7 for Hope. Day 3. (Promises).

Hello.. the fact that you are reading this post means it finally got published. Phew. Finally. I have suffered with post. I shdnt bore you with details. Long story short is it was supposed to have been published by 10pm yesterday but well.. blogger decided to act up.
So this is the actual day 3 post for my 7 day series for Hope. Its her birthday week and i intend to shower her with alot of blog attention.
Sometime back i was reading a piece from a very awesome christian blog and the blogger was writing about sowing seeds into people’s lives. Most times sowing seeds is associated with money but we can sow other things too (like bibilical promises). So for this post, i will be sowing promises into Hope’s life. I have used verses from Holy Bible NKJV and the words In the brackets are my own additions.
So here are 10 promises for you Hope.
1. Psalms 91: 16. With long life i Will satisfy him(her), and i Will give him(her) my salvation. To me, this is the most important of the promises. Because i believe that with life we can achieve anything we set our minds to. God will surely satisfy you with long life my darling Hope.
2. Lamentations 3:22-23. Through the Lord’s mercies we(you) are not consumed because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning. Great is thy faithfulness. Darling Hope you shall not be consumed by evil because His compassions and mercies towards you are new every morning. Fear not for He is merciful enough to protect you from all evil.
3. Psalms 9:11. For by me your days will be multipled and years of life will be added unto you. Like i said earlier, Hope, with long life, He will satisfy you.
4. Psamls 90:12. So teach us(her) to number our(her) days so that we(she) may gain a heart of wisdom. Amen to that one. May God continue to teach you to number your days so that you may gain a heart of wisdom and a spirit of descernment inorder to do what is right and ignore what is wrong.
5. Psamls 1:3. He(she) shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its(her) fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not whither and whatever he(she) does shall prosper. I can only imagine such a tree, constant flow of water. I imagine how beautiful and juicy its fruits can be. Hope, you will be like that tree. Your fruits(the works of your hands) will be bountiful, your leaves(resources) will not wither(run out), and the best part of this promise.. whatever you do shall prosper. Absolutely!.
6. Psamls 4:7. You have put gladness in my(her) heart. More than in the season their wine and grain increased. Indeed. He has already done that!. The gladness He has put in your heart lately is an unexplainable testimony. And the icing on the cake is He has not yet even started with you. Like i hear in Nigerian movies.. “by the time He is through with you, you wont even recognise yourself.”.. Hihi.. watch the space. He is coming for you.
7. Jeremiah 29:11. For i know the thoughts i think towards you (her) Thoughts of peace and not of evil. To bring you(her) a future and a hope. (Ofcourse i had to include this verse). One of my best Bible promises. Darling Hope, He has a plan for you. So dont go around beating yourself with outrageous plans because He knows what He has in store for you. They are plans of peace not evil. Definately God will never intend evil to happen to you. Even when u feel uncomfortable with God’s plan for you, be calm knowing that they are plans of peace not evil. Plans to give you a future and a hope. Stay assured, He has your future figured out.
8. Deutronomy 28:13. And the Lord shall make you(her) the head and not the tail; you(she) shall be above and not beneath, If you(she) heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which i command you(her) today, and are careful to observe them. Nuffsaid by the verse already. I cant add anything more to it. All i can say is Claim, Believe and Reap.
9. John 16:23. These things i have spoken to you(her) that in me you(she) may have peace. In the world you(she) will have tribulation but be of good cheer. I have overcome the world. Darling hope God is not Promising you a smooth ride in life. But he is promising you that when the trials and tribulations come, you should keep calm because He is the BOSS!!.
10. John 3:16. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten soon, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. Since you are a believer, you have the promise of everlasting life already. Follow His commands and He will surely fulfill His part.
