ADORING THE GOD WITH A HOPEFUL VOICE
God, we adore you as the God with a Hopeful voice! You are our Good Father that decrees hopeful realities and a hopeful future for us. You don’t negate the challenges, but you are the “Greater than” God, as in Deuteronomy 7:17, you are greater than the nations!
“If you should say in your heart, `These nations are greater than I; how can I dispossess them?'
you shall not be afraid of them; you shall well remember what the LORD your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt.”
We adore you as the God with a Hopeful voice, where every challenge has an answer in You! Incomplete prophesy is seeing the challenges without an answer in You. You are the God of Hope who builds and sustains a hopeful, visionary, Biblical perspective upon a true foundation of hope in who you are, not a negative foundation.
We adore You as the truthful, HOPEFUL, positive, confident God who is summing all things up in Your Son. You speak with the voice of a Third perspective, not that of man or the challenges on the earth, but with Your heavenly, hopeful, redemptive perspective.
You are changing the nature of Christianity to a hope-filled Christianity. Not just a change in the expression of Christianity from self-indulgence to a Sermon on the Mount lifestyle, but You are changing the nature of Christianity, to a hope-filled glorious Christianity.
Your Hopeful voice sought out Lazarus and called Him out of the Grave!

Houses, fields and vineyards will again be bought in this land.
Your voice calls to us and offers us a drink when we are weary. You give us the water that refreshes our hearts!
‘Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you,
"Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water."
He gave her the water that would refresh her heart!
Your hopeful voice calls out to us when we are hiding. You point our how we are valuable to you and restore our identities. You give us things to do that are the right things we can do with you, for you!
"Zaccheus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house."
And he hurried and came down and he received You gladly.
You have Hopeful work for us. We can reinvent ourselves according to Your design and Your plans for us.
“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.”
Hosea 2:14-15- 14 "
Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her.
There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope.
There she will sing as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt.
