Hope In God
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. Romans 15:13
At the time of this recording we are living in the age of uncertainty, anxiety, unemployment, financial crisis, all from something you cannot see. Don’t let the Corona get on ya.
I stand to remind you of the power of hope. Hope in God. The invisible God, he was called Colossians 1:15
Hope is strength for the present
Hope is the belief things will work, especially when it seems otherwise. It helps you stay calm and peaceful when something less than desirable emerges.
Hope believes you will get through it.
Hope remembers the times you made it through.
Hope teams with faith and believes in the impossible.
How do I know this. Because I have survived, I have lived, I can testify to the presence, goodness, mercy, grace, and love of God. I’m not just a hope dealer, I’m a client. Like that hair club commercial back in the 80s
And I bet so can you relate.
Psalm 42:5 King James Version (KJV)
5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance
Do You Remember…
1God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
2Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change
And though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea;
Hope is centered in the person of Jesus Christ. Christ's life, message, atonement for the sins of the world and resurrection are now the basis of hope.
Jesus Christ is the object of Hope, but also He is the one and only who enables us to truly have lasting hope.
Hope comes to us by having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It comes from knowing God on a personal level.
[Carpool Gospel] Korean Soul Covers "Jesus Will Fix It (Trouble In My Way)" by Lee Williams
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27
