Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we CONFIDENTLY and JOYFULLY look forward to sharing God’s glory.
We can REJOICE, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop ENDURANCE. And endurance develops STRENGTH OF CHARACTER, and character strengthens our CONFIDENT HOPE OF SALVATION.
And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. (Romans 5:2-5 NLT, my capitalization).
Lord thank You for showing Your love! Thank You for making a way out of dark places! Thank You for confidence, joy and rejoicing! Thank You for never disapointing, even when we may have thoughts and feelings of disapointment! Thank You for for Your Holy Spirit leading, guiding, and filling our hearts with love! Thank You ❤
