Our God a Mighty Warrior. He’s a consuming fire. In victory He reigns. We triumph in His name. This year is full of such hope. 2017 was a year of brutal pain in my life. 2018 is so far characterized by great hope. I have a general feeling that I will just keep getting more of it.
Therefore since we have been justified through faith, we 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 boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we 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. Romans 5
