Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Hebrews 15:13.

“And now, LORD, for what do I wait? My hope is in You.” Psalm 39:7.

Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him For the help of His presence. Psalm 42:5.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

I am the God of hope. Hope is always expecting and knowing that that your life will be filled with good things, that no matter what situation or circumstances you are walking in at the moment I am walking there with you to lead you out of the darkness into My marvelous light. David sang, “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for you are at my side with your rod and your staff that give me courage.”

I am the God of hope. When you believe My Word, I can fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you too abound in hope by the power of My Holy Spirit in you. For He makes you a partaker of My divine nature. And that is grace, My divine life in you empowering you to prosper and be in good health even as your soul prospers. Your joy and the miracles in your life will be according to your faith, if your faith is strong, you will stand strong and see the victory. If your faith is weak, you cannot stand against the enemy. The righteous one (which you are if you are in Christ) shall live and walk by faith, but if he draw back I take no pleasure in him. Why? Because I delight in doing good to you and if you give up before I can reward you with the promise that is in My Word, I am disappointed. But true Bible hope does not disappoint. The hope of the righteous is gladness. Proverbs 10:28. If you have received Jesus as Lord, you have Christ in you, your HOPE of Glory. Christ Jesus is your hope. He is the resurrection and the life. He makes you a new creation in Christ, filled with hope of a new day.

You can have faith that you will have My precious and magnificent promises in your life because I love you. Not because you have loved and been good, but because I love and am good. Love consists not in that you have loved Me but that I have loved you and have given My Son in propitiation for your sins. Not His, He had no sin, but He took yours and gave you His righteousness in exchange. He emptied Himself to give you everything that is in Him, and in Him are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

You can love because I first loved you. When you really know and believe in the love I have for you as manifested in My Son, you can walk in complete confidence, peace and joy because ultimately everything in your life depends on Me. And that means you are depending on love. And love never harms the neighbor. Love forgives and gives. There are no limits to My love for you, they are as vast and eternal as I am. I know the plans I have for you, plans for your shalom and NOT evil, to give you a future and a HOPE.

Faith, hope and love are wonderful things. They turn your life around; they fill your days with beauty and take away your frown. They turn you into a prophet, telling the good news, that I am here among you, making all things new.

Believe for great things no matter where you are now and great things will happen. Do not worry about things. Worry opens the gate of your heart to Satan. My Son gave you His peace but told YOU not to let your heart be troubled, not to let it be afraid. Fear takes faith away. It quenches the fire of faith. Faith dispels fear, but fear dispels faith. Faith and fear cannot coexist in your heart. They are opposites. Whichever one you let predominate will cancel out the other. And it is your choice. You know it is. My Son told Jairus not to fear and only believe. It meant he could do that. I never tell you to do something that you cannot. I empower you to do what I tell you. And I repeat over and over again in the Bible, “Do not fear.” If you are really interested in pleasing Me you will take that command to heart and treat it seriously. You cannot please Me without faith and fear cancels out faith. You can stand on My Word and rejoice or you can surrender to the enemy in fear and doubt. Your choice. But you can fight the good fight of faith and come out the victor every time even when it looks like for sure you will lose this time. But that will not happen if you have fully persuaded faith.

And your faith will only work if you know I love you. I certainly have proved My love to you in so many ways, but above all you see it in My Son who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil. And He is the same yesterday, today and forever. But He told you that healing and all the other miracles people asked for and He performed were according to your faith. My power but your faith. My power has nothing to connect with if you do not have faith.

How much will you receive? As much as you can believe. All things are possible to those who believe that nothing is impossible for Me.

Hope. Where does hope come from? David sang, “My soul, wait in silence for God only, for my hope is from Him.” Psalm 62:5. I am the God of hope and hope comes from Me. And how do you obtain that hope that will make you have joy in the midst of trial? The key is in Psalm 119, “Remember the Word to Your servant, in which You have made me hope.” Psalm 119:49. Hope comes from the promise of good in My Word that it is for you. When you are sick, it is My Word to you that I am your healer, that I send My Word to heal you, that My Words are life to those who find them and health to all their flesh, that by the bloody scourging of My Son you are healed, that He bore your sickness and pains, that that I forgive all your sins and heal all your ills, and that you have resurrection power in you by My Spirit dwelling in you and He gives life to (quickens) your mortal body. And there are many more scriptures filled with promises of healing that will give you hope. And if you continue with that hope, it will not disappoint. Faith and patience will obtain the promise. In Psalm 103:5, a song of ascent, it is confirmed again, “I wait for the LORD, my soul does wait, and in His word do I hope.” Faith, hope and love all come from hearing My Word and receiving and cultivating it in your heart.

For My Word is Spirit breathed and you have the prophetic word made more sure in Jesus and by My Spirit in you, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. And that is the birth of hope. Know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from Me. 2 Peter 1:19-21. So whatever was written in earlier times was written for your instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures you might have hope. Romans 15:4.

Keep your eyes on My Word as a light in a dark place until you reach the glory of a perfect day. Never give up your hope and combine it with faith. For faith is the substance, the title deed, of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Faith gives substance to your hope. You cannot hope for healing if you don’t have faith that I am your healer and you won’t have faith that I am your healer unless you know My Words to you as written in the Bible. Everything goes back to My Word. “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” Everything was made by and is sustained by My Word. So hope comes from My Word. Faith comes from My Word. And love comes from My Word. And I am My Word and Jesus is My Word made flesh. Hope in My Word and you will not be disappointed if you do not give up.

I love you. Keep going forward in faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is love. Love is the answer to everything. If you really know how much and just how I love you, you will never fear anything again and you will have the joy that no one can take from you.

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Hebrews 15:13.
