What a privilege to know God and have a relationship with His son and the HolySpirit.
Living in this world of hopelessness we have hope in the one who holds the firmament together.
In the early years of waiting on the Lord for our covenant children, I used to quote the 1st part of Proverbs 13 v 12.
Prov 13 v 12a
Hope deferred make the heart sick……………….
I never really saw the latter part of that verse. I just knew my heart was sick and for a year or so – I was on a rollercoaster of discouragement and just going round the block.
I will read Psalms 42 v 5
Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
And then over a year after the Lord opened my eyes to see the latter part of Proverbs 13v12………..
Prov 13 v 12b
But when the desire comes it is a tree of life!
When I saw this my song changed. And then the Lord took me to:
Romans 5 V 5
Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts.
And that blew my mind.
Ladies no matter how hopeless our situation appears to be, remember this from the word: …..
v17: He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed–the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were.
v18: Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”
v19: Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead–since he was about a hundred years old–and that Sarah’s womb was also dead.
v20: Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God,
v21: being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.
It is wonderful to keep journals, when I went through them and realised I’ve come a long way with God to the point where indeed I can say like David:
Psalm 16 v 9
Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices, my flesh also will rest in hope.
Where every month then used to be a struggle in the past, after these revelation I was free because I knew my hope is in the lord and that my redeemer liveth.
Only His word can heal us and in due time when we allow it!!
My Prayer for you:
Isaiah 40 v 31
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like Eagle, they will run and not go weary, they will walk and not go faint.
May God give you the strength to reach your destination, keep your eyes and your mind on the word of promise – that is the Destination. You will run and not be weary even if everyone else is. You will soar on high as an eagle and you will testify in Jesus name. Amen
And now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing , that you may abound in hope by the power of the HolySpirit. Amen
Hold on to Hope
Hebrews 10 v 23
23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
