The Oil Of Joy - Invest in Hope
5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
Investing in hope can be painful but it produces anticipation which attracts opportunities (Felicia T. Scott). Hope which comes from the word is the pathway for opening our spiritual ears. There are many people who have closed their ears because of painful experiences. They heard many negative words directed at them during their childhood which hurt their spirit, so they have shut down that gateway. But today is the time to remove the ear plugs. Let's pray aloud now: Father, I thank You that Your word is preached to me daily. I remove every spiritual ear plugs right now in Jesus Name. I soak my ears in the blood to cover me from any past words which will come against me. I receive my healing with thanksgiving in Jesus Name. Amen.
Now that the plugs are removed the word of God will start to have an effect on us again. Initially some of the words will bring painful memories. But if we press on by listening to the word of God it will dominate our souls to fill it with hope. And will wipe out the effects of the other words so we can hear God clearly every time.
HOPE CLEANSES OUR SOUL TO RECEIVE GOOD NEWS FROM GOD
Prayer: Father, through You also I have obtained my introduction by faith into this grace in which i stand; and I exult in the hope of Your glory in Jesus Name. Amen.
( Romans 5:2 paraphrased )
HAPPY NEW YEAR: HAVE HOPE IN THE YEAR 2017
