Topic: Your Hope Will Not Be Disappointed [Thursday May 3, 2018]
“And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.” Romans 5:5
Jesus is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. He will never let you down! It was Jesus who paid the supreme price for your redemption. Jesus knew no sin but became sin that you might be made the righteousness of God in Christ. Jesus. Though, He was rich, became poor that you through His poverty may become rich. In Him we live, in Him, we move and have our being. He did not pay the price for nothing; He died and rose again, just for you to be reassured that every promise He has ever made to you will come to pass. Your hope in Him will not be dashed.
Learn from Job. He was a man that had hope. And he knew that his hope will not be disappointed. So, he declared: “All the days of my life will I wait until my change come.”(Job 14:14) A change is coming to you. Don’t stop trusting! The situation will turn around! Get ready, you are about to shine your brightest. God sent me to tell you today that something is about to break forth in your life. That is why the devil is dancing around you. Don’t fret and don’t shout! “… Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you today…” (Exodus 14:13 KJV)
As a believer, don’t live your life without hope, the devil is a defeated foe. He has been stripped of his power and his authority. He has been reduced to nothing and he remains nothing, but it is your inability to understand this revelation that gives him the effrontery to attack you. Don’t be ignorant of the promises that God has made concerning you, water it daily by declaring it in the face of every challenge and see them come to pass.
