Hold onto your hope

This is my song at the moment. I find myself in a season of waiting for my promises from the Lord to come to pass and this song just encourages me to hold onto my hope. When you get a promise from God it is beautiful, it is sweet and it gives you hope for your future but when you are in the waiting for that promise it is hard.

The waiting is where hope, trust and faith can be lost and abandoned. During this time we can either walk away from the Lord or we can lean in closer to Him, fix our eyes on Jesus, get on our knees before God and say I don’t understand this waiting but please help me to Lord. Please meet me in the waiting, let there be beauty in my time of waiting for my promises to come.

It is important to remember that promises that remain unfulfilled are still promises. God is faithful and they will come to pass and we need to hold onto our hope. In Habakkuk 2:2 it says Then the Lord replies “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald can run with it. Writing down our promises helps us to hold onto our hope.

Whenever you hear from God, write down what He is telling you. Record the prophecies that are given to you and any word spoken over you. Underline those verses in the bible that speak so loudly and clearly to you. By doing this you will be reminded of what God is saying to you.

And then go over the words God has given to you and read them again and again. Go back over Gods promises until you see them begin to unfold in your life.  And then tell the testimonies of what the Lord has done in your life. This will help to encourage others while they are in their season of waiting as well. Your testimony points to Gods goodness and faithfulness, it helps to build our faith and our endurance. This is what holding onto your hope until your triumph unfolds looks like.
