Multitudes have flocked to amusement parks looking for adventure and quick thrills. Gamblers drop their wad in casinos and at racetracks, spurred on with a hunch this could be their lucky day. Hearts begin to flutter as the hopeful enter lighted gateways to each attraction.
Imagine flashing neon arrow signs at a stately gate pointing to a building ahead…You reach your destination and a door constructed of unfinished wood stands ajar; you see no more neon lights only a crumpled paper tacked on the door. Someone has written an irresistible message… HOPE
God offers a message to the faint of heart, those who have given up on themselves and future fulfillment. “There I will give her vineyards to her, and transform her Valley of Troubles into a Door of Hope. She will respond to me there, singing with joy as in days long ago in her youth, after I had freed her from her captivity in Egypt (Hosea 2:15 Living Bible).”
Return to youthful ways of joyful singing; find freedom from discouragement and enter peace through a Door of Hope. God freed his people from Egyptian captivity and he is able to deliver us from all that binds us today; he invites his flock to find adventure through service and experience the thrills of hope transforming lives!
