As I was filling up my vehicle this morning. Preparing to put on some miles, I thought of so many folks that I know. ...Empty.. They have let life run them completely down. All you hear are their stories of pain, sadness and hopelessness. The news that they share is not the GOOD NEWS of the gospel but the local news.. National News... Tabloid news.. All of the sad and bad news... These folks who claimed to be “Believers”… I have read that the lips of a righteous man is a wellspring of life and also that it is best for us to speak life with authority, so today, I choose to do just that.. Hopefully, someone will join in on this.. I pray that someone gets to know MY GOD… For he is the God of HOPE.. Hope that will sustain us… Hope that gives peace.. Hope that erases the plastic, fake smile and replaces it with ALL JOY… Hope that totally takes over, regardless of how bad things may look or feel. If it’s you that are running on empty or feel like your tank is without life or the fuel to live, take this benediction as the prayer of life that I am praying over you….. 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. AMEN! Be Filled….
