Hope- a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.
Hope- a feeling of trust. (Faith)
I just wanted to take a moment to send some encouragement to someone. It is the time of year when we tend to see more kindness and love in others. We see more people tending to the ones in need and more family bonding. It is something about this season that people look around them and feel a sense of hope. Some remember the good and love in others and it gives them a feeling of comfort. Tis the season, right!
I want to encourage you to rejoice in the fact that the hope and peace that we see all around us in this season, is magnified EVERY SEASON when we put our trust in the Lord! We can experience so many things that cause us hurt and frustration, but glory be unto God for the life of Jesus Christ, that we can have hope in EVERY SEASON.
We can anchor our faith in the promises of the Lord. In Him, in this promise, we can see His glory, His grace, and His love everyday all day. There in the promises of God, we can have expectation of the Lord, and trust that He will meet our needs. His word says That Jesus has entered the holiest place as the high priest where He is moving on our behalf (Hebrew 6:19 & Isaiah 64:4) In our God, is where we can put all of our hope and trust.
We have this hope as anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:19
We don’t have to wait for a set season to have our needs met, the scripture tells us that He walked among sinners so that though Him we have access to the Father. Not through appointed festivals or times, bur instead, through Christ, in every moment. Keep faith in the hope of God
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Hebrews 11:1 KJV
Where is your hope anchored? In whom do you put your trust? Can I encourage you to allow your hope to be in Him? He is not a seasonal God. He is here, walking with us in every season. You can trust that no matter the time of day or day of the year, the Lord is there fulfilling His promise and honoring His deed. Showing us the way that He is able to care for you and supply your every need.
When you are weak, hope in Him. When you are lost, hope in Him. When you need comfort, when you can’t see a way out, put your hope in the Lord and know that He is able to do exceedingly and abundantly beyond all that we can ask.
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles: they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
As we find hope in mankind during this season, never let your hope in the promises of God slide. Keep your trust in Lord everyday all day. Keep Hope in Every Season!
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank you for this season of love and peace. We pray to you, God, that we always remember this hope that can always be found in you. No matter what it looks like, we will stand on our hope in your promise in and out of season. We thank for being a God that always has everything we need. El Shaddai! The God of more than enough! And in that, we will anchor our hope! In Jesus name. Amen!
