Everywhere we turn we see people looking and searching for a, “Dawn of A New Hope.” Perhaps you look in the mirror and the reflection that you see is of someone looking for a, “Dawn of A New Hope.”
Esther 8:16 (AMP) speaks of a group of special people who remind us that we too can find this hope,
“The Jews had a light [a dawn of new hope] and gladness and joy and honor.”
Though the Jews mentioned in Esther 8:16 (AMP) lived nearly five hundred years before the birth of Jesus Christ, they remind us today of the Good News that we as modern day Christians have. That Good News is that God sent His only Begotten Son to Planet Earth over two thousand years ago to pierce the darkness of death with the Blood of The Lamb. With Jesus Christ’s Blood now sprinkled on the mercy seat of our hearts, we too as Believers, Christ Followers now possess the promise of a, “Dawn of A New Hope.” This Supernatural Hope is ours for the believing and the receiving!
As Born Again Believers, our lives should reflect a, “Dawn of A New Hope.” When someone who is searching for a life worth living reads the epistle, “Dawn of A New Hope” inscribed upon the tablets of our heart, they too will be drawn to The King of Kings and The Lord of Lords!
There are many ways that Hope speaks through our lives and touches the hearts of the world around us. Hope speaks through our speech, our actions and our attitudes. When the God kind of Hope is operating in our lives, it will always produce what the rest of Esther 8:16 (AMP) says it will produce,
“Gladness and Joy and Honor.”
Whenever we come in contact with someone in this world, whether they are a Christ Follower or not, “Gladness, joy and honor,” should be the gifts that we deposit into their hearts and lives.
The next time that you look into the mirror, know that if you are a Born Again Believer in Jesus Christ, that you have personally been commissioned by Heaven to be an Ambassador and Dispenser of, “Gladness and Joy and Honor.” These should be the gifts that we are actively on purpose, on a daily basis, depositing into the lives of our family first and then the world around us.
Matthew 5:16 (AMP) says it this way:
“Let your lights so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and Glorify your Father Who is in Heaven.”
This is The Father, The King of Kings and The Lord of Lords Who has Shined upon you and me with the Everlasting Promise of a, “Dawn of A New Hope!” Let us now Glorify Him by Boldly spreading “That Hope” wherever we go!
