Another way of at looking at the word hope is to view it as confidence. As our confidence is in the LORD our awareness of courage and the strength of our heart is increased. Confidence in the LORD is increased as we give our heart attention to that which matters. What matters is to live in such a way that our expression emanates the influences of the LORD moment by moment day by day. This does relate to being conscious of what we are emanating and adjusting as necessary to stay in this way. I have begun to present HeartMath tools that are helpful in this regard. Reference my DrSteveVentola.com link to note my posts accordingly.
HeartMath was created out of the intention of Doc Childre to find a greater communion with God. I have found it very helpful also in this regard. It is good to bring what I love in inner sense to find greater expression through the means of my outer work. May my example help you to do the same.
Catch the emotion of this—and appreciated knowing something more of the expansiveness and wellness of the LORD!
As we remember the wholeness of LORD we realize His wholeness goes beyond our mental comprehension. Here we can only bow to His awesome presence and all enfolding love. As we remember we become whole ourselves. And know the honor of letting His Name increase on earth through us.
As we rise up to hear the voice of the LORD we commune in His power. It has been a tendency to block ourselves off from hearing His voice because of shame and fear. Because of this we have tended to think we are not worthy to hear His voice or to actually do His will. If not us then who. Each of us is here on earth to do the will of the LORD. We would not be here at this time if it was not our time to provide an unique integrated part for the LORD to have his way on earth.
In hearing the voice of the LORD I have sensed that He is calling us to come to rest in our hearts. The time is now to provide an influence of love to our own heart and mind letting the downcasting incriminating thoughts about ourselves and others be see as insignificant. And acknowledge what is significant in our heart of hearts is to provide an influence of blessing on earth.
The voice of the LORD is powerful. Powerful to bring our heart to rest, vision to our mind and invigoration to our body in doing His will on earth. Here is our fulfillment in living. Let us listen to His voice in the power of love.
