Topic — Hope: God Has Ropes! [Our Daily Manna ODM Friday, March 23, 2018]
Basic Scriptures Psalm 126:1-6
The word “HOPE” would mean more than a million dollars to a man on dead roll in a prison cell. Bit we begin today’s devotional with a joyful, poetic irony in the book of lamentations. No, we shall not lament in crisis. The name of the book does not describe the message today, which is “hope! Hope! Hope in Hopelessness. “Consider the scriptural poem below as a love note from a distance land:
“It is of the Lord’s mercies, you are not consumed, because his compassion fails not. They are new every morning; great is thy Faithfulness. The Lord is your portion…Therefore will you hope in him. For the Lord will not cast off forever. You must wait for his salvation…..”(Lam 3: 22-26).
Nothing above suggest fear, but HOPE, HOPE and HOPE! So in this New Year 2018, as you travel through this journey of life, keep HOPE alive, no matter how dark the tunnel looks. Weeping may endure for a season but joy cometh in the morning! I prophesy: your morning shall come as a sudden SURPRISE in Jesus name Amen! They that sow in tears shall reap in joy (psa 126: 5).
Hear Desmond Tutu again: hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness,” Yes! Season of darkness come to us all! In the middle of it, the future looks black and bleaks. The temptation to quit is huge. But HOPELESS and IMPOSSIBLE! But with God nothings is Impossible! He has more ropes and ladders and tunnel out of pits than you imagine.
Ask Joseph of what took him from the pit! Ask Daniel on who took him from the lions’ hopeless den! Oh! Wait Pray without ceasing! Keep HOPE alive! Crosse over the river of Babylon and stop weeping there like psalm 126! Forget the pain, or loses of the past! It is not over till it is over!
Hold on because live is a self-fulfillment prophecy of a greater tomorrow! I see your DECORATION as you determine to NEVER QUITE TRUSTING God! Wait and say again, HOPE! HOPE! Wait on the Lord! You will never end up in SHAME! Shout a big Amen and 7 hallelujah now!
