HOPE


To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:" colossians 1:27

I was reading the last of one of Nora Roberts' trilogies " the valley of silence" a thought struck me. I realised that what keeps people through dire and distressing times, through extreme conditions, through wars and pain without giving up is "hope". Take away a man's hope and the next minute he is as good as dead.
As christians we have the greatest gift ever; JESUS CHRIST. Getting saved is the best thing that can ever happen to you because you recieve salvation through Christ and another greatest gift, the Holy Spirit. In other words you can never be hopeless. There is no situation beneath the sun that is beyond you because you have Christ in you, the hope of your glory. Life is based on principles so its all about knowing what works and applying it. Why do you whimper and groan endlessly like people who are helpless and have no hope? Why do your eyes look soulless and empty like you are watching the passage of time till when the life you have come to its limited end? Do you know how much God loves you? He gave up His son to die and His ressurrection brought us hope. Hope that there is an end to everything negative. Hope that you can win the fight because the fight has being won for you. Hope that because He lives you also live and there is no fear of tomorrow because you know the redeemer liveth. Hope the pain has an end and healing and health can be yours and mine. Hope that lack is dealt with and abundance, unsearchable riches of Christ is within reach. Lets stop living like those without hope. As a believer search the scriptures and lay claim to what you have earned by Christ's sacrifice on the cross; the gift of eternal life, the flourishing life. You can never lay claim to what you are ignorant of so get wisdom, get knowledge and stop the pity party. The answer is within your closet. Close your door and dig into the Word, and let the Holy Spirit show you what you have been missing.
You can never hold a man of conviction down no matter what. Hope! Dont allow the devil to snuff out the light of hope with his lies. Oh! How he lies! He knows he has lost but if he can hold you a prisoner of your worries and desperation then he can easily lure you away from your hope. Never give the devil a foothold. If you dont know what to do, surround yourself with people of the faith. The devil knows how to lure you away with concerns and worries about that challenge because he knows he cant attack a pack so he singles out his prey therefor stick with brethren of the faith and keep your hope burning bright. Its your responsiblity. Never forget, Christ in you is the hope of your glory.
