Today we adore our God, and His forgotten face of Hope.
You are the ISAIAH 45 “GOD OF HOPE” being revealed. We exalt You and love this understanding of you as our God of Hope who takes us FROM having eternal security TO Jesus being our resurrection and the life today!
I will go before you and level the mountains;
I will break down the gates of bronze and cut through the bars of iron.
I will give you the treasures of darkness and the riches hidden in secret places,
so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel,
who calls you by name.
You are the GOD OF LOVE that secures our hearts –but You are also the GOD OF HOPE, that advances our hearts into our divine destinies by knowing that you hope and believe in us.
Yet I am confident I will see the LORD’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living.
Like David in Psalm 27:13, we put our confidence in this – that we will see Your goodness in the land of the living. We will know and experience you, God of Hope, today! We are filled with living hope that you are:
Our John 10:10 God of Hope who came and died for Your people so that they would have abundant life.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
We live in this Hope for life now – living abundant lives filled with hope because of who you are. • For our families • For our churches • For our cities and nation.
You are our HOSEA 2:14-15 God of Hope that turns our valleys of challenges into doors of hope.
Therefore, behold, I will allure her
and lead her to the wilderness,
and speak to her tenderly.
There I will give back her vineyards
and make the Valley of Achor
into a door of hope.
There she will respond as she did
in the days of her youth,
as in the day she came up out of Egypt.
You are our answer! You are the Door of Hope! • For our financial challenges – you are our Door of Hope. For our businesses and homes – you are the answer in Hope!
You are the Acts 1 & 2 God of Hope who took Your disciples from worry and fear about their futures and callings to having hope and certainty in Your power in and through them. You did it for them and you’ll do it for us today.
So when they came together, they asked Him, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?”
Jesus replied, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by His own authority.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you,
and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
You’ll advance our hearts and give us hope for our futures in You. • You’ll give us hope for our dreams – for dreams to come alive again! • You’ll give us hope for our families – that we will be all we were ever called to be in you! • You’ll give us hope for our sons and daughters – for inheritance and lineage to come.
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery,
which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
We say like David in Psalm 25:3 that "No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame." • We place our hope in you, knowing that Your hope will never disappoint. • We placer our hope in you, knowing that we will never be put to shame.
We adore you Romans 15:13 "God of hope who fills us with all joy and peace as we trust in him" – who causes us to "overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
We wait in hope for you, our Psalm 33:20 "hope, help and shield."
But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God;
I trust in the loving devotion of God forever and ever.
We will sings praises to you forever, like David did in Psalm 52:8-9 and put our hope in Your name, God of Hope, for your name is good. We will praise you together!
We adore you!
