"I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13
I wrote about hope a few weeks ago. It was one of the most clear and timely words I've been given from the Lord.
HOPE. Such a pure word.
Tonight at life group we talked about the power of the tongue, speaking life, speaking Gods favor...we talked about living out the Hope that the Lord gave us...when He bought us and gave us His Holy Spirit.
I love that HOPE was the opening to our study.
HOPE is a feeling, and is necessary before FAITH can be born. Hope conceives faith.
Hope is necessary for there to be persistence, it is necessary in keeping us enduring!
When we are HOPEFUL AND REMAIN HOPEFUL that we will lose weight we continue to eat right and work out even when in those weeks where there is no number change. When we are HOPEFUL AND REMAIN HOPEFUL that we will get out of debt, our mind stays on track because we are HOPEFUL and we make choices that will benefit us financially...because we FEEL like we can get out of debt. When we are HOPEFUL AND REMAIN HOPEFUL even when we see no change in our marriage, we become mindful of Him who is the GOD OF THE IMPOSSIBLE!
When we are daily walking in HOPE our faith is increased and we lay ground work for God to move extravagantly!
I want extravagant moves of God...so you will find me HOPE-FULL!
