COME HOME...TO HOPE! slt.
A mother set praying, as she always did each morning, bringing so many friends, and family before the Lord in her petitions.
This morning was no different, in that the hopelessness of our present nation was the main focus of her many prayers.
She said, " Lord, you know my heart, You know that I am thankful for all that You give me each and every day.", You know that I come humbly before your throne, even though you tell me I can come BOLDLY before your throne." Hebrews 4:16 "Let us come boldly before the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find help n time of need."
This time, Lord, I ask that you protect YOUR children, The ones that have put their hope and trust in Jesus, that you sweep across our land and show us your power and glory. We are a very needy people in " such a time a this".
Why, can't we just understand that we need to "come home to hope?"
And you, Lord, are that hope. When you formed the heavens and the earth then made man in your own image, then when you provided a way for us to live with you forever by our trust in Jesus your son, that's when we had ALL the hope we need.
I see so many that are troubled, so hopeless, need a friend, ready to give up. But, you Lord are that hope that they need. Many seem to think they can party it away, they have let chains bind them. they buy into the "woke culture". They wait for a new this or a new one to bring them happiness. And some, Lord, don't know what they even want.
May I remind you, Lord, You said," when you saved our soul, cleansed and made us whole, that was your miracle of love and grace. " And you don't go back on your promises. So; I say: Titus 1:2 He is faithful, who cannot lie.
When I am without peace, struggling to find the answers, I know what I need to do.
I pray that you, my friends will do this also, " Come home to hope". The Hope that ONLY Jesus can provide. You will not find it in any other avenue. Only Jesus can satisfy the soul.
