Hosea 2:14-15 “Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak tenderly to her. And there I will give her her vineyards and make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. And there she shall answer as in the days of her youth, as at the time when she came out of the land of Egypt.”
Do you or does someone you know need a “door of hope” today? Even though Israel had rebelled, God wanted to draw them back to Him and He wanted them to have hope for their future! He wanted them back and if you have gone your own way, He wants you back as well! Whatever you are facing today, God wants to give you hope!
If you have rebelled and gone your own way, God wants you back! If you have someone you love and they have rebelled and gone their own way, you can have hope because you can know that as much as you want them back, God wants it even more! He wants to draw him back to Him and He wants to restore the relationship. God loves you so much and He doesn’t give up as easily as we do on ourselves or on others! His grace and mercy exceed anything we can possibly fathom!
If you are struggling today and you need answers, hold on to your hope! That valley of frustration you have been in has a door of hope for you as well! Keep holding on and pressing into Him and He will lead you through to the other side!
As it says in Jeremiah 29:11-13, “For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans for good and not for evil, plans to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” His desire is for your good and for the good of those you love! Hold on to your hope, seek Him and know that His best is yet to come!
