Welcome to 30 Days of Hope. For the month of April 2020 we will create a blog post, and a podcast on this page daily pertaining to hope, written and recorded by many different people within Dawn of Hope.
Day Seventeen by Jesse Laughlin
Romans 15:13 KJV The God Of Hope“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.”
He is the God of Hope. He can restore your hope in an instant. Surrender to Him. Lay prostrate at the feet of Jesus, for He is Hope. Place your hope in Christ. Maybe, you’ve misdirected your hope. Maybe, you’ve made an idol of hoping in someone or something. Maybe, instead of placing your hope in God, you’ve placed your hope in man and in things. God gives us good things, but don’t let “good” things become gods. Promotion is His. Wisdom is His. Influence is His. Resources are His. Wealth belongs to Him. Don’t focus on temporal things. Don’t worship the temporal, choose to worship God. Place your hope in Christ. He is the God of hope. Your pit isn’t too deep. Your valley isn’t too dark. Let God reignite your hope. Let God restore your hope in Him. You may be surrounded by lions who are looking to devour you, in this case COVID-19, but remember that God is more powerful than any lion that you may face. God will even close the mouth of lions. Submit and surrender to the God of Hope. According to Strong’s Concordance, the Greek word for “Hope” is, ‘elpis’ which means, “to anticipate usually with pleasure, expectation of good, the author of hope, or the thing hoped for.
Prayer: Lord, thank you so much for giving us the Holy Spirit. Help us to be able to listen to the Holy spirits leading. Help us to just surrender to you and have total peace and safety in you! In Jesus’ name, amen.
