I heard Jesus speak this to me as I was praying some big prayers and believing for miracles.
Hope does not not have a deadline it has a divine time.
Oh, how I needed to hear that. I know what it is to pray for healing, provision, deliverance and even the desires of your heart that your soul long’s for and your heart beats about.
To have a promise given years ago; only to watch and wait…Pray and believe…Hope and hope some more.
My understanding of hope has been expanded this past year! My #daretohopeagain word of the year where Jesus said, go dip in the water one more time. Draw the arrow back one more time. Look for the chariots one more time. Daring to hope one more time….
And guarding my heart against disappointment. One more time.
It was my goal to not grow discouraged and let my hope fade this year. It was my hope to not lose hope.
I understand how Ishmael’s are made. That waiting period is THE WORST!
Hope has no expiration date or shelf life! Hope is eternal. It is Always working. Ever inspiring and motivating us to fix our eyes on the prize. Set our hearts like flint and steady on towards those wonderful promises we are hoping for and believing in!
So I ask you today, what are you standing for and hoping in?
Has heaven given you a sneak peak of things to come? Have you seen the trailer or the preview of your promises and now your waiting for the feature film?
Check out this verse in the amplified “Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].”
Hebrews 11:1 AMP
Did you catch that part? Divinely guaranteed!!!!!
Friends, let’s take a page from Abraham, Joseph, David and Hannah; and trust the process towards the promise. Let’s us not grow weary in our well doing. Let’s us not tap our foot and check our watches and instead stand firm and see!
Painful? Yes, at times.
Worth it? 💯 yes!
