Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope, in the power of the Holy Spirit.
George Frederick Handel had lost his health. His right side was paralyzed. His money was gone. The creditors were threatening to throw him in jail. Handel went through a time of discouragement. He almost gave up, but instead, his faith became stronger and it was during that time that he composed his greatest work, “The Hallelujah Chorus.“
The God of hope who helped Handel can also help you. Let Him fill you with the joy and peace that comes from believing. Remember what the apostle John wrote, “This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith” (1 John 5:4).
Father in Heaven.
Give me faith that sees the invisible, Believes the incredible,
And hopes in the hopeless.
In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
