But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him (Hebrews 11:6).
This faith God has instilled in all of us that dwell in hope and shall live in righteousness forever. O, the glory of God is rich with hope and his blessings shall endure upon us all.
O LORD my God, my righteous God, thy praises shall come forth with rejoicing. Hope stood up on High, by my Christ and my God. Thy glory shall be magnified with excellencies. The LORD who is God for all generations shall be exalted on High. Father, because of your mercies I endure to lift up your name in praises. The glory of the LORD in his righteousness is exceedingly well. By your faith which is unshaken we give thanks and praises.
The hand of glory dwells in hope that his saving strength shall lift up the dead who now live in the praises of the LORD. The everlasting praises of God shall be by the hands of the saints. Glory will come and it shall remain because the LORD has ordained it. The Spirit of the LORD has bring forth a joy before us that what we were not privy to while we we dead is now made known to us because we live. Blessed be the name of the LORD. Because God is faithful to bring forth the dead and make alive, we shall endure in his faithfulness, clinging to this hope in righteousness by the blessed hand of the LORD. O how I love the LORD. This is a good God. He did not leave it up to us in our imperfection, but offer up a sacrifice to us in his Son who is the perfection of glory, that who believes in him shall have everlasting life. Now I say, this is the hope of grace by faith. This is a good God. He has given us hope to restore our image, in Christ, as it was in the beginning before the foundation of the world.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them (Genesis 1:27).
This is the image of righteousness and not sin. But this image of perfection was tainted with sin, removing us from the glory of God. But he [God] restored our image and hope in Christ. In his mercies and grace we yet live and have hope unto better things. Let us rejoice in this gift, offering praises and exaltation unto the LORD. Let us lift up his holy name on High. Let us remember the goodness of God unto our salvation and bless the LORD. The LORD our God is blessed forever.
