Supernaturally inspired HOPE: a reflection about the Secret of Prayer

Yesterday I was nearly overwhelmed with a sense of HOPE. I don’t even know what specifically I felt hopeful about, but rather, I felt a clear and powerful presence of GOD around me, and a profound sense of hope that something very good, very wonderful, very excellent would show itself very soon.

This new Hope helped me to understand at a new, deeper level the scripture:

“Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)

Secret of Prayer

There are many secrets about prayer. Many seek to understand the power of prayer and to access it. As I was engulfed by this profound sense of Hope, I realised:

Faith = Hope + Love.

I’ve had an insight into the power of Hope as it relates to Faith. When Hope is full, it brings with it Faith to believe in all that is possible with GOD. Praying with Faith, with Hope and a pervading sense of Love, will bring breakthrough.

I leave you to meditate on this. If you discover you agree, do let me know:)

And if it changes your prayer life or increases breakthrough, let me know…. and any other prayerful person you come across. We need to be praying the Father’s will, the Father’s prayers. Then His kingdom will come!

May I leave you with another Mystery to unravel?

“And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” (1 Corinthians 13:13)

 

Shalom and Blessings.

What brings Life: a reflection

Love. Joy. Peace.

These are life-giving states of being. When I am full of love, I bring love to others.
When I am full of the Joy of my Lord, I emanate joy and others can catch it.

When I walk in God’s Shalom – His peace which passes all understanding – I offer peace to others.

Those things which bring life to us, when shared, bring life to others.

I’m realising, as I allow myself to surrender to what comes along my path, that I have more peace, because I’m surrendered to the unfolding events of the day. I have more joy, because within me is hope, strength and a rejoicing in the Lord who gives me my breath. And I have more love, because I am “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14) and that my soul knows very well.

I am loved for who I am, not for what I do; that is satisfying and an encouragement that reaches out to others, both naturally and supernaturally.

Love. Joy. Peace. To be received and to be shared. Hallelujah!
