Hopes Finest Hour

 The darkest hour is often right before the dawn. The problem with darkness is that it can be frightening and hard to see your way in it. We had a guest speaker at church this past Sunday who shared about Mary’s trip to the tomb…while it was still dark. We know how the story of Jesus death and resurrection ends but she did not have that benefit. It was a dark and hopeless hour for her, until she heard Him call her name. In His presence hope was restored.

 

 This is what I’m learning about hope:

1) To know Jesus is to know everlasting hope. Hope, like His presence, is tangible.

2) The thief will always try to steal away hope.

3) Jesus will always bring hope to any situation, no matter how hopeless it might be.

 Hope is a big, huge, gigantic deal. It’s how we can put our foot on the floor when we wake and how we can shut our eyes at night. It’s not dependant on circumstances, but on the fact that our God breathes into our circumstances. Our darkest hour can be hopes finest hour.

Micah 7:7

 But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, fill us with your everlasting Hope today. Teach us to protect and guard your presence in our lives and to hope without wavering. Let us bring hope to hopeless situations, and offer the hope of Jesus to those who are searching.

  1. it’s interesting that we hear a lot of teaching on Faith, and Love, but Hope somehow gets overlooked…hmm BTW I heard it, “It’s always darkest just before it goes pitch black.”
