By [Brother Chris Omoregbee]
The hope call series -meant in giving hopes to lost souls, showing Christ light in darken hearts, alleviating faith crises and reminding of Christ endless love and mercy. Totally based on scriptural reference.
A help in building faith during pestilence.
“Hope call” – The last of and final gift in Christianity.
4 Accept whatever happens to you, and be patient when you suffer humiliation,
5 because gold is tested with fire, and acceptable people are tested in the furnace of humiliation.
6 Trust him, and he will help you; make your ways straight, and hope in him.
7 You who fear the Lord, wait for his mercy, and don’t turn aside or else you might fall.
8 You who fear the Lord, trust him, and you won’t lose your reward.
9 You who fear the Lord, hope for good things, for unending joy and mercy.
10 Look at the people from long ago and see: Who trusted in the Lord and was put to shame? Or who remained firm in godly fear and was left behind? Or who called upon the Lord, and the Lord overlooked him?
11 After all, the Lord is compassionate and merciful; he forgives sins and rescues people in a time of hardship.
12 How terrible it will be for cowardly hearts and idle hands and for a sinner who sets foot upon two paths.
13How terrible it will be for the timid heart. Because it doesn’t trust, therefore it won’t be protected.
14 How terrible it will be for you who have lost your stamina. What will you do when the Lord comes for his inspection?
Hope in Christ;
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
*Hope for Peace
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
*Hope in Christ Jesus
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
“I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below – indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Rom. 8:38,39)
“The Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; He will save us.” (Isa. 33:22)
“Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth; break forth, O mountains, into singing! For the Lord has comforted his people and will have compassion on his afflicted.”
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
—2 Timothy 1:7
For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways…
When I tried to understand all this,
it troubled me deeply
till I entered the sanctuary of God;
then I understood their final destiny.
How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.
May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
Hope for Joy;
For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.
Hope in the LORD
1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
7 The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
8 Come and see what the Lord has done,
the desolations He has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease
to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; He burns the shields with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
11 The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Hope for Trust;
Psalm 121: 1-8
1. I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
3. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5. The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
7. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
8. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
Hope for Guidance;
1. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 4. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
*Hope for Protection
The Lord will keep you from all harm — he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore (Psalm 121:7-8 ).
But now, this is what the Lord says — he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze” (Isaiah 43:1-2 ).
*Hope for Strength
Sustain me as You promised, that I may live; let me not be ashamed of my hope (Psalm 119:116).
Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord (Psalm 31:24 ).
Let us continue to hold firmly to the hope that we confess without wavering, for the one who made the promise is faithful (Hebrews 10:23)
*Hope for Direction
But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me (Micah 7:7 ).
Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long (Psalm 25:5 ).
Surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off (Proverbs 23:1)
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).
*Hope for Comfort
Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love (Psalm 33:1)
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 ).
*Let Love Lead.
Say short prayer; LORD
You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word (Psalm 119:114 ). Amen..
