Devotion Title: THE CONTEXT OF HOPE:

Hope is born of faith, by way of any number of circumstances. An observation made by the author points to an idea that hope is of the poor… ” hope usually makes its home with the poor…” that “hope eludes the rich and powerful.” Hope is a gift… nonetheless… not a natural occurrence… it is a gift to those God empowers to see a future of grace and renewal. Hope is bestowed upon those who can do nothing more; the powerless, the broken. “To despair is to have nothing.” Hope–>”gift” .. I’ve never thought of hope as being a gift, as prevalent as it has been in my life. Hope is ever-present with me, but times I have found it lacking; were terrible… feeling there would exist no end to my torment, at my own hands…

Verse: 1 Thessalonians 5:8

This whole chapter is very appealing in that, I am regarded (believers) today with another individual and i felt lead to go inside and cease due to ‘nightfall’. I did not feel in my heart that glory was being given to God… many of the verses of 1 Thess. 5 speak of being of the day. “That whether we wake or sleep, we should sleep together with Him.”

1Thessalonians 5:16 —Rejoice Evermore

1 Thessalonians 5:17— Pray without Ceasing

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! Isaiah 52:7(KJV)
