18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms,

Hope is a powerful concept. The Bible says that, “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure” Heb. 6:19. Hope anchors us when the winds and waves of life crash all around. Hope keeps us from drifting when the calm of a safe harbor lulls us to sleep. God didn’t save us just to let us flounder on our own. He gives us everything that we need for life and godliness (2Pet. 1:3). If we could only grasp how much God has given us in Christ, our faith would soar and our fears would disappear.

God’s power is for us not against us! The same power that raised Jesus from the dead, the same power that spoke the world into existence, the same power that holds everything together is available for us. He is for you not against you! He works on our behalf. He has our best interest in mind. And all that power is motivated by His amazing love for us. Why do I doubt that He can change this world through me? Why do I fear that I won’t be enough to make a difference? Why do I waver in my resolve to be bold for Christ? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Rom. 8:31). Don’t get hung up on the “if” at the beginning of that verse. God is for you! And since He is for you, who can stand in your way of achieving His plan for your life? No one, that’s the answer. No one and nothing can separate you from His love and His plan for your life!

Can you trust in that today? Can you hold onto that anchor come what may? Good work!

    I have to trust him more! I have to continue to learn of him. Quiet my mind and listen to him speak to me. That can be a hard thing for me at times to just lay back and listen to what he wants to say directly to me. I am going to do that now as I go to sleep and meditate on how much he is “for me ” and has a awesome plan. I have to live as If I have abandoned the ways of the world. Live in the spirit. Walk in the spirit. Praise God!!
