Wait for hope to appear……


THOUGHT OF THE DAY.

God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits, 

to the woman who diligently seeks. 

It’s a good thing to quietly hope, 

quietly hope for help from God. 

It’s a good thing when you’re young to stick it out

through the hard times. 

When life is heavy and hard to take, go off by yourself.

Enter the silence. Bow in prayer. Don’t ask questions:

Wait for hope to appear. Don’t run from trouble. Take

it full-face. The “worst” is never the worst. 

Why? Because the Master won’t ever walk out and fail 

to return. If He works severely, He also works tenderly. 

His stockpiles of loyal love are immense. 

He takes no pleasure in making life hard, in throwing 

roadblocks in the way: 

Lamentations 3:25, 36

 

What an amazing passage of scripture. There is so much to take

from it. What stood out for me was this verse that said,

wait for hope to appear

A lot of us have abandoned hope because what we were

trusting for didn’t come to pass.

We thought God abandoned us. But the word is very clear,

‘wait for hope to appear’…..

 

When all hope is gone, wait for hope to appear.

When life is hard, wait for hope to appear.

When trouble comes, wait for hope to appear.

Wait for hope to appear!

No matter how bad things seem, wait for hope to

appear.

The word is very clear:

 

“It’s a good thing to quietly hope,

quietly hope for help from God.”

 

We can hope because the Lord will never walk out on us,

He will never fail to return to us, the word tells us.

 

Hope can return. I may have given up and lost hope but

it can return! I will wait for hope to appear. God will not

let me down.

Don’t abandon hope, instead wait for it to appear!

Amen

  1. Man, do I need this Word today!! Thanks for the message! Been going through some discouragement lately while waiting for God to show up. But my pastor preached on Ruth yesterday and the Lord is reminding me He is working out my opportunity for praise in ways I can’t see right now. Thanks again! God bless!

  2. Hi Rolain: I’m not sure we have to WAIT for hope to appear. Christ is our hope and the Holy Spirit lives within us so it’s ALWAYS there. Maybe I’m reading this wrong. Anyway, I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving.

    • Hi Sue….
      Thank you for sharing that. Christ is our hope! Thanks for making that clear to me….
      We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Africa but I was still thankful! I hope you had a great thanksgiving!
