A House of Hope

But Christ is faithful as a Son over God’s house. And we are His house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast. – (Hebrews 3:6)

 

When we invite Christ to be the Lord of our life, His Holy Spirit comes and dwells in us, making our heart His home. He is faithful to remain present, always. In return, we are asked to take courage and hold onto the hope of all that He has promised, and to speak the truth, which we may proudly share with all who are willing to hear. He is faithful, always; so we too, should be the same.

 

This heart is Your home,A House of Hope

may You rule and reign;

develop the good,

remove the disdain.

Help me hold courage,

hope in what is true;

peace in Your promise,

so much more of You.

May from my mouth flow,

abundance of heart;

that You grow in me,

all that You impart.

Lord, be glorified,

from this house of mine;

may darkness be gone,

and Your love light shine.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You come and dwell in us when we invite You in. Thank You that You keep watch, and protect us. Thank You that You grant us courage and the capacity to be faithful in the hope we have been given in You. Forgive us for our fearfulness and our lack of faith, and grow in us all that we are lacking. Teach us to be courageous in You, and may many come to know the hope that is available in You as a result. Let our love be a reflection of Your love for us. Be exalted, O God, as we courageously boast of the hope we hold in You. Amen.
