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

Pray that we will not quench the Holy Spirit but that daily His power will flow through our lives and be evident as He guides and directs our footsteps. May the fruit of the Spirit spill over to those around us: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.  May we rest in the confidence that we have been sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise and that we are forever a part of the family of God.

“…he invaded your life as Father, Savior, and Helper. By grace, he made you a part of his family. By grace, he made you the place where he lives. And he did all this so that you not only would receive his forgiveness, but so that you would have everything you need for life and godliness.”
