In the days ahead you must begin to set your house for the future on the foundation of hope. Many of you have had visions and dreams of the glorious future that I have ordained for you and although the manifestations tarry the day of fulfillment will surely come upon you. You must lay the foundation of hope so that you will finish the course that I have placed before you. Your confident desire must be placed in Me. For My own name sake, these things shall come to pass not because you deserve them or have worked hard enough for them but because I have declared them to be so. And this is your confident hope; I Am God and I cannot tell a lie and I will not change My mind. If I have said it; it shall surely come to pass. If you will build on hope then you will see that your despair will disappear. If you will build on hope you will see your fears vanish. If you will build your foundation on hope you will see your strength and joy renewed. But first, you must pluck up the root sin of unbelief that has been allowed to grow in your hearts. I declare today that I Am HE; I Am the holy One of Israel and I have chosen a people who will see the fruit of their hope in Me. I Am that Hope; I Am your Source of success. I Am your Source of trust. “But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired. Isaiah 40:31 So I say wait hopefully and expectantly. You must command your soul to wait in hope for the Lord, “Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, my Help and my God.” Psalm 42:5 I am setting this foundation for something that will last; I Am setting the foundation for destiny and it must be built on a hope that knows that though thousands may be falling around you My Word shall stand and although everything seems to be shifting and changing if you will stand in hope upon the Rock, you shall not be moved. So for My own name sake I will defend you (Isaiah 37:34) and for My own name sake I will blot out your sins and transgression and remember them no more. (Isaiah 43:25). Let Hope be your foundation and your guide as you press into the new, says the Lord.
Confess: Psalm 143:10-12 (AMP) “Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; let Your good Spirit lead me into a level country and into the land of uprightness. 11Save my life, O Lord, for Your name's sake; in Your righteousness, bring my life out of trouble and free me from distress. 12And in your mercy and loving-kindness, cut off my enemies and destroy all those who afflict my inner self, for I am Your servant.”
Decree: Psalm 62:5 “My soul, wait only upon God and silently submit to Him; for my hope and expectation are from Him.”
Declare: Micah 7:7 “But as for me, I will look to the Lord and confident in Him I will keep watch; I will wait with hope and expectancy for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me.”
