Hello again my friends!
I hope you are all being blessed this blog and the songs that we choose for service.
And I pray that this particular song would do just that for you!
Check it out!
Hope is a wonderful awe-inspiring thing. It is a weapon on which we, as sons and daughters of christ, can pierce the darkness that likes to surround itself around us. It is a key that unlocks any door, it is a compass that leads us straight and true. It is our motivation, our salvation, our strength in weakness. Singing a song that reminds us of these things can be very powerful and also is very necessary. We all have trials, fears, worries, concerns and obstacles to overcome. In fact, this is a part of the life we live. We WILL have to go though such times. I think our natural reaction to these circumstances is why… Why would God do this to me?? But that is a most dangerous perspective. By taking on that perspective we lose sight of hope. We lose sight of the very thing that will help us! That will pull us through. We turn God into the enemy when he is truly our faithful friend. Thinking this is exactly what Satan wants you to think. He wants you to stumble in the darkness with NO HOPE and he wants you to stay there! Don’t let that happen! Don’t let your mind fall into this perverse backwards thinking. Look to Jesus! Look to hope! Sing loud from the top of your lungs that Hope is on your side! Hope is what will pull you through! Your hope is in Christ Jesus who has overcome the world!! This hope is on your side.
Man! I can’t wait to sing this song with you all!
