Walk in faith and hope.

To Everyone hanging desperately to H O P E in Christ Jesus,

Here’s some Scripture I remind you of to try to bless you:

I pray that you may be “being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.” (Col. 1:11,12)

“Remember Your word to Your servant, for You have given me hope. My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise renews my life.” (Ps. 119:49,50)

“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” (Heb. 11:1) For “we walk by faith, not by sight or appearance.” (2 Cor. 5:7) Those are promises. And since “it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” (Heb. 6:18,19) And that hope is anything we ask –for “My Father will give you whatever you ask in My name… Ask and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” (John 16:23,24)

And what we ask for, what we hope for, is for God to grant us peace, to give us wisdom to discern good from evil, to give us love for Him and others, to be given insight in how best to further the Good News for the sake of people and so that there will be more to praise Him for… asking for more knowledge of this Great Being who is Himself Love and Joy and Hope and Comfort and Peace and Goodness and Light and Wisdom and Gentleness and Beauty and Happiness…

May His blessings rain down on His people; and may we always be found pleasing to Him.

Hope and peace and love be yours today and always,
Rachel
