Hope is like a fire; it needs fuel to keep going. Many people around us have lost hope. So, it’s our responsibility to help them rekindle the flame of hope. Often, all it takes is a spark of encouragement.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV) Therefore encourage one another and build each other up,
There is hope for the hopeless in Jesus Christ
Romans 15:13 New King James Version (NKJV) 13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
What is the best gift we can give God today? In gratitude, humility, and love we can give our hearts, minds, and will entirely to Him.
Romans 12:1: “I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God,which is your reasonable service.”
Just like our parents whose arms are a safe retreat from danger, God’s comforting presence protects us from life’s emotional storms. The Bible says “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings, you will find refuge,” Psalm 91:4
When your heart is hurting, present your needs to God. Through Christ, you have unlimited access to the Father 24/7
Romans 5:1-4: Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.
