Joy and Abounding in Hope


“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.” James 1:2,3

Count it all joy!

That’s the platform, the standing place, to wait on, to stand on, to minister from…

You are LOVED, cherished, redeemed

and you need and must take the time for those truths- the truth of His Word- to sink in past just the ‘washing’ (Eph. 5:26,27), but reach deep beneath the surface,

to become a belief that fully influences

your emotions

and your thinking

and your actions

so that you don’t feel the need to protect yourself (from critics, from failures, from risk) because you know ‘whom you have believed and are convinced that He is fully able’ (2 Tim. 1:12) in all areas to care for and protect you better than you yourself ever could. You are a treasure worth protecting. He won’t just ‘hang you out to dry’.

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
