“For David says of Him, ‘I SAW THE LORD ALWAYS IN MY PRESENCE;
FOR HE IS AT MY RIGHT HAND, SO THAT I WILL NOT BE SHAKEN. ‘THEREFORE MY HEART WAS GLAD AND MY TONGUE EXULTED; MOREOVER MY FLESH ALSO WILL LIVE IN HOPE; BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT ABANDON MY SOUL TO HADES, NOR ALLOW YOUR HOLY ONE TO UNDERGO DECAY. ‘YOU HAVE MADE KNOWN TO ME THE WAYS OF LIFE; YOU WILL MAKE ME FULL OF GLADNESS WITH YOUR PRESENCE.’ – Acts 2:25-28
Our focus today is on verse 26:
“Therefore my heart was glad and my tongue exulted; moreover my flesh also will live in hope; – Acts 2:26
Is your heart glad and your tongue exulted??? Are you living in HOPE today? If your answer is YES, let God know why. So many times we know we have joy and hope from the Lord, but we forget to be grateful and thankful to God for it.
Praise God today for the blessings in your life. The book of Acts is called that because it’s about the acts of the Apostles. Part of putting feet to your faith is being honest with God in good times, bad times and everything in-between.
Are you living in the land of HOPE? This sermon was preached in 2014 – but the meaning is still the same. I HOPE it will be a blessing to you as it was to me.
Have you taken your life, and the fact that you have had the opportunity to live it a good long while – for granted? Today’s post is a reminder to let God know you appreciate His blessings and that you acknowledge that it is HIS grace and mercy that has brought you this far. He has a wonderful plan for your life – so live your life with renewed strength and courage. God has good things in your future and mine. Live in the land of HOPE because that is God’s will for you. 🙂
