The Scope of Hope

Jeremiah 29:11 (NKJV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

This is one of our favorite verses, I’m sure for many of you as well.  The context during which this was pronounced parallels where we are currently with COVID-19, in that Israel was in Babylonia bondage during the 70 years prophesied earlier.

As w study this entire chapter we are given a blueprint as “Kingdom Living in a Counter Culture”.

Just as Israel bondage would not last forever, neither will this current crisis; all the while the Lord God Almighty is thinking about us as He was then.  His thoughts were peace (wholeness), future and a hope.

There is hope in and for your future.  The hope for our future is not a mere destination, the future of His hope for us is DESTINY!

The scope of His hope for us, our destiny, is about to be unfolded that will commence and even now is commencing a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit drawing nations to the Lord Jesus Christ.  The doubters and pundits can deny it, reject it and despise it; yet it does not alter the purposes, the destiny, God has for His Church.

The scope of His hope deals with our future, but it is much greater, larger than our future.  The scope of His hope is our DESTINY.

Remember He’s thinking about you!
