The Word of God says that for centuries a divine mystery was concealed for generations. This mystery has the power to completely change your life, and it has been revealed to every believer to experience. These aren't just mere words, but words that extend time, words that will radically change a life.
Colossians 1:26-27 (TPT) says, "There is a divine mystery—a secret surprise that has been concealed from the world for generations, but now it's being revealed, unfolded and manifested for every holy believer to experience. Living within you is the Christ who floods you with the expectation of glory! This mystery of Christ, embedded within us, becomes a heavenly treasure chest of hope filled with the riches of glory for his people, and God wants everyone to know it!"
You will likely be met with hopelessness and despair as you turn on the news or scroll through social media, even just spending 15 minutes looking at everything going on in the world right now. You may be left wondering how your children and grandchildren will grow up in a world that seems to be rapidly deteriorating.
But friends, let me tell you: The Word of God says there is hope.
Satan is doing everything he can right now to steal that hope from your life. Why? Inside this treasure chest of hope is the radiating and manifest glory of the presence of God.
When you succumb to the fear agenda spreading throughout the globe, you lose the presence of God. Without hope, we lose our ability to contain the glory inside of us. It is Jesus Christ who anchors all hope. Without being filled with His hope, we don't have the ability to have hope in the future.
Romans 15:13 says, "Now may God, the fountain of hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable joy and perfect peace as you trust in Him. And may the power of the Holy Spirit continually surround your life with His super-abundance until you radiate with hope!"
Tune in to this episode of Awaken The Wonder on the Charisma Podcast Network to hear how you can walk through hard times in your life with Jesus and not be shaken. Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego walked through the fire, and they weren't burned.
The Lord chose for you to be alive right now, during this window of history like no other. His desire is that you would display hope to a lost and dying world! As you can see, money, power, influence, a microphone or job won't satisfy you. There is only a true satisfaction that can be found in Jesus, in the hope that lives inside of every believer. Don't let your treasure chest of hope be stolen from you; the Word of God is alive. Feast on His Word, day and night, when you feel like you are losing hope—hang on to hope Himself. Friends, you will never be disappointed.
