Words of Hope

Words of Hope

What kind of words cause you to rise to a challenge? The exact words may differ from person to person, but typically they can be categorized as words of hope, encouragement and belief. When we hear trusted friends and associates verbalize their faith in us, those words continue to ring deeply in the well of our souls. They echo back to us long past the moment when they were uttered, becoming a source of ongoing encouragement and motivation. Jesus believes in you today; let His voice drown out the voice of discouragement with words of hope. Take courage and be strong!

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.—Psalm 43:5

Prayer: God, I look to You today. I place my hope in You. Speak hope to my soul today through Your Word, through Your Spirit. I come in the name of Jesus, the hope of the world, amen.
