Hope's Inbred Ability

God calls us “prisoners of hope”. (Zeph. 9:12)

If you are a prisoner, there you stay - no leaving.  The privilege to come and go as you please is revoked.

Our God is a God of Hope and we are “prisoners” of that hope.  But, the key is to stay in that place of hopefulness. In the hope-filled place, we will be experientially filled with joy and peace to keep on believing and to keep on abounding in hope.  
Now may the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit~ Apostle Paul, as recorded in Romans 15:13 
STAY in that place of HOPEFULNESS!

Because of Him and Unto Him,

Lovvve this Diane. Yes we are prisoners of hope , We have to trust the Spirit of our everlasting savior. Since you are so annoited, so full of the Spirit , I say that from the privilege of that experience with you.You know the Fruits of not just patience but self kindness n grace are necessary to those days of feeling Imprisonered by that hope. It's frees sometimes like a turtle in a race for something important. We also know the tortoise wins that race. For many different reasons I feel I am the turtle in all areas of my life. Even my walking feels like the turtle, but when Emmanual is there, it makes me taken cared of during this time of hope, and I realize how my Faith walk has has paid off time after time after time after time. I am now praying for many small or bigger miracles in the nxt months. We have to believe to see. HUGGS love to you
