Good morning y’all! How are you doing today? HOPE is my word lately. Maybe you need some hope today. Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Let that word HOPE just soak into your spirit and let hope arise in your heart and push out all that fear and anxiety that keeps trying to steal your peace and joy. God didn’t give you a spirit of fear my friend but a spirit of peace, love, and sound mind. Sometimes though we have to contend for that peace. I have found myself there in recent weeks, maybe you have too.
So what is Hope? I love Joyce Meyers definition; it’s a confident, joyful, expectation that something good is going to happen.
Wow!! Now that’s INCREDIBLE!! I don’t know about you but I sure need some good things to happen. I think we all do, right?
We gotta HOPE on IN FAITH and believe in the promises of God. We need to be prisoners of hope like Zechariah 9:12 says Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners who still have hope! I promise this very day that I will repay two blessings for each of your troubles.
Just think about that for a minute, 2 blessings for each of your troubles. I’m sure you have more than 1 issue going on like most of us, so that’s double for our trouble….Hallelujah!
I know this whole situation can be extremely overwhelming but let me just assure you, this will come to end just like all the other plagues in the past. There is an end date. This too will pass. I know a lot of people are saying this is the end. Could it be, sure. Is it? I don’t know. The Bible says no one knows when that day is so I’m not gonna pretend to know. I’m just gonna say be ready. If it’s my time, I know where I’ll be and I pray you know where you’ll be too. Our focus shouldn’t be on “Oh this is the end.” No, it needs to be us on fire for God, pointing others to the King of kings, being a blessing and encouragement when and where we can. Personally, I think this is Gods way of trying to turn our hearts back to Him, like an awakening. He’s stripped us back from all the things that have distracted us from keeping God first. So there is an end date, but I don’t know when it is but God does. It’s our job to stay connected to the Vine. We may have been caught off guard but God wasn’t!! He is the guardian of your soul and He WILL protect you.
Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.
See sweet friend, the forces that are for you are greater than the forces coming against you. The enemy can’t win! God is with you and will never leave you nor forsake you. If God brought you to it He’s gonna bring you through it and He will give you grace for your place.
God bless you and I hope you have a wonderful day! Praying for you🙏🏻
