In this devotional-style book, you will discover that hope is a weapon! It’s a key God has given us to unlock radical growth, heart healing and unexplainable peace. Hope is a Kingdom strategy that will cause you to walk in deeper levels of joy, faith and courage. When you begin to grab a hold of God’s perspective and the supernatural hope it’s covered in, nothing can remain the same!
Author Melissa Benson offers powerful hope injections to take you deeper in your connection with Jesus through topics like identity, vision, freedom and restoration. She also addresses tough but real subjects like lies, offense, trials and disappointment and brings a fresh point-of-view on each. Even more important to her than her own writings are the over 100 accompanying scriptures for you to meditate on and dive deeper into.
Whether you have been living with disappointment and hopelessness or just want to stay focused on what God is up to and excited about, the Spirit-led, Bible-based principles in Hope Surge will light a fire in your belly and bring about a renewed excitement for life.
It’s time to get your hopes up—way up!
Hope is the confident expectation that good is coming! It’s believing that your future is going to be even better than today and that you get to partner with Jesus to make it happen. Hope is a key. It’s a Kingdom strategy. It’s a weapon!
Our level of hope is directly connected to what we believe. This battle—in its truest and most simple form—is between truth and lies. We will either live out our days grabbing onto what the enemy, the world, religion or our past says, or we will intentionally make it our mission to find out what our loving Creator-God has to say, and then renew our minds with that over and over again until it becomes our reality.
When we find ourselves feeling hopeless and continually discouraged, it’s because somewhere in our belief system, we have taken a hold of a lie about ourselves, our circumstances, our relationships, or our future. But when you begin to understand what God has to say about every part of your life and start to grasp how much you are really loved and how heaven sees you, it will produce huge amounts of hope. In fact, you can’t NOT be hopeful—and, in turn, more joyful, faith-filled and courageous—once you come into alignment with these truths.
This beautiful freedom-journey is all about starving the lies and feeding the truth. And we’re about to get full on all the right stuff!
