Today's Devotional Scripture

Today’s Verse
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.
~Romans 15:15
Thoughts on today’s verse…
Forty years ago today, July 20, 1969, at 10:56 p.m. EDT, American astronaut Neil Armstrong, walked on the moon’s surface. Do you remember where you were and what you were doing? Do you remember the national pride that swelled in our hearts and we believed that we could do anything as a nation? Well, there are critics and conspiracy theorists who today claim that the moon walk never occurred, that it was all staged. That it was an elaborate hoax.

Today’s verse speaks of believing and of the joy, the peace, and the hope that comes with it. And hope, like nothing else in the world, inspires us and motivates us to keep going. Like when we watched Neil Armstrong walk on the moon’s surface and say, “One small step for man, one giant step for mankind.”

My prayer...
Oh Lord, my God, fill us with hope, fill us with joy, and fill us with the peace that comes from believing. Guard us that we may not become skeptical, heartless, or unfeeling. ~Amen!
