CATCHING FIRE

hunger-games-full-cast

Catching fire is more than hunger games. It’s being a light and hope that leads the way for others to pursue victory. Are you a catcher of fire? Do you present others with hope for the future? Is your presence one filled with hope and confidence in God or do you pour on the doubt and despair?

The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is a living God determined to save his people. He has promised to answer prayer and reveal his secret to the righteous. He is a consuming fire. His eyes are like flames of fire. If you catch his fire you will be like hot coals warming hearts around you.

Do not allow the cold news of homocide and suicide to persuade you to believe that God is sleeping or does not care. You know he delivers and sets free. You know this earth is not the believer’s home. You know that victory over sin, death and disease will be won. You know that catching fire is contagious.

You also know there is strange fire that should not be entertained by the believer in Jesus. This is not the fire from the Lord, but a pseudo fire. The purpose of which is to deceive. How do you tell the difference? Any spirit that confesses not that Jesus came in the flesh is not of God.

The difference is in the name Jesus. Catch this fire and be the hope for others to see and enjoy.

PUSH LOVE OUT!

love, Jesus Christ
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:12-13).

“Hope” – the missing key?

Staring Without Moving by Martin Gommel, on Flickr

Hope is an earnest expectation of what we desire. 
It is, for many, the missing key!

HOPE an acronym:

Hears God’s Word that…
Opens our eyes to the…
Plans He has for us, to…
Energise our Faith.

Biblical hope stems from what God is telling us will come to pass.

So, how does hope work?

Hope paints a picture on our heart’s of what we are thinking and meditating upon. In other words, for what we are longing for. That’s where the power is – in the imagination of our heart! (Which is also where the power for evil, failure and death is!)

For as he thinks in his heart so is he” (Prov. 23:7)

The Bible is full of promises. If that were not the case then we would have no hope; or at least no positive hope.

We would, instead be meditating on failure, poverty and disaster, which is exactly what we would get. But Christ died that we might have life and that we might have it more abundantly. (John 10:10) So we choose life!

This is not just wishful thinking, like a mere complement. This is actively and purposefully seeing ourselves as God sees us, by reading what the Bible say’s about us. It is about taking the Word of God and actively meditating on it until we know and see in our heart what God promises. For example, you may like to meditate on the following scriptures:

“I am above only and not beneath…” “I am more than a conquerer…”
“I am blessed with very spiritual blessing in Heavenly places…”

So, Why is it so important to get all fired up about hope?

Because it is Biblical hope that stokes the fire’s of faith.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Heb. 11:1)

When we have our hope as an earnest expectation of grace’s future accomplishments, then faith comes into action and brings about the thing we hope for. Faith requires Hope! And hope does not disappoint!
