Hope’s Cord

 

Like Rahab’s scarlet cord
hanging from her window

I am your lifeline
of hope

no matter your past
or how messy life is

reach for Me for I
will hold.

*********

You establish a lifeline of hope for me.

“Now swear to me by the LORD that you will be kind to me and my family since I have helped you. Give me some guarantee that when Jericho is conquered, you will let me live, along with my father and mother, my brothers and sisters, and all their families . . .”

“Before they left, the men told her . . . ‘When we come into the land, you must leave this scarlet rope hanging from the window through which you let us down. And all your family members – your father, mother, brothers, and all your relatives – must be here inside the house . . .’ “

” ‘I accept your terms, ‘ she replied. And she sent them on their way, leaving the scarlet rope hanging from the window.”

Joshua 2:12,13,18,21

Hiding The Spies

“And as soon as we heard these things our hearts melted; neither did there remain any more courage in anyone because of you, for the Lord your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath.” Joshua 2:11

Rahab made important decisions that day. She hid the men of Israel, believing in the mightiness of their God. And she asked for the lives of her family to be saved.

Lord, as we believe You and hide Your word in our hearts, we are driven to ask that the lives of our families be saved. And here’s a simple poem . . .

May They Be Saved

Hide them, Lord, and protect them
from the evil one who prowls

draw them out and to You
from their usual crowd

soften their hearts and open their eyes
to You crucified out of love for them

help them confess and believe
You are the Son of God and man.
