Heirs Of Hope

 

We’ve been justified
by His grace

heirs to the hope
of eternal life

though we too
we’re once deceived

now the Spirit’s poured on us
through Jesus Christ.

**********

I am an heir to hope for You are with me.

**********

“For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived . . .”

“But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared “

“not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit “

“whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,”

“that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

Titus 3:3,4,5,6,7. NKJV

My Hope

 

Help me understand
how frail I am

that I might
count my days

placing all
my hope in You

the Lord my God
who saves.

**********

I can pause and consider where my hope lies, for You are with me.

**********

“LORD, make me to know my end, and what is the measure of my days, that I may know how frail I am.”

“Indeed, You have made my days as handbreaths, and my age is as nothing before You; certainly every man at his best state is but vapor.” Selah

“Surely every man walks about like a shadow; surely they busy themselves in vain; he heaps up riches, and does not know who will gather them.”

“And now, LORD, what do I wait for? My hope is in You.”

Psalm 39:4,5,6,7. NKJV

Prisoners Of Hope

 

You’ll no longer live
chained to fear

but hope’s prisoner you’ll
now be

as I restore double
and lift you up

as My banner of great
beauty.

**********

I am a prisoner of hope for You are with me.

**********

“Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope, even today I declare that I will restore double to you.”

“The LORD their God will save them in that day, as the flock of His people. For they shall be like the jewels of a crown, lifted like a banner over His land – “

“for how great is their goodness and how great their beauty.”

Zechariah 9:12,16,17. NKJV

Of The Day

 

We are not
in spiritual darkness

but sons of light
daughters of day

wearing our breastplates
of faith and love

with the confident hope
of the saved.

**********

I have a confident hope and assurance of salvation, for You are with me.

In The Spirit

 

We live and walk
in the Spirit

by which Jesus
set us free

to love and serve
one another

to wait and hope
eagerly.

**********

I can be Spirit led for You are with me.

**********

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”

“For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.”

“For you brethren have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.”

“If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”

No Compare

 

The sufferings of
this present time
won’t be worthy
to compare

with the glory
revealed in us
through Jesus, our hope
our prayer.

**********

The glory of You with me far outweighs my sufferings.

**********

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”

Romans 8:18 NKJV

Rejoice In Hope

 

Before I
was even born

my Jesus died
for me

so I can know
how much I’m loved

having the hope of His
glory.

**********

You are with me and give me hope.

**********

“Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

“But God demonstrates HIs own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Wilderness Of Comfort

 

I shall take from your mouth
names from the past

you shall remember them
no more

bringing you into
the wilderness for comfort

giving you hope’s song
as a door.

**********

You are with me in the wilderness to comfort me and give me hope.

*********

“Therefore, behold, I will allure her,
Will bring her into the wilderness,
And speak comfort to her.”

“I will give her her vineyards from there,
And the Valley of A’chor as a door of hope;
She shall sing there,
As in the days of her youth . . .”

“For I will take from her mouth the names of the Ba’als,
And they shall be remembered by their name no more.”

Hosea 2:14,15,17. NKJV

(My “word” for this coming year is “God with me”.  I started a day early!  🙂 )
