McKenzie Finds Hope + What are You Hoping for?

McKenzie Finds Hope
McKenzie scanned the parched desert landscape expecting to see nothing but, hoping that he would see something or someone, some kind of life, anything. As his trained eyes journeyed slowly through the bleak, arid, inhospitable terrain, he stopped to look again at a speck in the distance. It hovered in the shimmering heat. It may have been his imagination, it may have been a mirage, but it was worth checking out.
McKenzie filled up his canteen with water from the drum in his pick-up and set off in the direction of that indistinguishable fragment of hope. As he got closer the speck grew larger and took on a distinct shape. When he finally reached it, McKenzie discovered with delight that he had stumbled upon a caravanserai; a roadside resting place where travellers could rest and recover from the day's journey. These caravanserai supported the, albeit sporadic, flow of commerce, information, and people across the network of trade routes throughout North Africa.
Although currently deserted, McKenzie knew that, eventually, some desert nomads or, perhaps, a travelling trader, would stop by for refreshment. All he had to do was wait…..
Job 11:18….You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety.

What are You Hoping for?
Job 11:18….You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety.
What are you hoping for? Do you look for it with confidence? If you do, you have faith. Faith comes when God speaks to us. Did God speak to you to believe in what you are hoping for? If not, your hope is no more than wishful thinking!
Can you see, through the eyes of faith, the materialisation of the thing you hope for? Are you sure it will happen as God has said?
Can you rest assured that God’s promises are ‘yes’ and ‘amen’? Do you believe that?
Believe and do not doubt, God will give you what you hope for.
Thank you Jesus, those who hope in you are never disappointed. Amen.
