Hope

The enemy of your soul would have you feel there is no hope.  He would have you feel trapped in a situation or be held hostage by sin, yet there is overwhelming hope, deliverance, and freedom found in the arms of Christ. 

Hope is defined as, “Noun - 1. the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best.”

In Hebrews 6: 18-20 we read, “That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:  Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;  Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

Christ is our “hope” and grants us “strong consolation”.  Turn to him and cry out to him.  In surrendering your life through obedience to God, you can find hope in your individual life.

Where does God dwell?

From the beginning of creation, God wanted fellowship and to dwell with mankind.  This is evident from the account in the book of Genesis where God had regular communication with Adam and Eve.  This fellowship soon ended because of Adam and Eve’s disobedience which began the separation between sinful man and a Holy God.  However, because of His great love and mercy, God slowly began to reach out to man through Abraham, Moses, and others.  He even began to temporarily dwell with his people by His presence in the Tabernacle in the Wilderness and in Solomon’s Temple. 

God then showed his great love by coming to earth and dwelled with us as Jesus Christ.  While here, he showed us how to live and demonstrated his love and compassion.  Ultimately he gave his life as the sacrifice that allows us to be saved from Sin by his presence dwelling in our hearts.  So where does God dwell today?  He dwells with those who seek him with all of their heart!

Jeremiah 29:13 - "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."

Ephesians 2:21-22 - "In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:  In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit."

Your Testimony

Mark 5:19  "Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.."

These are final words from Jesus to a man whom he had recently healed.  Jesus simply commanded the man to tell others about what the Lord had done for him.  People today will dispute Theology and Doctrines, but can’t in any way discredit your personal testimony.  So the challenge for all of us is to tell someone about the compassions of Christ and the great things he has done for you! 

Your testimony could make all the difference in someone’s life!

Joshua 1: 8

This world we live in is far from perfect. There are negative events that can and do occur in all of our lives. However, it is how we react to these events that can determine our ultimate success or failure. No matter your circumstance, always choose to do the right thing and stay true to God. If you do this, there are many blessings in your future and your life will be a success.

Joshua 1: 8, "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success."

Peacemakers

Hebrews 12:14 - Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.

This verse teaches that in order to "see the Lord" we must be Holy. The only way to be holy is to have God's Spirit living in our hearts and directing our lives. However, this verse also teaches that promoting peace is related to Holy living. Although our Holiness comes from God, there is always something for us to do. Actively seeking peaceful relationships and resolutions to conflict is part of "Living Holy". The enemy of our soul desires us to have continual conflict and strife. This week recognize the enemy when he tries to bring conflict in your life and remember to follow peace with all men.

Matthew 5:9 - Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
