Verses:

Rom. 5:5 “And hope does not put us to shame, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.“

 

Excerpts:

From the day we first called on the Lord Jesus, the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit. This means that the Spirit reveals, confirms, and assures us with the love of God. The indwelling Holy Spirit seems to say, “Don’t doubt. God loves you. You don’t understand why you must suffer now, but one day you will say, ‘Father, I thank You for the troubles and trials which I passed through.’” When you enter the gate of eternity, you will say, “Praise the Lord for the sufferings and tests which fell upon me on my journey. God used them to transform me.”

 

We cannot deny the presence of God’s love within us. Once we were enemies, but Christ shed His blood on the cross to reconcile us to God. If God has given us His own Son, surely He will not do anything to hurt us. What love is this! God is sovereign. He knows what is best for us. The choice is His, not ours. Regardless of our preference, what God has planned for us will be our portion. Everything related to us has been prepared by our Father. We should simply pray, “Lord, have your way. I simply want what You want. I leave everything entirely in Your hands.” This is our response to God when we realize afresh that He loves us so and that His love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit. (Life-study of Romans, msg. 9)
