Zechariah 9:12 “Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope. Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.”
Have you faced any situation that you thought was hopeless? Our God has something to say about it! There is no situation that you can face that He doesn’t have an answer for. Whatever the circumstance may look like, if it’s a concern for you, it’s a concern for Him – because that’s just how loving daddies are! Bring it before Him and get His perspective and thoughts on it.
Any place in your life where you have lost hope is under the influence of a lie.
Because this is what hope does – Hope interprets a circumstance. It tells me that just because I suffered a loss, I am now placed in a position that I will get back double! Being a prisoner of hope is constantly keeping in mind that God hasn’t left you to work things out on your own. He partners with you all the way to victory! To hope is to be in joyful anticipation that good will result (it’s not wishful dreaming). It is confidence in the goodness of God toward you. You have confidence that after doing what you have to, you have a God Who has a reputation for breaking into impossible situations and reversing their effect! You are not an orphan, you have a heavenly Daddy Who keeps watch over you!
If things appear to be slow, be encouraged. He’s working things out IN you preparing you for the answer. And He said, whatever loss you suffered, He will restore double! God cannot lie! He will do exactly as He promised!
“Abba, by Your grace I am staying hopeful. I am keeping my eyes on You and on Your promises. You are true to Your word, You never lie! And because You love me, You are watching over me constantly and You will restore to me double for all the trouble I’ve been through. In Jesus’ Name I pray, amen!”
