My people, I am the Lord God of HOPE. In me, there is no hopeless situation! I have all wisdom, all might, all power, and I have given all things over to my children. My children are anointed to be my agents of hope in the world. If you are my child, you must partner with my hope.
Like the weary world, you once lived in hopelessness, feeling lost and powerless, but no more! As my agent of hope, you must look at the world around you with the tenacious, expectant eyes of Heaven.
You must reject the greasy film of hopelessness that weighs you down and deadens your perspective. You must not speak hopeless words of despair and death over the world around you. These are the words and thoughts of an enemy, not my words.
I, the Lord, speak LIFE, and you must too!
Activation: Repent of partnering with hopelessness. Renounce it! Command it to leave! Then ask me with tenacity for my hope in your situation, in your relationships, in the world around you, even in the global things you pray over. Ask me for my vision and my perspective and then declare it.
…In those days you were living apart from Christ. You were excluded from citizenship among the people of Israel, and you did not know the covenant promises God had made to them. You lived in this world without God and without hope.Ephesians 2:12 (NLT)
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead!1 Peter 1:3 (NKJV)
15 Now when the attendant of the man of God had risen early and gone out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was circling the city. And his servant said to him, “This is hopeless, my master! What are we to do?”
16 And he said, “Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are greater than those who are with them.”2 Kings 6:15-16 (NASB20)
