Hope

12/04/2018 12:12

Friend, do you wake-up each morning filled with the Spirit of Hope?

As believers this is our right; to have Hope.

Not just the hope that is in the world, where men and women anguish over their lives, but the Hope of God where we believe that our God is Good, and is doing all things according to His Will for us; making ways where there seems to be no way to us, healing our minds and hearts, teaching us to love as He Loves us, providing all our needs, giving us confidence for each hour, filling us with Hope for the day and our future.

Believing in Him draws us to Him; causing Him to fill us with Hope for each new day and in all things concerning us.

Walking in Hope fills us with all the positive thoughts and feelings we need to face each day in every situation, because we know that God has promised us many things and He is not a liar.

He is right there with us; even in the dark times of sorrow and pain.

Colossians 1:5 
For the Hope which is laid up for you in Heaven, whereof ye heard before in the Word of the Truth of the Gospel;

1 Thessalonians 1:3 
Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of Hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;

1 Thessalonians 5:8                                                                                                                                           But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the Hope of Salvation.

Friend, through the death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, God has made a Way for those who believe in Him, to have Forgiveness from God for all their sins; that they may live in Hope of Eternal Life and a life filled with the Hope of God, for all they may encounter in this world.

2 Thessalonians 2:16
Now our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us Everlasting Consolation and Good Hope through His Grace

1 Timothy 1:1 
Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our Hope

Titus 1:2
In Hope of Eternal Life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

Titus 3:7
That being justified by His Grace, we should be made heirs according to the Hope of Eternal Life.

Friend, let us humble our soul before the Cross in awe and wonder of how Great our God Is. Let us shed all our sorrow, pain and doubt at the foot of the Cross, shed our sinful nature and ask for His Hope to fill us with Joy for each day.

Jesus holds all that is our Hope in His hands, and will not let the evil one grasp it from Him. We just need to keep our eyes, ears, heart and mind fixed on the One Who died for us to have Hope.

Hebrews 6:11 
And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of Hope unto the end:

Hebrews 6:18 
That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a Strong Consolation, who have fled (from evil) for refuge (in Jesus) to lay hold upon the Hope set before us:

Hebrews 6:19 
Which Hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, 

Hebrews 7:19 
For the Law made nothing Perfect, but the bringing in of a better Hope did (Jesus's Sacrifice); by the which we draw nigh unto God. (through Jesus)

1 Peter 1:13 
Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the Grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

It is through the Grace offerred to us by God giving His Son as a Sacrifice for sinners that we receive Hope.

1 Peter 1:3
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His Abundant Mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively Hope by the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

1 Peter 3:15 
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the Hope that is in you, with meekness and fear: (Awe of the Power of God over our souls.)

1 John 3:3
And every man that hath this Hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is Pure. ( By God's Standards.)

1 Thessalonians 4:13
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep (dead), that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. (Do not be ignorant, those who die in ignorance, have no hope.)

Know God and live in Hope which brings Joy to the soul for the remainder of our lives!
