HOPEFILLED: HOW TO LIVE WITH GREATER HOPE-FUELED EXPENTANCY

HOPEFILLED: BLESSED BECAUSE SHE BELIEVED

READ: LUKE 1

“Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!” {Luke 1:45}

Have you ever received a word for your life? A promise.  And you knew with everything in you it was from God.

And then time just kept ticking on and on and on and that word from the Lord became a distant memory and didn’t come to fruition.  The longer you waited the more doubt would creep in, convincing you that maybe you didn’t really hear the Lord as clearly as you thought? Or maybe it wasn’t even God at all?

“Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations,” {Deuteronomy 7:9, ESV}

God’s ways are not  often ours. And even though more time passes then we would like sometimes; the truth is that God keeps His promises and fulfills His Word every time! Believe it!

Sarah was promised a child and it was fulfilled.

Ruth was promised redemption and it was fulfilled.

These woman received fulfillment long after {I’m sure} they had hoped but the truth remained; God fulfilled His promises to them!

Keep on, keeping on!

Waiting is never fun and long season of waiting is even worse but when we wait believing God will fulfill all He has promised we wait with greater hope-fueled expectancy!  A waiting that isn’t spent watching the clock or counting down the days, instead it’s a waiting fueled by the confidence that the thing we are waiting for…ya, it will happen!

May you be blessed today with greater hope-fueled expectancy for the completion of all God has promised to you!
