Molly’s Minute: Prisoners Of Hope
A prison sentence. That’s what this quarantine thing is starting to feel like, I’m serious. Especially after Easter weekend, when we couldn’t celebrate with our families like we’re used to.
It’s getting so hard not to feel hopeless, angry, scared, or disappointed, and I know I’m not the only one who feels that way.
But I came across this verse the other day. It’s Zechariah chapter nine verse twelve, and it says:
“Return to your fortress, O prisoners of hope, even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you” (NIV).
We might feel like prisoners right now. But, as Christine Caine says, “We get to choose what kinds of prisoners we’re going to be.”
So we don’t have to be prisoners of disappointment, or anger, or fear. We can be prisoners of hope, because we know that God will restore our lives—not just to normal—but to be even better than they were before.
Let’s choose to be prisoners of hope today.
