Flying with Thursday's Word by Brenda Smith


Thursday's Word



René Reichelt



HOPE IS HAVING A SURE FEELING THAT WHAT YOU HAVE ASKED FOR WILL COME TRUE. YOUR PRAYERS WILL BE ANSWERED.


When Jesus was born God made it clear that this baby was the one for whom the world had been waiting, and watching and hoping, ever since the first man and woman had been driven out of Eden. A Savior, a deliverer, a king. What joy must have filled Mary and Joseph’s hearts as they looked down at their tiny son, wrapped in blankets, lying in an ordinary manger filled with straw, surrounded by cows and sheep and donkeys. What hope in knowing that this child was the one in whom all of God’s promises would be fulfilled. Knowing that He was the one in whom God’s people would find forgiveness of sins, the one in whom they would find true and lasting peace, the one whose power would establish an eternal kingdom of justice and righteousness. It must have been almost overwhelming, as they considered the awesome responsibility God had given them.

Christianity is a religion of hope. It is a faith that looks forward to the future, to the time when God’s promises will be fulfilled. That was true for God’s people prior to Christ’s birth, as they looked forward to the birth of the promised Messiah; it was true for Mary and Joseph as they looked down at their newborn son, knowing that the time for the fulfillment of God’s promises had finally come, and it’s true of us today as we look forward to the return of Christ. Our faith is a future-focused faith, a religion of what is to come, a religion of hope.

God will prove Himself faithful to you, and that He will not disappoint you. You won’t regret putting your trust and hope in Him.

“Then you will know that I am the LORD; those who hope in me will not be disappointed.”
–((Isaiah 49:23))


“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” – ((Romans 15:13))

FOR WITHOUT HOPE I HAVE NOTHING. GOD IS MY ONLY HOPE – I HOPE IN HIM.

So first we must decipher, is the end user of a covert or overt character. Is this someone that sees their rolex replica sale timepiece as just an accessory and has no interest in functionality? Or is this someone who is the replica watches sale opposite and has no qualms in wearing a less attractive or less fashionable watch? On the flip side, is this someone who cares for replica watches both look and function? Are they willing to compromise on a half way model or is it precision, perfection and divine beauty that breitling replica they strive towards? Firstly, let’s focus on the overt character. To describe this replica watches uk person in one paragraph, I would say they are very fashion conscious and very interested in outer appearances as the fake rolex sale word overt suggests! They may be someone who is outgoing, very social and very aware of their self appearance and how they may be perceived to their peers.
