“HOPE is expecting something GOOD to happen at any moment!”
Winter Is over. Spring is here, and Summer is just around the corner! Now is a good time to put away our thoughts and frustrations of the past difficult year.
According to Genesis 50:20, God can turn what the enemy meant for evil into something GOOD in our lives. I watched Him do this for me those twenty years living in Temecula. While traveling to prisons, I learned to “talk to myself” with Promises from the Bible. It is a good way to overcome the lies of the enemy! Today, although I’ve moved and no longer minister inside the prison facilities, I‘ve discovered I still need to VERBALLY DECLARE GOD’S WORD DAILY.
May these verses inspire YOU to face YOUR day with anticipation and fresh hope!
Isaiah 43:18 KJV
“Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing: now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? (or SEE it?)
“For My plans for you are good and not evil, to give you a future and a HOPE.
God always wants to do NEW things in our life! His plans for us will always be for good, regardless of what happened yesterday. However, we must learn to let go of our old way of thinking. We must let go of the past, and forgive those who hurt us. We must stop wishing things were different, and SEE what God has planned.
We can begin by asking each morning, “Lord, what do YOU have planned for me as I walk through this day? He may use you to comfort someone. He may bring you a new friend. He may give you fresh vision. He may suddenly answer one of your long-awaited prayers. He may give you HOPE to believe for a miracle again!
Psalm 38:15 For in Thee, O Lord, do I hope: Thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
