As we approach this Passover, Good Friday, and Easter Season, I begin to contemplate and dwell on the price Christ paid for you and me. There are two songs that spring to my mind. One is the “Revelation Song” and the other is “Mary Did You Know”.
Hope is my middle name. I’m not just saying that, it truly is. I love that it is because it reminds me of so much. There are many scriptures in the Bible pertaining to hope. The one that sticks out most to me is Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the convictions of things not seen.”
What is it that we hope for? More importantly, how do we have faith to believe that what we hope for will happen? I found the answer to the second question in Hebrews 6. This chapter assures me that God keeps His promises. He cannot lie.
“Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near.” Isaiah 55:6 NKJV
“Draw near to Him and He will draw near to you.” James 4:8 NKJV
I will climb this mountain with my hands wide open. I will climb this mountain with my hands wide open. These words were from a chorus we sang recently in church. Now, I am not a mountain climber, however, I can see myself walking up the mountains in the Bible with my hands wide open. more “With My Hands Wide Open”
Do you find that you have a need in your life? Between finances, relationships, health woes, job issues, family life, and stress, I would imagine that most of us have an area that we really need God to show up in. more “Don’t Give Up”
God tells us He is ready to perform His Word in Jeremiah 1:12. When will He perform it? The simple answer is, when we believe. Jesus fulfilled all The Father had for Him to do on earth and declared on The Cross, “It is finished,” (John 19:30). God is ready and Jesus finished the work on earth, so now it is up to us to demonstrate to the world that He is alive in us. “We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us,” (Phil 4:13).
