Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23
God demonstrates the depth of His holiness. In tender moments of truth, He places HOPE where it will flourish in the midst of our weakness. He reminds us we are held by the promise of His love. And, in tender moments of truth, He provides strength to sustain us.
None of us are deserving of God’s love. We forget how it feels to admit that we sin. But, God finds the way to remind us; pain welcomes the gift of His grace. It allows us to recognize the need for His mercy and learn how to handle our brokenness.
God will nurture the heart of our wholeness, when we have learned to trust. He will help us find HOPE in the heart of our faith. He will show us how to find comfort in His care and guide us where we see why we are loved. He will lead us to a prayer of praise, when we have realized how lucky we are to be held by Him.
Dear God, You are faithful to know our needs. Forgive us when we forget HOPE is found in You. You are mighty and holy! Only You can do ALL things. Help us examine our hearts and turn from our selfish ways, so we will recognize the power of Your strength and want to love You more. Amen
