30 Days of Praise and Thanksgiving: Day 9

Day 9: God of Hope

And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt. ~ Hosea 2:15 This verse filled my heart with joy this evening as I read it, I had to read it again and yet again. She will sing as in the days of her youth. I’m paraphrasing here but WOW. I don’t know where you are in life right now but things have been a little rough for this sister and this verse filled my spirit with hope. God also once again brought me to Isaiah 61:1-3, “beauty for ashes”, but He promises more than just that. Verse 3 also promises the oil of joy for mourning and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. God’s Word is filled with hope for all of mankind. As an unbeliever, all you have to do is give your heart to Him. As a child of God, He offers a never ending supply of anything you could ever need. You may be in a situation where you can’t see the light, you can’t see an expected outcome. It’s okay, God is working on your behalf in realms you can’t see or even imagine. Trust Him and His timing. . “My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation [is] from him.” ~ Psalm 62:5 If you don’t know Him, there is no better time that right now. You aren’t reading this by mistake, He’s calling your name. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

💛 Thank You Father God for Your never ending hope. 💛

1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD [is] upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to [them that are] bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. ~ Isaiah 61:1-3

Blessed [is] the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. ~ James 1:12

By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of [our] lips giving thanks to his name. ~ Hebrews 13:15

But as for you, ye thought evil against me; [but] God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as [it is] this day, to save much people alive. ~ Genesis 50:20

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose. ~~ Romans 8:28

That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: ~ 1 Peter 1:7

3 Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, ~ 1 Peter 1:3-4
