Romans 5:1 - 5
1. Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
2. By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
3. And not only so, but we glory in tribulation also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
4. And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
5. And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
This was a passage I read during my morning devotion time and I began to think about what it said. Life has many ways to throw us off course and make us lose sight of what God's will is. We are sometimes pushed down by trials and hard times that seem almost impossible to come through. I just want to remind you with these scriptures that no matter what you are going through in life, no matter your circumstance, the Lord knows right where you are and He hasn't given up on you. Through our tribulation God is with us, and knowing that simple fact gives us HOPE.
God bless each and everyone of you, I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week.
