We had a women’s conference at church this morning that God used to deliver a message that I needed to hear. It’s always amazing to me (I don’t know why!) how the Holy Spirit speaks to us exactly what we need at a particular time to either encourage or convict us. Anyways, the message was centered around having “hope.”
A few things I got from it:
* we need to be in God’s word to know His covenants and promises that we are to have hope in
* Satan is a liar and tells us all sorts of thing in order to steal our hope away
* Breaking free, and having true freedom in Christ is what gives us ultimate hope.
* Our circumstances don’t steal our hope, it’s our turning away from God in those times that does
I didn’t hear a new message this morning delivered to me, but I heard a clear message that God used to speak into my heart. He brought me on my knees in worship of Him, graciously accepting the freedom and grace He brings for me each day. I am in awe of this God we serve.
