Hope Makes Us Not Ashamed

Hope Makes Us Not Ashamed

“Hope makes us not ashamed, because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us”. (Rom. 5:5).

The first name given in the Bible to the Holy Spirit is in Romans 1:4, “and declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness by the resurrection from the dead.” 
Hope Makes Us Not Ashamed
He is given that name that we may understand the meaning of God’s holiness and we also can become holy, as God is holy. That is God’s standard for you and me.
In Hebrews 9:14: we read: “How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge you r conscience from dead works to serve the living God.” 
That is the second name we see in the Bible: the Eternal Spirit. He has given the Spirit to us to teach us about eternal things.
In john 14:16 we read; “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever.” 
The third name that is given to the Holy Spirit is the Comforter. He is called the Comforter, that the love of God may be fully enjoyed by us. 
The fourth name of the Holy Spirit is given in John 16:13 “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth; for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak; and he will shew you things to come”. 
The spirit of truth will teach me day by day things to come, and at the same time give me a clear understanding of the whole plan of salvation, for by the Holy Spirit we know clearly how we become just and righteous before God; how all our sins are forgiven; and how the Lord Himself is our sanctification and righteousness.
Similarly He says: ‘He will show you things to come”.

In the morning Lord you hear my voice

 In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice

“In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.” Psalm 5:3

In the Bible, David was called a man after God’s own heart. He knew God and saw amazing miracles throughout his life. But notice in this verse what David did. He set the tone for his whole day by spending time with the Lord in the morning.
In the morning Lord you hear my voice

It didn’t matter what was going on in his life, David had his priorities set. Even though he was mistreated by his family, manipulated, made fun of, hunted down by King Saul, and even made some major mistakes on his own, David realized that each morning held the promise of new hope.

Just like David, if you’ll make spending time with God a priority in your life, you will see Him move mightily on your behalf. Make it a habit to seek Him first every single day no matter what is happening. Set the tone for your day and set your course for victory!


Amen.
