"Therefore, I will now allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak tenderly to her. From there I will give her her vineyards, and make the Valley of Achor a door of hope" (Hosea 2:14-15).
There's hope in every valley. There's always a way back home no matter how far we've gone. Even in the wilderness of our discontent or disobedience, You keep reaching out to us, keep speaking to us, keep calling us to come and embrace Your mercy and grace.
It's "from there" - from wherever our choices have led us or our circumstances have found us that You still offer to give us all we need to sustain us and fulfill us, if we would only humble our pride to admit our need of Your guidance and grace in our lives. You are our Door of Hope - "Christ Jesus our Hope" (1 Timothy 1:1).
Your door is always open; Your hope is always there. You embrace us where we are and provide for all we need. "Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who loved us and through grace gave us eternal comfort and good hope, comfort (our) hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word" (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17). In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
Be empowered, equipped, and encouraged to fulfill your destiny in Christ!Tommy & Sylvia Hays | Messiah Ministries
