Hope, Trust and Wait
Hello blog readers! It’s been over a week since I’ve posted an article. I have missed you, but I’ve been waiting on God to reveal to me what I should write about. I never want to write from my own wisdom because the truth is, I have none. All my strength, wisdom, and words of encouragement come from the Lord. I depend on the Holy Spirit to tell me what to write — and I’ve been waiting on Him.
Last night, as I was drifting off to sleep, He spoke one of my favorite scriptures to me. I’ve included it in several of my blogs.
Romans 15:13 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.
What a wonderful surprise to hear a message of hope from the Holy Spirit!
This morning, before I felt fully awake, He spoke again. I was ironing my son’s clothes when I heard Him say “they will not grow weary”. I knew it was Him! But, I couldn’t remember exactly how the scripture read. So, I looked it up — and it was another message of hope!
Isaiah 40:31 (NIV) but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
He was encouraging me to hope in the Lord. What a blessing to hear Him. I looked up that same scripture in 3 different versions of the Bible.
(NLT) But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
(ESV) but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
Hope in… Trust in… Wait for the Lord. That’s exactly what I needed to hear — and I’m happy to share it with you.
The devil will not run you in the ground, or wear you out when you hope in, trust in, and wait for the Lord. he Can’t do it! Isaiah 40:31 … And, God can’t lie!
Hebrews 6:18 God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged.
Hope in… Trust in… Wait for the Lord. Stand firm on God’s word and be greatly encouraged.
Philippians 4:1 Therefore, my brothers and sisters, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Lord in this way, dear friends!
God’s word promises that He will renew your strength. You will soar high on wings like eagles. You will run and not be weary. You will walk and not faint.
You are worthy. Don’t give up! You are worthy because He made you worthy.
Colossians 1:12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.
