God is still God, the restorer of my hope

God is all powerful
—Even when I pray for a miracle and He gives sustaining grace
God is good
—Even when His timing does not match my desire
God is sovereign
—Even when I do not understand His plan, He meets needs I did not know I would have

God is merciful
—In all my sin, His mercy is inexhaustible
God is gracious
—In all my need, He sustains me and gives beyond what I could expect

God is unboxable
—Even though He is beyond my comprehension, I cannot exaggerate His character
God is omni-competent
—Even when my need is great, He is beyond capable

Therefore…

When I need hope, He is the answer
He is whom I must focus on

to have hope restored

When I face long nights, and chronic issues
He is whom I must run to

to have hope restored

He is the Hope Restorer

Therefore…

to have my hope restored
—requires trust and a willingness to surrender preoccupation
—requires uncommon joy that is produced by uncommon trust in an incomparable Lord

God sent Jesus Christ to become like us in order that we might have a relationship with Him. That relationship now is hope giving, certain anticipation for today, all of my tomorrows and for eternity.

May He be our Hope Restorer.

Philippians 4:4-8 and 1:19-20

I love to study the Bible and I love to engage with others in learning. I had been privileged to do this on a regular basis through church ministry and through part-time teaching at a local Bible colleges. Helping individuals learn to feed themselves through their own study of God’s Word is joy-giving to me. Influencing groups to do life and church from a biblically grounded, theologically faithful perspective is my passion.
