I am your joy and your hope! I am with you and I am for you. I watch over you and I am a passionate and zealous God, not willing for anyone to perish. As you walk with Me and as you look to Me, as you place your hope in Me and look in expectancy to Me, you will not be disappointed. You have cried out in My presence, “Lord, when will it come? When will your promise come?”
Yet, I am calling you to re-invigorate. Strengthen yourself in Me, in My love for you. Strengthen yourself in walking with Me in your daily choices and decisions. Strengthen your brothers and sisters in Christ and see to it that no one falters. Know My heart, the heart of a protective Father. I will lead you in paths of righteousness for My Name’s sake. Your hope in Me will not be cut off.
11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
12 Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees.
13 “Make level paths for your feet,”[a] so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.Hebrews 12:11-13 (NIV)
13 [What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living!
14 Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.Psalm 27:13-14 (AMPC)
For surely there is a latter end [a future and a reward], and your hope and expectation shall not be cut off.Proverbs 23:18 (AMPC)
