Hope is the confident expectation of what God has promised.
Today hope looks like:
♦Not growing weary in doing good - Galatians 6:9
How? Keep on keeping on my friends. The world needs you. If you are tired rest. Rest in the assurance that God loves you. Rest physically and mentally and then stand on His promises.
♦Knowing God works all things for the good of those who love Him and are called according to his purpose - Romans 8:28
How? Sh*t happens. God is for you and walking with you. Are you seeking Him or are you seeking pity for your circumstance? It's okay, that's real. Seek solace in a trusted friend, seek love and shelter in the presence of your Father and pray without ceasing.
♦Confession and bold, never ending prayer - James 5:16
How? Spill it, to the right people or just to your loving Savior. Confession IS good for the soul. Get it out and then know your slate is wiped clean as far as Jesus is concerned. And PRAY. Pray for the world, pray for the nation, pray for your family. Pray that you would know the life altering, relentless love of God. Pray that you you would be filled with unshakable hope and heavenly strength. PRAY.
♦Knowing You are a daughter or son of the King no matter what. - Romans 8:38-39
How? Claim it, believe it, receive it, know it, trust it. But what about all the times I blow it? What about my past? What about my current situation? What about it? God says you are His, and that my friend, is that!
♥Life on Purpose where we Trust.Seek.Pray.Decide.Act - Ephesians 2:10 & 22
For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
Through him you, also, are being built in the Spirit together with others into a place where God lives.
What you think? Can you hope today? Will you hope today? Need some help? We are here, ready and waiting.
