Happy Mother’s Day!
The greatest gift you or I can ever give anyone, is hope. If you are in Christ, God is calling you to be a Hope Dealer. We not only receive hope but we are to give it away!
When people loss hope, they loss their ability to dream. Despair replaces joy. Fear replaces faith. Anxiety replaces prayer. Insecurity replaces confidence.
It is a sad way to live. When discouragement settles in; parents give up on their kids. Leaders throw in the towel. Healthy emotions are replaced with toxic attitudes and Satan is loving every minute of it.
Romans 15:13 says, “May the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” True hope is only found in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The God of hope will not only fill you with joy and peace, He will fill you to a point of overflowing with hope! That is a promise written to you!
Hope liberates. Hope releases you from your past. It breaks the chains of guilt and past failures. It can release you from bitterness and anger.
Hope also motivates. It helps you to bounce back. Have you ever notice how many come back stories there are in the Bible? Hope looks at the future and not the past.
Hope also initiates. Hope sets us free to dream! Dare to dream today! Don’t give up on your dreams!
Hope activates. Hope helps us believe that we can make a difference.
1 Corinthians 13:13 says, “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.” Christianity will never thrive without all three.
God bless this special day!
