Hope for the Hard Days

In Psalm 147, we see God’s power and might on display. It speaks of Him as the Healer, the One who numbers the stars, limitless, and our Sustainer. In light of all His power, God does not delight in our might or abilities. Instead, Psalm 147 comments, “His delight is not in the strength of the horse,… Read More»

Thanksgiving

Amazing Grace

As we draw closer to Thanksgiving, we are reminded of all of the blessings the Lord has given to Vision of Hope this year. It is true what the Psalmist says – His steadfast love endures forever, and we should be prompted to praise and thank Him! (Psalm 107:1) So far this year, we have… Read More»

Freeing Truth: Part 3

We serve a God who provides for His children. In fact, one of the names of God is Jehovah Jireh – The Lord Provider! Philippians 4:19 states, “And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” What an amazing promise! For those who have placed their… Read More»

Freeing Truth: Part 2

Truth is freeing, and it sanctifies us and keeps us from sin. In John 17:17-19, Jesus said, “Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. As You sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. And for their sake I consecrate Myself, that they also may be sanctified in… Read More»

A Good Truth

We serve a good God. In Psalm 119:68, the psalmist declares to God, “You are good and do only good; teach me Your statutes.” (NLT) Believing the truth that God is always good  (with no “bad” at all in Him) is essential in our daily lives. When we believe that we serve a good God,… Read More»

Were It Not for Truth

Earlier this year, we wrote several blogs about the grace of God. We rely upon His grace every single day and because of this, there is a lot of emphasis on grace and rightfully so! However, did you know that we also rely upon TRUTH every day, too? John 1:14 reminds us of the importance… Read More»

Freeing Truth

Truth is a principle that effects our daily lives. Whether we believe it or not, everyone has a source of Truth; everyone believes in something. Even those who say they don’t believe in any truth are believing a truth by making that very statement! It is important, therefore, to evaluate what you believe and to… Read More»
