We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. Romans 8:22–24
Your hope is as alive as Jesus. Hope in anything else but God can be a very dangerous thing. Why? Because sometimes your greatest wounds may be tied to unrealized dreams or unexpected disappointments. Do not allow the world to confuse your reality of hope. God established and secured your hope when he raised his Son. Therefore, your hope is as alive as Jesus.
We thank you for the calling you have set among us and before us. A calling that shall bring us into the greatest seasons of our lives. We thank you that in a hopeless world with formidable problems on every hand, you continue to remind us that our greatest hope is in you and what you are able to do. Thank you for faith that leads us into a promising future. Thank you that, according to your word, all things will work together for good in accordance with your great purpose. We hold confidence that your purpose for our lives exceeds even our greatest expectations of ourselves. Continue to lift us up in the motivation that our eyes have not seen, ear heard or mind conceived what you have in store for us. Remind us that when we are weak, you are strong. Remind us that your compassion towards us overlooks the faults of our past and graces us with inevitable mercy that is new every morning. For this, God, we have hope and we say thank you.
In Jesus’ name.
