Romans 15:13 [ESV] May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Romans 15:13 [Message] Oh! May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope!
Romans 15:13 [GWT] May God, the source of hope, fill you with joy and peace through your faith in him. Then you will overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
“May God” – He is willing how about you?
“so that your believing lives” – How you doing with that?
“overflowing with hope” – is that somewhere your at, or somewhere you need to get to?
May God – yes you may!
May my believing, my faith fill me with joy and peace.
May hope abound through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Not just for me, but for those in the world that I live in. As our lives touch, may others be touched with the overflowing of hope, with the joy and peace, with the grace and mercy, with Jesus.
Oh God, fill me up! That I may be used to touch others.
