In The Vine TV: Keep Hope Alive Today
As we take a turn into a new month of a new year, i keep hearing this word over and over.
Keep Hope Alive!
As I woke up one mornning, nursed my strong cup of coffee my husband brewed, and read my first Psalm (from the Message), I was hit again with the word “hope”.
“Wait, Israel, for God. Wait with hope.
Hope now; hope always!” Psalm 131:3 (MSG)
God is not a dispenser of fear. He has a hope dispenser, not soap! Hope! Well, He has given us His Son to cleanse us too! So much hope for you today, not just a small amount either! As He lavishes His love on us, hope pours out in mass quantities as does His forgiveness.
I share another thought on hope in the video above.
Here’s the key thought: Christ in you is the hope of Glory!
“Christ in you is the hope of Glory! “To whom God was pleased to make know what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:27
So as you go into another month maybe some waves have kicked up in your face. Or you feel body slammed by an unexpected wave and you come up for air only to get a mouthful of sand. I believe Holy Spirit is speaking a reminder: “You can float—rest, abide, dwell, and be comforted that in His Presence there is strength. I am teaching you that you are My Much Loved Son, My Much Loved Daughter of The King, and in this place you draw from habitation. Jesus is in you!”
You are learning to live from victory because the Victor Jesus lives in you, friend.
So that’s your word. The water of your circumstances may be cold (snowy, freezing), but Christ in you is your warmth, your strength, your hope!
Keep hope alive!
