Hope, Baby

Steve Backlund of Bethel Church (Redding, CA) has been here this weekend sharing his message. He and his wife Wendy are good stuff.

The basic message is this: if there is an area in your life that is not bursting with hope, that is an area in which you are believing a lie. The truth about any situation is that God desires and is powerful produce the best. Why would anyone who knows Him be discouraged?

Why would we feel badly about ourselves? The Lord does not feel badly about us. He loves us and sees us as princes and princesses in His Kingdom.

Why would we feel badly about our finances? Our Father in heaven has unlimited resources that He longs to pour out through His family.

Why would we feel discouraged over our relationships? We are ambassadors of Christ, who loved all and left everyone better than they started.

Hope comes from the One who sits enthroned over all creation. Get some.
