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

Hope is that favorable expectation; to look forward in confidence to what is to come – that which is good and beneficial.
“If you don’t have faith your hope has nothing to give substance to.” – Pastor Billy Johnson
Provider of Hope
God, himself, is the provider of hope. He provides hope through the word (Romans 15:4, Psalms 119:49) and through his works (Psalms 78:4-7).
The enemy knows the strength and encouragement that comes from reading the word.
“No matter what the challenge may be, God’s word will not fail.” – Pastor Billy Johnson
Proof of Hope
Joy and peace. Not just a little bit, but He crams us with all joy and peace (Rom 14:17). Remember joy and peace are a part of the fruit of the spirit.
“In times of difficulty, in times of challenge, whatever you’ve downloaded into you is going to come out.” – Dr. D’Ann Johnson
Power of Hope
The Holy Spirit. He is the power that works on the inside of us.
“When we are weak…the Holy Spirit is the power that we need.” – Pastor Billy Johnson
