust, we are filled with His joy and peace so that what is from Him, may freely flow. Our very lives become infused with all good that God grants by His grace, so that we may go forth and be beacons of hope by His Holy Spirit. May we choose to trust in Him, who is the Source of all joy and peace, so that we my overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.


When we choose to trust,

Gracious Giving

the God of all hope;

He freely shall fill,

us so we can cope.

He’ll fill us with peace,

and abundant joy;

present, His Spirit,

power to employ.

He gives and He gives,

’til hope overflows;

so others may come,

to trust what we know.


Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are the God of all hope, and that You fill us with joy and peace as we trust in You. Thank You that You give us hope through the power of Your Holy Spirit, who dwells in us, when we choose to trust in You. Forgive us for not giving enough credit where credit is due, or for not placing all of our trust in You. Teach us to trust You more, so that we would allow Your light and life and love to fill us with all joy and peace and hope to the point of overflowing. Show us how to be vessels that allow the overflow of all that You give to us, to flow freely to all who are around us. Help us to love others well. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we trust in You, so that Your hope may overflow from us by the power of the Holy Spirit within us. Amen.
