Confident Hope of Salvation: Romans 5:3-5

3 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.4 And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.5 And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

Roman 5:3-5 NLT

Our earthly problems and trials, help us to develop perseverance and endurance. Endurance strengthens our character, bringing God’s approval, and creating hope, a confident hope of salvation. This hope does not disappoint us, for God has poured out his endless love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, His gift to us. For Christians, the hope of salvation keeps us rejoicing while going through problems and trials. The Lord is calling us closer to Him, to trust in Him more deeply.

When times are difficult are you able to rejoice, confident in the hope of salvation?

Prayer: Dear Lord, in difficult times, let us turn to you, You are our confident hope of salvation. Like the crocus has two sets of 3 petals that surround the center, we have the Holy Trinity that surrounds us with hope and love. We thank you and rejoice that the Holy Spirit fills our hearts with Your love. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen

  1. At all times and especially at trying times, my hope in God sustains and carries me through. Although I never enjoy the process of going through a challenging time, I know that if I cling close to God – He will strengthen me and carry me through it. Cannot imagine facing life without the confident hope in HIM.
    Blessings 😊💙

  2. Nope. I’m not rejoicing. I’ve been bouncing around in the waves. He’s working on it. Rome wasn’t built in a day. So while I wait I have to learn to rest. He’s working on that too. I wish I didn’t require so much work, but How would I come to know Him if He didn’t spend so much time on me. Now, that’s a happy thought. Maybe it’s okay to be in need. ☺ I suppose that’s something to rejoice about. Thanks for passing on the reminder.

    1. We need to relax and rejoice during lifes high points and whe we are weary and weak we need to lift up our eyes for His strength. Jesus is there for us with unconditional love when we need Him. When we are at our lowest we can rest and learn in Jesus’ arms.
