Living in The Power of Hope
is the topic during service today
a timely message in my recent state of turmoil and distress
I am reminded to humble myself
and come to the One who brings comfort
God resists the proud
but gives grace to the humble
A lot of times, our distress is brought about by pride
trying to put on "God mode" when we try to handle things on our own
putting things on our shoulders and toughing it out, so to speak
when all we need to do is humble ourselves, surrender and bring it all to God.
When we lean on Him, we experience hope....
2 Corinthians 3:12
Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold.
....And boldness brings freedom
