Sometimes the beginning of a school year feels more like a scramble than a purpose-filled READY-SET-GO. We hope it will all work out but preparations give way to procrastination, pulling things together falls prey to problems and we find ourselves shoved into the first weeks of a new school year. We certainly want to have a good “GO” but a delayed “READY-SET” can threaten our much-anticipated “GO” causing us to lose our much-needed grip on things.
“Before you can win a game, you have to not lose it.” Chuck Noll, ex-Pittsburgh Steelers Coach
To keep a firm grip on our “Ready-Set-Go” process our hope needs to be securely anchored in God’s provision and not just in our own strength. His Word tells us that He wants us to meet life’s challenges with our trust in Him and through His sustaining power.
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:14 KJV
Another version of this verse says it this way: “May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.” (Amplified)
PAUSE: Ask God to fill you with hope that bubbles over with readiness and overflows with being “set to go” into this new school year. Then "go" forward as He shoves you into His abounding joy and peace.
READY-SET-GO … ABOUND IN HOPE!
