Words of Hope from Pastor Steve
Have a Blessed Holy-Day
Remember – He came to be our Savior
Rest:  In the assurance of Immanuel – God with us
Renew: Our commitment to Christ Who Is Lord
Rejoice:  In the peace of the glad tiding He brings to us
Reverence:  Bow in Awe of His Holiness

Hope can start where there is nothing…zip…nada. Before
you know it there is something, even something beautiful and
great. When you have hope the substance is already there. You
just need to activate your faith and move forward in obedience to
God’s promises. Where there is hope there will soon be some
evidence of that hope and the change it will effect in any given
reality. The day we awaken to hope is the day we move closer to
attaining what we believe could be and should be and will be as the
evidence of our faith and the substance of the things we have been
hoping for. Hope never disappoints. Be surprised! Be energized
Live In hope! -slg

 

Phil 3:12, 14 – Press On
Press upward when the world is pushing you downward.
Reverse the curse of the world’s pressure and relieve the stress by looking forward, not behind or sideways but straight ahead.
Ps. 42:5, 11 “Why are you cast down, O my soul?  And why are you disquieted within me;  Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance.”
Remember, you can hold on because it is Christ who is holding on to you:  Phil 3:12; Romans 8:37, 39; John 10:28
The greatest force in your life is this:  “Christ in you, the hope of glory.”  Col. 1:27
