The Power of Hope

hope anchors soulWe live in a fallen world. There is brokenness all around us. Yet, the Lord calls us to live joyfully in the midst of our struggles. Is this possible? Yes, by the power of the Holy Spirit living in us!

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.  Romans 15:13 (NKJV)

The seasons of our lives are not predictable. There will be times of grief and sorrow, times of adversity and trouble, but we can move forward with hope and comfort by trusting in the Lord’s love and compassion for us.

Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!”  Lamentations 3:22-24 (NKJV)

Be kind and compassionate

Cultivate Compassion – There are times when our words and actions can bring hope to the hurting. We can put our compassion into action by using our time, money and energy to help someone in need.  Prayer – Whether you pray with someone or speak to the Lord on their behalf, prayer brings hope and comfort.

Pray – Lord, show me what I can do for those who are in need. Reveal areas in my life that need to receive your hope and healing. Thank you for your love and compassion.
