Living the Life

In chapter 12 of Paul’s letter to the believers in Rome, Paul gave much good advice on what it is like to live the life of a believer. In verse 12, he wrote, “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” (English Standard Version)

Joy, patience, faith. Let your joy be fastened to what you are hoping for; don’t let the absence of the hoped for developments be what you are focusing on. Be patient when circumstances are not just the absence of pleasantries, but the presence of difficulties. Focus on the presence of the Lord. Never stop praying for the solutions you need. Expect to be answered.

Trust His love above everything else.
