Through Windows of Hope!

Today we will talk of HOPE. Not like a child closing his eyes, and making a wish at Christmas for a new bike to be under the tree. No, Hope that is alive and well and drawing a picture so as to set one's gaze on the prize.

Psa 39:7 And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.
Psa 71:5 For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth.
Psa 71:14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
Psa 119:114 Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.
Psa 119:116 Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.
Psa 130:5 I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.   (Read this again!)

Jer 17:7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.

Lam 3:26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
Act 2:26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
Rom 8:25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.  (Read that again)

Rom 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Col 1:23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

Reading the Word - brings HOPE.  After we've prayed then we picture ourselves being well.  We picture our lost loved ones coming to Christ.  We picture our needs being met.  In picturing it done, our Hope arises and keeps Faith alive.
