Hope

Standard

“Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water” Gen 21:19

Hagar has been thrown out of her home with her son and now, in the desert, she has run out of water and hope – She is totally negative discouraged & ready to die.

When we are discouraged we become blind to real answers right in front of us. Because of discouragement Hagar couldn’t see the well which was right next to her all the time.

Faith sees answers in spite of the problems. Even when we are in despair we can ‘switch on’ our faith, speak the promises of God & our eyes will be opened to opportunities, possibilities & solutions.

Vision and hope and strategy come to the heart of faith.

See you in Church!

    Thank you for this comment on Hope, I really needed it! I live in the Netherlands and watch your services online. I set my alarmclock to get up at 1 o’clock to watch this mornings service but slept through the alarm even though I never needed the service more than today, can you believe it! but thankfully there is a note on your blog that helps me, Thanks!!
    I remember talking to you in Amsterdam when you visited in March, I long to be in your church in Australia, but thankfully I can watch it online!
    Thanks again!
