“Return to your fortress, you prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you.”(Zec 9:12)
Hope is having a trustful expectation particularly with the fulfillment of God’s promises.
Prisoner is a person who is deprived of liberty against their will.
The Lord admonishes us to become prisoners, slaves, or even a captive to Hope. Whenever we are tempted to be prisoners of hopelessness we can decide to be hopeful; because God can and will give us double for anything that may have been lost, or stolen.
To be a prisoner of hope means:-
· You always have a confident expectation of good.
· You are always looking forward.
Beloved, let us exit the prison of discouragement and depression and enter the prison of hope, security and prosperity; by making a decision to cultivate an attitude of hope in our life.
