30 days of reading, hearing, and speaking truth into our lives; hope.
Welcome to day 29!
Hope…..don’t ever loose it. Cling to it! Let it fuel your faith always!
This is a special word, a feeling inside that keeps us pressing on. Hope really is a prerequisite to our faith. Without hope, what need would we have for our faith. Still, without faith, there would be no hope.
Verse of the day!
As I think about what I want to leave with you, something that provides great impact, HOPE comes to mind. Although we are claiming with complete confidence, BLESSING this year in our lives! Reality is, we will have some bad days. Days when we feel weathered, stretched, and a little hopeless.
But that’s ok. Because we know that we live in a broken world. It would be silly to have any other expectation. There is no escaping the sin of this world until Jesus comes and we meet Him in the clouds of glory! (Oh, how I look forward to that day!). Until then, it is an impossibility for our lives and those around us to be void of sin.
However, what we do have, is Jesus! We have the absolute unwavering Hope in who He is, and what He did for us on the cross, and does for us daily! Together we can take our God given hope and cling to Jesus by exercising our faith. In Him, no matter what comes our way, we will be victors!
We may find ourselves in some storms this coming year, but we will weather them victoriously because of the one that stands by us, lives in us, and holds us up with His mighty hand.
Together let’s look at some of God’s promises that we tuck in our hearts for those rainy days,
No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their vindication is from Me, declares the Lord (Isaiah 54:17).Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing (James 1: 2-4).No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8: 37-39).
Jesus is our blessing, as long as we have Him we can withstand anything and come out triumphantly blessed!
Together let’s claim blessing & victory! In Christ Jesus, we are conquerors. Nothing can stop us from His best and His blessing if we keep saying YES to Him. Together, let’s continue pressing in, following His lead, and leaving the consequences of our obedience up to Him.
Because that is the very heart of blessing!
