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
How has trusting God filled you with joy and peace? What happens when you don’t trust in Him? Have you ever put your trust in something or someone other than God? What happened? How has the power of the Holy Spirit enabled you to overflow with hope? How does living for Him differ than trying to do it on your own?
