Last week I memorized John 14:26-27 (God is my COUNSELOR).
This week, I am walking with God as my Blessed Hope and Savior!
Hope is to look forward with desire, trust and confidence and feel something that is desired may happen.
I tend to bite my tongue when people say “I have hope in Jesus that such-and-such will work out.” While that might be the case, what is often so easily overlooked is the much larger and more significant fact that:
Christ Himself IS our HOPE…
…Hope that one day this broken world will be fixed.
…Hope that one day there will be no more poverty, lonliness, absure, sickness or sadness.
…Hope that one day our eyes will be opened and our tears will be dried.
The hope in which the Bible refers to is that with Christ as our Savior we have hope for a perfect future eternally glorifying Him!
Lord, I pray you would bury the truth of your word in my heart this week; I pray you dwell in me richly and remind me of the Hope I have in you, my Savior.
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
– Titus 2:11-14
“One of our greatest needs as women is to become women of the Word, so that our prayers, our responses, and our words are saturated with God’s way of thinking…Each of us should be able to use the Word effectively, not only in our worship and our own walk, but also in ministering to the needs of others. If we’re going to be women of the Word, we must make a priority of spending time daily in the Scripture – reading, studying, memorizing, meditating, personalizing, and praying it back to God – letting Him teach us His ways.”
