Hope in the Scriptures (Romans 15:4)

Today’s scripture: Romans 15:4

Communication is key in any relationship. Think of any successful relationship you’ve ever been in or observed. Don’t the people in this kind of relationship talk to one another, share their hearts with one another?

Our relationship with the Lord is similar. We need to communicate with Him.

We speak to Him when we pray; He speaks to us through His word.

God has given us the incredible privilege of being able to read the words that He inspired His servants to write. And we can learn about Him and His love for us as we read the Scriptures.

Even more, we can be comforted by His words and that comfort can give us hope.

God desires to speak with us. He wants to tell us how He loves us, and He wants to commune with us. We can read verses and chapters and books in the Bible and know, with all confidence, that God, our Heavenly Father, is speaking with us. And we can, just like with our relationships on earth, hear the words He wants to say.

Spend some time in God’s word today, and listen to what He has to say to you.
