Jan 27th #devo....Romans 12:12 Rejoice and exult in hope; be steadfast and patient in suffering and tribulation; be constant in prayer. There is truth to this verse. I have lived out the opposite. Convinced of hopelessness, impatient and attempting to powerlessly make things happen, and waning in my prayer life. Without fail, returning to God's Word and meeting Him in prayer, instantly restored hope to my spirit, soul and body, and empowered me to compassionatley continue on during challenging times. God in His faithfulness will never leave or forsake (Deuteronomy 31:6, Hebrews 13:5), even when all appears hopeless and one tries to take matters into their own hands, He is there and will bring restoration. Have a beautiful day!
