No matter what circumstance you may be facing today, I believe God wants to show you how to hold onto hope. A prayer for today for any believer facing an impossible situation is that God would meet you right where you are. God is hope and he has all the hope you need to endure whatever trial you are facing by the strength of His Holy Spirit. God is strong enough when you are not and faithful when you feel weak. A prayer for today is to let his hope flow through you as you run to Him with all your questions and desires. He will faithfully answer you and lead you with a hope that doesn’t disappoint.
A prayer for today: God alone fills us with hope
“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 (NIV).” -Romans 15:13
This world could never satisfy the longing in our hearts for everlasting joy and peace. A prayer for today for this joy and peace only comes in trusting Jesus. Romans 15:13 tells us that as we choose to trust in God, the God of hope fills us with all joy and peace! It says, ‘that we would overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.’ Both of these portions of scripture help us with a prayer for today for hope. We don’t have to muster up hope on our own and we could never find hope in this world alone. We can’t trust in what we do on our own to give us lasting hope and strength.
God’s Spirit is what gives us the power to overcome, the ability to believe for the impossible, and be joyful in times of trouble. The more we lean into God’s strength over our lives, the more we can rest in hope for every area of life. So, let a prayer for today be for hope in whatever impossible situation you are facing. Whether it be in your finances, your marriage, or a dream yet to be fulfilled, God will give you hope as you choose to trust and lean on Him. Joy and peace will be yours the whole journey long as you hold onto hope. Let this be a prayer for today and let hope rise every time you feel like giving up!
God’s hope will NEVER disappoint
“and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us (NIV).” -Romans 5:5
Isn’t it amazing that no matter where we are in life, we can hold onto hope in God that will not disappoint? Like I mentioned before, the ways of this world will always disappoint and keep us running and toiling. Thankfully God gives us the way out with his love and hope that doesn’t disappoint but endures through all things. 1 Corinthians 13:7 tells us about God’s love and that, ‘It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres (NIV).” A prayer for today for hope comes through the Holy Spirit God has given us. This hope will never disappoint as we learn to fully surrender and trust in who God is and His ability.
Do not waver in unbelief
We see many stories in the bible about a prayer for today for hope. Abraham and Sarah had a prayer for today for hope when they were believing for the impossible as God promised them that Sarah would bear a child in her old age. It says in Romans 4: 18, 20-22: “Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had the power to do what he had promised. This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness (NIV).”
It says against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and what strengthened in his faith. It does not say that God gave them this problem, but God gave them a way out through their faith and hope in His word! If you need hope today, grab hold of your hope in God’s promise over your life. Just like Abraham and Sarah saw their miracle come to pass, so will you if you hold on and do not waver in unbelief. Simply believe the promises of God over your life and step out in faith. Our God does not lie when He makes promises to us. It’s our joy to partner with Him and sees his plan for our lives come to fruition.
