Hope Realized, Fear Banished

 

 

As the children of Israel cowered in fear at the shores of the Red Sea, Moses told them, “Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the Lord.” (Exodus 14:13). The rest, of course, is history. God sent a strong east wind that sliced a dry pathway through the sea. Israel escaped, and the Egyptian army drowned as they pursued them. Exodus is just one of many stories in the Bible that shares the triumphant song of praise to God for His miracles deliverance of His people in the face of seemingly insurmountable problems.

The cross is the realization of true hope for all those who believed in the past and believe today. It gives us the hope that even in life’s most difficult circumstances and greatest tragedies, we can trust in the Lord. We can persevere in the confident expectation that we are not alone or forgotten. He will never abandon us.

Tomorrow. Shout it out – CHRIST IS RISEN! AND HAS GIVEN US HOPE FOR ETERNAL LIFE! THE GOD OF HOPE IS THE ONE WE CALL OUR HEAVENLY FATHER!

Prayer

Crucified and risen Lord, you are the slain and glorified Lamb, the atoning sacrifice for all the world, our wounded healer. You ran the race ahead of us, carrying your cross to the finish line to claim the reward of victory for us. You are worthy to receive our worship forever because through your cross you have saved us and set us free. We lift high your glorious cross, proclaiming to the whole world that you are worthy to receive power and wealth, wisdom and might, honor and glory and blessing, forever and ever.

Amen

This ends our Lenten Journey…have a

Blessed Easter!
