Living Hope: Faith Seeds: Prayers and Poetry


1 Peter 1:3, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”

We know we are grateful for the gift of forgiveness and grace that Jesus gave. And our minds understand the hope for eternity when the time comes. But how often do we recognize Christ’s living hope during days that are filled with stress or perhaps with a lassitude that numbs our senses.

In his devotional book, Faith’s Check Book, C.H Spurgeon continually challenges himself and his readers to take God’s words of promise to heart literally each day. To actually experience faith through relationship and not only knowledge.

“See! The Lord promises a present deliverance: ‘Now will I break his yoke from off Thee.’ Believe for immediate freedom and according to thy faith so shall it be unto thee at this very hour. When God saith ‘now,’ let no man say ‘tomorrow.’ C.H. Spurgeon

A living hope—in the present—hope now—new life—new beginnings—the awe of new birth—deliverance.

Lord, please keep our eyes and hearts open to Your life in us. Help us to spend our present days in the atmosphere of Your breath.


Psalm of Worship: Psalm 32:7

“Thou art my hiding place; Thou dost preserve me from trouble;
Thou dost surround me with songs of deliverance.”
