Your Father in heaven loves you with an everlasting love. That love will not fade or burn out. It will never cease. Unlike human love, that can and does fail, My love is unfailing and sure. You don’t have to earn it. You simply have it. You can feel safe with me for I will never leave you. You can let those walls down, because I won’t break your heart. I will heal it. Let go of the pain. Let go of the fears. Come to Me and experience real, true, everlasting love. Love that endures. Perfect love casts out all fear. Love your Daddy who loves you with unfailing love. 1 John 4:18
Beloved, if you are weary, come. If you are lonely, come. If you are confused, distraught, depressed or sad, come. Come to Me, the lifter of your head. I bring joy out of sadness and give strength to the weary. I heal up the brokenhearted and give hope to the hopeless. You are not alone. Isaiah 58:11
“But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” Titus 3:4-7
My child, My hope does not disappoint. Put all of your hope in Me. This world is fading away and you will never be satisfied or fulfilled with the things of this world. But I satisfy your soul. I bring true fulfillment. Rest in My Presence today and experience lasting peace. Those who hopefully wait for Me will not be put to shame.
My child, I want what is best for you. My plan is to give you a future and a hope. I have rescued you from death and I desire that you live an abundant life. Let the past go and leave the future to Me. Walk in My Presence today. I give you peace and joy as you rest in My provision. Make each moment count. Be present in My Presence.
Jeremiah 29:11 John 10:10
My child, I have given you specific gifts to carry out your calling. Take pains with these things. Be absorbed in them so that your progress will be evident to all. Let My love flow through you to everyone you meet. Faith, hope and love, abide in these three, but the greatest of these is love.
1 Timothy 4:15 1 Corinthians 13:13
My child, walk in faith, hope and love, but the greatest of these is love. Pursue love. Let My love flow inside of you and then spill out onto others. I will fill you and heal you as you allow Me to have more access into your life. Only then can you love others with My love. Be filled to overflowing and change the course of this world.
1 Corinthians 13:13
My child, your ways are before My eyes and I watch all your paths. Do not fear for I am with you wherever you go. You will hear My voice saying, this is the way, walk in it. Learn to listen to My voice. Take time to hear what I am saying to you. My plan for you is good and will give you a future and a hope.
Proverbs 5:21 Isaiah 30:21 Jeremiah 29:11
Many Christians get hope confused with faith in their thinking, believing them to be somewhat the same thing. Not so. Hope first comes into play when a promise is given (the same promise we later put our faith in). But hope is different from faith; by definition it is a desire with some expectation of fulfillment. Who hopes for something they don’t want? Anticipating something you have absolutely no desire for would be senseless! And so would hoping for something that you had absolutely no expectation of ever happening.
I might desire to have the glory and sense of accomplishment that being an Olympic runner would bring, but I have zero expectation of it ever being fulfilled. Or I might have some expectation that one day I may have to run for my life from an assailant, but I have no desire for it ever to happen. Neither scenario combines both of the underlying qualifications that make hope possible—that is, a desire along with some expectation of fulfillment. No, we must possess a desire for what we hope for. And we must also have some expectation, no matter how small, that it might be possible.
Hope is the great motivator; no accomplishment—or even action—in life is possible without hope first being present. God has set the following progression in stone: first hope is born in our heart through the promise of the Gospel. Then in drawing us to Himself, God gives us the gift of faith by which we act on that hope. Through faith we receive His promise, being born again and becoming a new creation. Justification, righteousness, reconciliation, redemption and sanctification are all ours solely by the grace of God as we act on His promise by receiving Christ.(John 1:12) But ultimately it is a lifestyle of faith, validated by obedience, by which we obtain the fullness of that promise.(Philippians 3:13-14)
My child, It all boils down to faith, endurance and hope. Will you believe Me? Will you endure to the end? Will you continue to hope in Me alone? This is the life I have called you to. Faith, endurance and hope.
