May The God Of Hope Fill You With All Joy and Peace

💫 ❤️ Health-giving Hope 💖

🌞 It is well-known that our emotions can have a profound effect on our bodies. And the condition of our bodies can affect our emotions. For example, a 1997 article in the journal published by the American Heart Association points to the negative physical consequences of hopelessness. It essentially said that those who had experienced extreme feelings of despair had a 20-percent greater increase in arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) over a 4-year period. Other studies have also connected hopelessness with heart disease, heart attacks, and death.

🙇‍♀️ The relationship between one’s emotional well-being and physical condition, however, is not a modern discovery. In the Old Testament book of Proverbs, we read that “a merry heart does good, like medicine”, and that the wisdom found in God’s words “are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.”

🙇‍♂️ 🙇‍♂️ A proper relationship to God and His Word can benefit us spiritually, physically, and emotionally. The central concern of the gospel is to bring us into a right relationship with God through faith in Him. Its blessed byproduct is an abundant life filled with health-promoting hope — the assurance of total forgiveness of our weaknesses and eternal life with Him. — Vernon C. Grounds

The hope we have in God
Brings joy into our heart;
And when we know the love of God,
His peace He will impart. — Spergeon

Hope in the heart puts a smile on the face.

Seeking Reconciliation – Faith And Salvation

Romans 5:1-11 NIV

Peace and Hope

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we[b] boast in the hope of the glory of God. 

Not only so, but we[c] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! 10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! 

11 Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
