The following was taught and prayed through during our 9:30 a.m. family prayer time with Sue DeGroot
I awoke with this line in my spirit -“Prisoner of hope.”
Return to the stronghold, You prisoners of hope. Even today I declare That I will restore double to you.
Zechariah 9:12 NKJV
May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.
Romans 15:13 AMPC
When you are on the verge or have let go of hope, you are like a ship where the anchor has been cut away and you, the ship, are then subject to every wave or gust of wind as it is blown across the water. Therefore, you are helpless when you are hopeless.
Hope is our anchor to faith (Heb 6:19) and without faith we cannot please God. Without hope, we cannot maintain faith; they must coexist.
Hope is a fortress (a place of protection & safety). This is where we are to return as a prisoner of hope. A prisoner is one bound to something; held captive. Hope should hold our hearts and minds captive.
God says we are to return (recompense, reverse, reward, rescue, relieve us) and promises us double.
Hope releases the power of the Holy Spirit.
We are praying towards us being those PRISONERS OF HOPE regarding the promises God has given us regarding our families, finances, marriages, spouses, children, health, job, relationships, Eagles Nest ministry, etc.
