Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word. Especially in large doses. That’s why I’m so thankful for PRISM Topics – the power of God’s Word on a single subject. God said, “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” It’s not just a new or different thought, it’s a lobotomy of your thinking. An overdose, and exchange of the old for the new. It requires large doses, and continuation. Renewing means active and ongoing. Praying that you will ask God today – what PRISM Topic He wants to change you with through His Word by the Holy Spirit. Maybe the PRISM Topic - Hope. Have you ever lost hope? Have you ever been low on hope? Have you ever felt a little discouraged, like you’re spinning your wheels, or wondering if things would ever turn around, or get better? Whether it’s worth all the effort, for seemly so little a result? You need hope! And also wisdom. There are different kinds of hope. Misplaced hope or false hope won’t help you. Like a temporary sedative it soon fades. But God offers a sure hope based on eternal unchangeable truths in Jesus Christ. Hope - The joyful expectancy of a good outcome. A desire of something good, with the expectation of obtaining it, that it’s not only possible, but confident that somehow, some way – it’s coming. Based on what? The Love and Promise of God. That is a sure hope. If you know God loves you, He has good for you, He has a purpose for your life that He will fulfill in you, and wisdom for you along the way! Then hope isn’t a pipe dream, it’s what God has for you! So how do you get some? #1 Set the LORD always before you. - Increase the time spent in His presence and shorten the intervals. Maybe once every day instead of once in a year or month or every once in a while. Maybe three times a day, like Daniel. Maybe even constantly, like David. Psalms 16:8-9 I have set the LORD always before me, because he is at my right hand, I will not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body will also rest in hope. Ephesians 1:18 – I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order to know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints and is incomparably great power for us who believe. When you set the LORD always before you – your eyes are opened to His power, beyond your predicament, or limitations. He has none. Romans 12:12 – Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Praying that you will review today the rest of the PRISM Topic – Hope – so you can fully walk in what God has paid for, and called you to.
Love you all,
