March Letter XXVIII
Greetings of Love, Goodwill, Peace and HolyBliss be unto you in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have received the grace and the empowerment to do extraordinary things for the glory of His Name. See John 14:12-14; Mark 16:17-18.
Today is another opportunity to look at the important subject of hope. We have learned that hope is the joyful expectation of a favorable outcome. Hope is the earnest anticipation of good. Hope is positive expectancy.
Hope is something we need to treasure and guard because it energizes us, dissipates depression and boosts confidence. Hope is the energy of the soul and the strength of the spirit. Being hopeful affects every area of our lives. It determines our behavior and defines our experiences in life. See Proverbs 24:13-14; 23:18.
Why should you be hopeful and expect good things in your life. Number one: Christ is in you. The Bible says Christ in you is the hope of glory. The Christian should never be hopeless or depressed if we really become mindful of who we are in Christ and what He has done in us, what He is doing in us and is going to do through us. See Colossians 1:19; 1:27-29; Philippians 4:13; Romans 15:18-19.
Remember that Christ is the Fullness of God in Bodily Form. This is means that everything that God contains is in Christ. Everything that God is, is available in Christ. You are never without power, strength or resources. Christ in you is committed to your success and breakthrough. See 1 Corinthians 1:24; 2 Corinthians 12:9.
Philippians 4:13 AMPC
I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Whoinfuses inner strength into me; I amself-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].
You cannot be limited as a Christian. With God nothing shall be impossible and God is in you. When God came into you in Christ, your limitations were broken. You have God’s power and ability to you and through you. Difficult situations are the opportunities for the manifestation of your hidden potential.
Every miracle that Christ did in His earthly walk was in response to human need, problem or calamity. Are you facing a challenge or a problem? Are you trapped, discouraged or in despair? Do you think your life is over? No a thousand times no. Let Christ take over. The end of man is always the beginning of God. Man’s difficulty is God’s opportunity. That’s why Christ came: To deliver you from this present evil world. See Galatians 1:3-4; Romans 8:35-39; Isaiah 54:13-17; Philemon 6.
Have faith in the God who lives in you in the Person of the Holy Spirit. You will beat this challenge. You will outlast your storm. Nothing can hold you back. The Greater One is in you. You have more than enough in you. Stop looking at your circumstances. God in you will not quit. You are going over this wall. You are an overcomer. You do not fail. You cannot fail. God will put you over. Selah
