WORD 4 Today 3/31: Easter Sunday - BUT ON the first day of the week, at early dawn, [the women] went to the tomb, taking the spices which they had made ready…He is not here, but has risen! Remember how He told you while He was still in Galilee that the Son of Man must be given over into the hands of sinful men (men whose way or nature is to act in opposition to God) and be crucified and on the third day rise [ from death].  And they remembered His words. Luke 24:1, 6-8 AMP

Confess: My heart REJOICES & I DECLARE “He is not dead, He is RISEN from the dead”.  Because of the resurrection of the Lord MY HOPE is in Him.  I will participate in that RESURRECTION as well!  Hallelujah! - P. Rick

    Always, Always, Always BE HOPEFUL!

    Always, Always, Always BE HOPEFUL!

    Faith gives SUBSTANCE to the things we hope for (Hebrews 11:1).  That is BASED on the Word of God.

    Proverbs 13:12 tell us that: Hope that is deferred, that is prolonged or delayed, makes the HEART sick.  But when the dream is fulfilled it becomes a TREE of LIFE!


    Hebrews 10:23 (NKJV) Let us hold fast the CONFESSION of our hope without wavering (seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it -AMP; hold tightly to the hope -CEV; We must continue to hold firmly to our declaration of faith -GW; hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm -NLT), for He who promised is faithful.

    (MSG) Let's keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word.

    Keep CONFESSING the WORD, hold tightly the CONFESSION of your HOPE!

    Be blessed!
