A Pathway where each stepping stone is His Grace to a destination that we cannot fully see, but we walk in anyway because we Trust He Loves us and has Mercy on us.
Look into the invisible, into your Heart and see what Holy Spirit is speaking to you about Hope. God promises this to us about Hope: “For I know the plans I have for you. To Prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you Hope and a Future. Then you will call upon Me and come pray to Me and I will listen to you.”
In Jesus the Anointed One we are born again into a ‘Living Hope’ through His Resurrection. We are literally inserted into His inheritance that endures forever and is kept in Heaven for us. In this Hope we can trust in His unfailing Love to deliver us, know that He is our help and our shield and we can rest in Him, no matter what.
So God has given us hope while we live in this earthly realm where things are weak and not perfect. He’s allowed it to be that way because we are not in Heaven yet, but He has made a way for us to bring the essence of Father in Heaven to earth. But, if we think like the world about the word Hope we will always be struggling to have Hope.
Hope in word form has distinct meanings to different people. Understanding various definitions brings a clarity in forming our own ideas about Hope. And honestly evaluating the ‘stuff’ in our lives helps us to determine our ability to Hope. Because Hope isn’t always an easy thing for us mortal beings.
Hope reinterprets the circumstances. This gives us a new perspective an ability to help us to be filled with the revelation of an unquenchable, unbeatable Hope.
The following highlighted words are some definitions I found for you;
A Desire (wish, aspiration) for something we want to happen or be granted to us. Often used as a worldly ‘wishing’ or something ‘we expect’ with no real assurance of getting the desire.
An Expectation or Optimism for ‘that’ something good to happen in the future from the unseen. Positive thought leaders tout optimism heavily. Christian Faith leaders teach this based not on a worldly hope but by ‘the Spirit of Hope’ based on the Greek definition of Hope which means, to be intensely expectant. A joyful anticipation of good in the middle of any circumstance.
A feeling of Trust. I was surprised that this is considered an ancient definition today because Trust is needed to empower our Faith, which in turn enables our Hope. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen and sometimes it takes a mind-shift or a change of Heart for us to be able to Trust.
A person that helps save someone, (Jesus the Christ). I think this one is what the word Hope in the Bible is most often referring to. Rest your Hope on the Grace you received at the supernatural discloser of Jesus Christ as your Savior, (He is your ‘better’ Hope). It is the Anointing, (Him) that destroy’s the yoke and it’s knowing that which causes Hope to arise up in you.
Start to see the riches of the glory of His inheritance in you. This Hope does not disappoint, because the Love of God is poured out in your heart by the Holy Spirit. When the eyes of your understanding are enlightened, you may know what the Hope of His calling is in the Knowledge of Him. That He will give you the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation in the Knowledge of Him. So doesn’t this mean then that; The Knowledge of Him – is – the Hope of Our Calling?
Everyone who has this Hope purifies themselves and obtains the Hope set before them. Essentially I believe at this point we are partnering with Him. We can be fully confident of this Hope; for the end to be accomplished, the problem solved, our destination made clear or what ever the Lord and you are agreeing upon in Faith starts to become reality as we say yes to Hope in our Hearts.
Begin to see your life through His eyes. Pray the range of your vision is enlightened and enlarged to perceive the purposes of God both in your daily life and into your future. To know the depths of His great Love. His unfailing Love, that He will never shame you and you should find rest knowing your Hope comes from Him.
Try to take your mind off the present situation to get hope that things will improve. I am going to write more about this in the future but if you are struggling then listen to some anointed music and let your heart rejoice. Say yes in your heart to Him and to Hope, it will come easier as you let Him in.
The Lord delights in those who fear / honor Him, who put their Hope in His unfailing Love. The longing of this Hope fulfilled is the tree of Life and those who Hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary and walk and not faint.
Hoping in the Lord is choosing that His promise of strength will help us to rise above life’s distractions and difficulties. It helps us to be ready when He speaks to us. We can have boundless hope, because it will grow stronger by the power of the Holy Spirit’s power and not our efforts.
Love Hopes all things! Christ in you who brings Hope of all the great things to come. God’s secret plan is in you! Christ in You the Hope of Glory living in Your Heart. This truth gives Hope of a life that lasts forever. A safe anchor for our soul and one that will never move. This Hope goes into the Holiest place of all behind the veil of Heaven. Trust God that He will do what He promised.
This desire of Love, when you realize how much He Loves you then you can have confident expectation that this Love / Hope of God lives in you. Never ending… FAITH, HOPE & LOVE … Oh so Beautiful, Thank You my Wonderful.
“Never lose Hope, my Heart – Miracles dwell in the invisible”
