Seventh Day of Advent

HOPE

Though He slay me, yet will I HOPE in Him

Job 13:15a

May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my HOPE, LORD is in you.

Psalm 25:21

We wait in HOPE for the LORD; He is our help and shield.

In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name.

May your unfailing love be with us, LORD, even as we put our HOPE in you.

Psalm33:20-22

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 41:5

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my HOPE come from Him.

Psalm 62:5

Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose HOPE is in the LORD their God.

Psalm 146:5

For I know the plans I have for you,”

declares the LORD,

“plans to prosper you and not to harm you,

plans to give you HOPE and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11

I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall.

I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me.

Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have HOPE.

Lamentations 3:19-21

Be joyful in HOPE, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

Romans 12:12

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!

And that is what we are!

The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him.

Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known.

But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.

All who have this HOPE in Him purify themselves, just as He is pure.

I John 3:1-3

We have completed out first week of Advent.

The candle of HOPE is burning brightly, calling others to come to the ONE who offers HOPE, Jesus Christ.

As we continue our Advent journey we will be watching and waiting with great expectation for Christ’s return.

It will be an active waiting, for we want to be found working when the Master returns.

What is the LORD calling you to do this Advent season?
