The Word of Hope

I can't seem to stop thinking about the power of the Word. The power of the Word coming out of my mouth, the power of the Word being applied to my life, the power of the Word when I just decide to meditate on it and believe in its truth. Look at what David said in Psalms 119 (Just go read all of Psalms 119) Psalms 119:49 Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope. I really like the amplified.

Remember fervently the word and promise to Your servant, in which You have caused me to hope.

Read on to the next verse. This is my comfort and consolation in my affliction; that Your word has revived me and given me life.

David is exclaiming, I HAVE HOPE IN YOUR PROMISES, In Your Word I have been revived, I have been given life.

Check out Romans 15:4. "For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope." THE WORD WILL BRING HOPE INTO YOUR LIFE!!!

And even Romans 10:17 "So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God" THE WORD WILL BRING FAITH INTO YOUR LIFE!!!!

Give God a follower who will put a little bit of faith behind hope in His Word and you've got a recipe for MIRACLES!

Do you see a crazy equation here? It takes hearing the Word to produce faith in the Word. It takes faith in the Word to produce hope. Faith in the hope of the promises (the Word) moves God to see the manifestation of those promises in your life.

So what's your need? Is it something in your emotions, peace, joy, etc? Is it something in your circumstances? A miracle of provision, protection, guidance? Find where God discusses your need in the Word. Find the promises He has for you about those types of situations. Then get that Word deep down in your heart over and over and over again(didn't we just talk about this?) Until the Word begins to produce faith in the hope of His promises!!!

All the answers for life and godliness have been given to us. "His divine power has granted to us ALL THINGS that pertain to life and godliness through the KNOWLEDGE OF HIM who called us to his own glory and excellence by which He has granted to us HIS PRECIOUS AND VERY GREAT PROMISES so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption of the world because of sinful desire" (1 Peter 1:3-4)

Where do we find knowledge of Him?... THE WORD.... Where do we find His precious and great promises?.... THE WORD! Through the Word and the Holy Spirit we have ALL we need! Have you ever asked yourself this question... When Jesus walked the earth He laid down His deity to become like us and yet Jesus still overcame every temptation and attack. How did He do it? With the WORD AND THE HOLY SPIRIT! What do you have available to you? THE WORD AND THE HOLY SPIRIT!!!

The question is.... will you use it? Don't walk into a battle without your weapons. Oh I could keep going, but I'll stop here for now. I've got myself so pumped up I just gotta go get in the Word!!!
