SPRING FORTH NOW
For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
On this day we call Good Friday, Christ suffers unspeakable agony and death and for any onlooker, His outcome looks hopeless with no expectation of good, even Christ Himself cried “my God, my God why hast thou forsaken me,” never-the-less He gave up the ghost to Soar. In order for us to rise high, be maintained in our rise and increase rapidly in the fulfillment of God’s promises, we must see and seize opportunities that may not always be visible to our naked eye and/or appears to be an experience in which we are abandoned by God. It is our ability to see through the clutter of our real life experiences to seize God’s opportunities for us to Soar, requiring us to have hope, expectation that is far beyond what we see in our experiences to that which aligns with God’s promises, His Word for our lives. Our experiences are catalysts to draw out God’s Spirit within us which produces hope, expectations which, if we choose to see and seize opportunities, uncovers and equips us with gifts and abilities God deposited within us, preparing us for what our journey would be to overcome. We have been saved by hope modeled by Christ on Calvary; enduring a process in which the expectation is that on the third day the temple which had been destroyed will be raised up again and it was. Although the process of Calvary gave no earthly indication of a Resurrection morning, we now know that deliverance does not hinge on what the process looks like but instead on our endurance, the pressing forward toward the expectation, hope. God is faithful and will not allow His Word, calling to go undone but will accomplish what He intends and as you have hope, expectation for the fulfillment of His promises you can Reframe Your Issues and press forward to the higher calling and Soar in God’s promises fulfilled in your life!
