Monday's Message of Hope

A Living Hope!
Monday, August 9, 2021 by Penelope Kaye

Hello, dear friend

As I sat down to write, the phrase “living hope” came to mind, and I knew Holy Spirit wanted to focus on the scripture from 1 Peter:

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead . . . (1Peter 1:3, NKJV)

While hope leads to excitement and anticipation of something good ahead, too often we can experience hope deferred. Unanswered prayers. Unchanging circumstances. Endless waiting. What we hope for becomes dimmer, and eventually our hearts become sick. (Proverbs 13:12)

Yet, Peter’s exhortation states the opposite. Just as God isn’t dead, despite what the current culture wants to believe, hope isn’t dead either. Through the resurrection of Jesus, hope became alive. How? Because Jesus is our hope, and he ever lives to intercede for us at the right hand of the Father. When we choose to place our earnest expectation in him, our hope can never be deferred. What wonderful knowledge to carry in our hearts and minds!

This week I’m going to make a determined effort to keep my expectation focused on Jesus, my living hope. I hope you do too!

Below are some questions to reflect and/or journal. Feel free to share your thoughts—I would love to hear from you.

  • Do you have areas where hope has been deferred or even died?
  • How will this knowledge affect your prayer life?
  • How will this affect the way you see your circumstances?

Have a week full of hope in Jesus!

Without Jesus I would have no hope - thank you, God, for sending your Son and His example of how to not only hope, but to give, give, give others hope. Help me be a giver like Jesus always and forever!

Hi, Linaya. What a beautiful prayer! I know your life reflects the hope that Jesus gives. Blessings, Penelope Kaye

Yes, I agree that hope is key and this verse leads us to greater faith which pleases God. Perseverance in prayer, with thankful hearts reaps the harvest of our faith to full salvation. (TPT) Waiting on God develops character, and I have lost hope for an answer many times-but " again" I repent,+PLL
