The Road less Traveled – Romans 12:12

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Romans 12:12
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

OK. Maybe it’s just me but it seems like these don’t go together all that easily. I mean think about it. It says to be joyful in hope. That sounds good. Yet, the longer we have to hope the more that joy is tempted to turn into worry.

Then we’re told to be patient in affliction. The last thing on our mind while in affliction is being patient. In fact, when we’re in affliction all we can think about is getting ourself out of the situation .

Then we’re told to be faithful in prayer. If there’s one topic that every single believer needs to work on more, it’s prayer. Seriously. Even when we’re doing good with prayer, we know we could be doing better. I believe it’s a topic that will always be an area in need in our lives.

Yet, in all of this, we aren’t called to be ordinary people. We’re called to be servants of the most High. So be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!
