Hope Room Corner # 2 – Carefree Hope
ENCOUNTER & ADORE THE FACE OF GOD, OUR “BURDEN BEARING GOD”
“I saw the PROMISE KEEPER as He took the world off my shoulders and gave me a NEW OPERATING SYSTEM BASED IN REST vs. striving.” Bob Hartley
- SCRIPTURE EXAMPLES
PS 55:22 – “Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.”
MT 11:28 – “Lord Double Yoke…Then we burn out…Please Lord be in all!”
BIBLICAL CHARACTER EXAMPLE
LUKE 15 – THE PRODIGAL & THE OLDER BROTHER
The Father really gives CAREFREE HOPE to both his sons . . .
He told his prodigal son, he was accepted and restored.
He told his older son that he could rest and enjoy his inheritance both today & in the days to come.
MATTHEW 8:23-25 – JESUS has CAREFREE HOPE when he sleeps in the midst of the storm on the boat
3 MAIN POINTS OF CAREFREE HOPE
1. We learn to really let Jesus carry the heavy burdens for us and to not take it on ourselves to save the world.
2. We realize e to a greater degree the truth that “His Yoke is easy and His Burden is light”. In this corner Jesus teaches how to live a lifestyle of hoping in Him in all circumstances and to be carefree.
3. We partner with Jesus as our Savior. Carefree Hope heals the fissure of hopelessness in unwittingly trying to save the world.
