Isaiah:40:31 - but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint”.
Guys, I have few encounters or thoughts running through my head right now and praying for the Holy Spirit to reveal to me as I type. I believe this is about HOPE. So this is how it started. Yesterday, I was trying to find candles for my cousins and I came across 3 candles – JOY, PEACE and HOPE. HOPE stood out for me.
I totally forgot about the HOPE candle until today morning. After my morning prayers and time with God, I saw this sight outside of huge thunderous clouds approaching. The winds were blowing pretty intense to the extent of sweeping of all the litters of the ground or picking them up. CRAZY!!! Anyways as I was looking at all that, I heard a song on YouTube “Raise a Hallelujah”. A particular paragraph caught my attention
“I'm gonna sing, in the MIDDLE OF THE STORM Louder and louder, you're gonna hear my praises roar Up from the ashes, HOPE will arise Death is defeated, the King is alive!”
WOW!!! This is so beautiful. This speaks so much for Hope candle and the storm outside. It’s such a beautiful reminder for us. That JESUS is alive and HE’s the KING!!!
Whatever situation you maybe in which looks like a severe storm and do not know when will it stop, I want to you to read the song paragraph again. It may look like it’s easy for me say, believe me I have been in intense storms and lost hope but His love conquered all for me. Look up to the Lord and surrender and sing praises or even praise Him with any way you like. Don’t look at the storm in front of you but look at the God who is bigger than any storm. HOPE in Him for your breakthrough. Praise Him when you unable to pray. He knows your heart. Just praise Him for the breakthrough He will give you. You are stronger than you think. I want to hare some links of the songs below for you to listen when you are unable to focus, these songs will help you praise and remind you that you are not alone because Jesus is with you. Reach out to Him. There’s HOPE in JESUS.
Dear Abba Father in heaven,
Thank You for who You are in our lives!!! You are all powerful and awesome. Let Your love and presence cover us. Let Your guidance be with us. Lord, where seems there’s no hope, You fill that space. Give us strength and Your grace. In Jesus name. Amen.
God bless you.
