HOPE WAITS ...
ANTICIPATES... HOPE IS REAL...
HOPE HAS AN APPOINTMENT....
Though the fig tree may not blossom,
Nor fruit be on the vines;
Though the labor of the olive may fail,
And the fields yield no food,
Though the flocks may be cut off from the fold,
And there be no herd in the stalls --
Yet I will joy in the God of my salvation. Hab. 3:17-19
Bethlehem's promise; "the hopes and fears of all these years are met in Thee tonight".
The birth of Jesus in Bethlehem brought an end to the fears and gave mankind hope.
A hope for today and a hope for tomorrow. A hope beyond where we have been.
Yet ~ we rejoice in GOD who is our salvation.
And hope does not disappoint; because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. "For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man, though perhaps for a good man someone would dare even to die. "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
The prophet Micah said; "But as for me, I will look to the Lord and confident in Him I will keep watch; I will wait with hope and expectancy for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me."
There is an appointed time for all things under heaven.
Isaiah 40:25-31~ But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength,
They shall mount up with wings like eagles. They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
God has your appointed time. WAIT for HIM! He does not disappoint!
