SUPERNATURAL HOPE (1Cor.13:13)

HOPE CAN BE LIKE A DIVINE VISION OF WHAT GOD WILL DO – LIKE MANY OF GOD'S GIFTS, IT DEFEATS FEAR BUT, MOST IMPORTANTLY, ONCE YOU HAVE GOD’S HOPE, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH IT?

I HAVE EXPERIENCED HOPE IN MY LIFE WHEN IT SEEMED ALL WAS LOST BUT THEN, WITH PRAYER, "HOPE" ENTERED THE SCENE AND I HAD A SUPERNATURAL SENSE OF RESOLVE... 

A YOUNG MOTHER WAS HEADING INTO SURGERY TO TAKE THE BABY PREMATURELY BECAUSE OF VERY SERIOUS PHYSICAL PROBLEMS. HER BABY WAS VERY SMALL, PROGNOSIS WAS GRIM BUT AFTER WE PRAYED TOGETHER, "HOPE" ENTERED THE ROOM.  SHORTLY AFTER WE PRAYED, THIS VERY-TINY BABY CAME TO A SIDE ROOM WHERE THE FATHER AND I WERE WAITING AND SO WE PRAYED AGAIN.  THEN, THE "HOPE" WE HAD ALREADY RECEIVED WAS VALIDATED AS GOD ANSWERED OUR PRAYERS BECAUSE SEVERAL DOCTORS WENT TO WORK DRAINING FLUID AND OPERATING…   WEEKS LATER THE BABY WAS HOME WITH MOM AND DAD, HEALTHY AND NORMAL.

JESUS TOLD THE STORY OF THE HOPELESS VICTIM OF A VIOLENT CRIME WHO WAS LEFT FOR DEAD AND, TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, MANY PASSERS BY WERE, EVIDENTLY, TOO WRAPPED UP WITH THEIR OWN LIVES TO GIVE AID TO THIS HURTING PERSON – ENTER "HOPE" – IN THE FORM OF A COMPASSIONATE NEIGHBOR.  HELP WAS GIVEN AND A LIFE WAS SAVED.

WHAT IS A BELIEVER’S FINEST HOUR?  THE DAY YOU BECOME HOPE TO THE HURTING.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF ALL OF GOD’S GIFTS IF NOT TO BE SHARED WITH OTHERS?

LUKE 6:38 REVEALS THE WORDS OF OUR LORD, "GIVE AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU" BUT THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT MONEY, IT'S ABOUT THE MANY GOOD THINGS WE CAN DO FOR OTHERS...   

THEREFORE, BE SOMEONE’S HOPE TODAY BY FOLLOWING THE WORDS OF CHRIST, "FREELY YOU HAVE RECEIVED - FREELY GIVE."
