Lively Hope

The sun rising over a mountain

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.—1 Peter 1:3 KJV

With Easter behind us, it may seem as if the daily grind has taken over and your spirit is weary, but the victory of the cross isn’t behind us at all! Through the resurrection of Jesus, God has promised us “lively” hope. When our human hopes turn to dust, God’s promise abides.

Today's Prayer:

Oh, Lord, open my eyes to see Your gifts. Please remind me of the triumph of Your resurrection in my daily struggles.
