God moved so mightily this morning in church. God shared with us through Clinton about hope this morning. I am going to share the scriptures with you in hope that it will bless you as much as it did our body of believers this morning:

1 Cor. 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

What are you putting your hope in? Faith and love are things that most Christians attempt to walk in daily but hope seems to be left behind many times. Hope for the future...hope that our loved ones would be saved...hope for our children...hope for God to move mightily in the body of Christ...Hope that a nation can be rocked and shaken to it's core in such a way that it would be won for Christ...Hope to see the day of our Lord and too look upon his face...

Proverbs 13:12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a hope (longing) fulfilled is a tree of life

If you have no hope then the promises that God has given you can not come forth.

Psalms 42:5 Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God...

Please notice...put your hope in God...not in yourself...your pastor...your not put your hope in man. Man will fail you...only in God can your hope be fulfilled.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, " declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

1 Tim. 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the command of God our Savior and of Christ Jesus our hope...

Jesus is our hope...and the only way to hang onto hope is as follows:

1. Remain in hope by remaining in the spirit (Rom 15:13)

2. Remain in hope if you stand on God's Word (Psalm 119:49)

3. Remain in hope if you praise the Lord (Psalm 42:5)

4. Remain in hope if you rejoice in Christ and what he has done (Rom 12: 12)

I pray that you, reader, have not lost hope. Remember the promises of the Lord and cling to them with all of your might. Ask God to renew your hope for tomorrow...Hope always brings joy...Do NOT get weighed down with the cares of this world. Lift your eyes up to Him and allow him to make your path clear and straight. Do not lose hope...pray now.

Filled with Hope for the NATION of Thailand and for all of my loved ones to live radically for Him,
