Word of the Day... April 15, 2014....

For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans 15:4

I am so glad that when I read scriptures like this one I know that the promises are true and my hope is secure.  These promises are the quiet confidence. It is a supernatural certainty. When the Bible speaks of hope, it is not the hope of this world. Rather, it is something altogether different. In fact, the Greek and Hebrew words that translate to "hope" speak of certainty. In the Bible, the word "hope" means a strong and confident expectation.

We get that hope from the Lord Himself and the Word of God.  This is a lasting hope that gives me assurance each day!

How does our faith and hopes get stronger? Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God. Our faith also gets stronger when we are tested. It is during those times that no matter how hard life gets we can stand on these scriptures and the Lord will carry us through the trial.  When He does we grow stronger in Him and His Word. He is our refuge and our strength in every storm.

Of course, you don't have to build your faith on what I tell you.  Try it yourself.  Trust in the Lord and stand on His Word and then wait upon the Lord.  He will keep His promise and lead you into His joy, love and light. I hope you have a Simply Heavenly day.  God bless you!!! ♥♥♥
