I am secure when I lock myself in my prison of hope. Maybe you’re thinking that being a prisoner represents captivity and loss of freedom. In God, we are bound in believing the best is yet to come; victory is on its way. Allow yourself to be captured by and be filled with hope.
Return to the stronghold, You prisoners of hope. Even today I declare that I will restore double to you. ~ Zechariah 9:12
Biblical hope is a solid foundation. Hope is a confident and eager expectation of something good. God promises He will restore double what we have lost or had stolen from us. Are you ready to receive a double blessing?
As for me, I accept that I am a Prisoner of Hope – someone who God brought from a wounded victim in a biker gang war to an encounter with the hope and healing of God’s love.
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. ~ Hebrews 10:23
We know we will encounter life’s trials and tests. But be assured, there is hope in the valley, there is deliverance at the end of the trial, there is joy in the journey. Whatever you may be facing today, open your heart to the one who is our hope. Rest in Him and His promise of eternal life. Nothing can separate you from His love for you!
So how do we guard our hearts against a hope deferred?
Our hope must be based on the unfailing, amazing love of God for us. ~ 1 John 4:19
Keep your eyes on Jesus and not on your circumstances. ~ Hebrews 12:2
God’s timing, is not your timing. ~2 Corinthians 6:2
God will work all things together for your good. ~Romans 8:28
Know that we live in a sinful world and our plans may not come together in the way we envisioned them. ~Proverbs 16:9
In the meantime, renew your faith in the Lord. He is our Hope!
Thank you, Lord, for the hope, we have in you. May we live as a prisoner of hope. We know you are faithful to your promises.
