A Confident Hope

Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.

~ Romans 12:12 [NLT]

This verse is a helpful nugget of guidance to get us through dark times. As a believer in Christ we have hope and not just a random hope, but a confident hope. We can confidently believe in a time when hurt, pain, and sorrow will end. It’s comforting to know amidst all of your despair and discouragement there is one thing you can be sure of which is that it will come to an end. 

Jesus Lives

Listen to Me! Thus you can live in peace and safety, unafraid. Listening to Me is the way of wisdom. I make wisdom available to everyone who is willing to hear Me. Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares—proclaiming the truth openly. Those who ignore her message will cry out for mercy on the day of judgment, but it will be too late. Now is the time to listen!

It is vital for you to hear Me accurately and consistently. If you hear Me inaccurately, you may find yourself worshiping a false god: practicing idolatry. The best safeguard against this deadly deception is studying My Word and meditating on it. As you do so, Scripture takes root and flourishes within you—changing the way you think. My Word is living and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword—able to accomplish great things in you.

Listening to Me consistently is both a discipline and a matter of the heart. The more convinced you are of My Love for you, the more motivated you are to listen. I have deep, unfailing Love for all who know Me as Savior-God. Look up to Me through eyes of faith, and see My Face shining on you with loving approval. Listen to Me, for this is the way of Peace.

All who listen to me shall live in peace and safety, unafraid.
~ Proverbs 1:33 [TLB]

Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares; . . . in the gateways of the city she makes her speech: . . . “How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge?”
~ Proverbs 1:20–22

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
~ Hebrews 4:12 [NKJV]

Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love.
~ Psalm 31:16

Daily Prayer Guide

The heart which boldly faces death  
Upon the battlefield, and dares  
Cannon and bayonet, faints beneath  
The needle-points of frets and cares.  
The stoutest spirits they dismay—  
The tiny stings of every day.  
  
Ah! more than martyr’s aureole  
And more than hero’s heart of fire,  
We need the humble strength of soul  
Which daily toils and ills require.  
Sweet patience, grant us, if you may  
An added grace for every day.
– Adelaide A. Procter

Sunset and evening star,  
And one clear call for me!  
And may there be no moaning of the bar,  
When I put out to sea.
– Alfred Tennyson

Prayer

My Father, I pray that I may not be dismayed over life, and its trifles. Help me to master difficulties great and small, and give me patience through all until I reach the untroubled way. Amen.

Evening Prayer

SPENDING TIME WITH THE LORD 
Luke 10:38-42

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you will understand what is important in your relationship with Christ – it is not what you do for Him that matters, but how you listen and spend time with Him. I pray that you will not worry and be upset about the chores you must accomplish. I pray that you will choose what is more important in this life – cultivating a close, intimate relationship with the Lord. May you spend more time at His feet, listening to what He wants to share with you. May you concern yourself only with obeying what He wants. Choose what is more important in this life, and it will not be taken away from you.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
