Hope On The Horizon

Hope On The Horizon

By Suzanne
Scripture is HOPE breathed....

Romans 5:3-5 says "And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance produces character; and character produces HOPE. Now HOPE does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

Weekly we will join together to discover, declare and then decree HOPE. Amidst this life of tribulation - hardship, distress, pressure, troubles - we will watch perseverence and character reveal true HOPE that only comes from God.

Hope On The Horizon

1x
010 - Out Of The Pit, Into The Light
2022 brings transparency, overcoming by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of our Testimony, Lion of Judah who rescues us from the pit, He who brings light into the darkness and makes crooked paths straight!!! Today we talk about depression, health struggles - autoimmunity, hashimoto hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, leaky gut and fatty liver - and how faithful God is in spite of sickness, depression, feeling like you are in a pit with no way out.... but GOD - Yahweh - Creator of all things who orchestrates things and our path to draw us back to Him.  He brings light to the darkness.  He is faithful even when we are not! Psalm 139 Adonai, you have probed me, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I stand up, you discern my inclinations from afar, You scrutinize my daily activities. You are so familiar with all my ways that before I speak even a word, Adonai, you know all about it already. You have hemmed me in both behind and in front and laid your hand on me. Such wonderful knowledge is beyond me, far too high for me to reach. Where can I go to escape your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I climb up to heaven, you are there; if I lie down in Sh’ol, you are there. If I fly away with the wings of the dawn and land beyond the sea,  even there your hand would lead me, your right hand would hold me fast. If I say, “Let darkness surround me, let the light around me be night,” even darkness like this is not too dark for you; rather, night is as clear as day, darkness and light are the same. For you fashioned my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I thank you because I am awesomely made, wonderfully; your works are wonders — I know this very well. My bones were not hidden from you when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes could see me as an embryo, but in your book all my days were already written; my days had been shaped before any of them existed. God, how I prize your thoughts! How many of them there are! If I count them, there are more than grains of sand; if I finish the count, I am still with you. God, if only you would kill off the wicked! Men of blood, get away from me! They invoke your name for their crafty schemes; yes, your enemies misuse it. Adonai, how I hate those who hate you! I feel such disgust with those who defy you! I hate them with unlimited hatred! They have become my enemies too. Examine me, God, and know my heart; test me, and know my thoughts. See if there is in me any hurtful way, and lead me along the eternal way.  ----- Listen to Voice of Truth by Casting Crowns: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cKm_mYVPQE ---   ----- Marsha Burns, Small Straws in a Soft Wind: https://ft111.com/smallstraws.htm. #hope, #pit, #depression, #mental health, #examine, #healing, #spiritual, #growth, #God, #Yahweh, #Yeshua, #Scriptures, #Anxiety, #Fear, #Deliverance, #Word of God

009 - Joyfully Blessed
Goodbye 2021 and all past years and hello 2022 and all that God is calling us to do and be.  This is a Word He gave me.  It is not our normal "10-12 minute drive time" but rather longer with His Word, my testimony and His redeeming blood... “Then I heard a loud voice in Heaven saying, ‘Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Anointed One, for the accuser of our brothers and sisters—the one who accuses them before our God day and night—has been thrown out. They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives even in the face of death.’” Revelation 12:10-11

007 - A Call To Active Duty
Grace and Peace to you.  Welcome to Hope on the Horizon - Episode 007 - A Call To Active Duty. That title is from Father God. He woke me up early in the morning on Tuesday twice.  The first time to pray.  The second time I just naturally began to pray when He quickened in my spirit to quiet my thoughts and prayers.  I then heard Holy Spirit say "I have called my children to active duty".  I asked the Lord what that could possibly mean.  I woke my husband, a former Marine, up to ask what it meant when you are called to active duty.  There is the military call to active duty and the spiritual call. God has confirmed that He is calling His children to arise. wake up. draw near to Him.  This is the message for His children. He is so gracious to gently call us - gently minister to us.  This is that!  Beloved - the alarm clock has sounded - it is time to arise.  Get your garments on - it is time for ACTIVE duty with the King of kings. He confirmed this Word a couple of hours later through a dear friend who He speaks through and prophecies His Words through.  Beloved we are in Joel 2 (go read it!!). It is critical that we listen to the alarm while it is still gently, the winds of change are JUST beginning and the storm/war/battle has not begun.   I kept today's message short - even with intro and close of the music - we are just at 10 minutes.... To go deeper and listen to what He showed me and the Word He gave my friend - head over to my website:  www.HopeOnTheHorizon.me/blog and click on the post - A Call To Active Duty.

006 - Operate In Gentleness
Grace and Peace to You! Welcome to Hope On The Horizon. My name is Suzanne. Yes - we skipped last week - sort of.... check out my blog post about HOPE and Titus 3 (as this was what I thought would have been Episode 005 of this podcast).  In that blog post you can read with me some of what Holy Spirit has been teaching me....  I guess in a way this is part 2 of that personal Word He gave me.... but He wanted to minister INDIVIDUALLY to me.... I am assured if you go read it - He will have a personal Word for you too.  But now.... we look at gentleness. SCRIPTURE NOTES: Titus 3:2 ESV "To speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people." 1 Peter 3:15 ESV "But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect..." Suffering for Righteousness' Sake (1 Peter 3:8-17) Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.” Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame. For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God's will, than for doing evil."

004 Part 2 - Proverbs 3:5-6 - Trust In The Lord
Part 2 of Proverbs 3:5-6.  On our return road trip - the little guy Zechy had fallen asleep and Holy Spirit prompted me that we needed to move from milk to meat.  That we must not just Trust in the Lord but GROW UP IN HIM.  To dig deep into His Word so we can know WHAT is on the Horizon.  Holy Spirit is ministering to His Body what some of it looks like out on the Horizon. We must prepare and we must know how to test the spirit and seek His confirmation and His truth.  Time to grow up...unless you are 9 years old like Zechy  -  but even then - to be trained up in the way we should go... Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." Vicky Adkins - www.VickyAndChuckAdkins.com/Archived-Messages Hebrews 5:12-14 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food, for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil. Ephesians 4:11-16  And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, ... Study His Word.  Seek His Face.  Pray.  Grow IN Him so you can "trust in the Lord with all your heart and not lean on your own understanding...." David Pawson - www.DavidPawson.com

004 Part 1 - Proverbs 3:5-6 Faith Like A Child
Today, join my 9 year old Zechariah and I as we talk about Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord your God with all you heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path."   We took a roadtrip to our state capitol and talked about paths being directed by God just like the GPS (or Waze) does when traveling.  We "introduce" y'all to Bear Bear our super smart German Shepherd and even use her in a teachable moment.  What you won't hear is our conversations after this time together on our roadtrip as the Lord straightened some crooked paths for Zechariah and I.   This is part 1.  It is simple. It was for Zechariah as much as for me.  Part 2 is just me talking about this message with a little more meat and fervency.  If you have time - please listen to both. And may you find God directing your steps and see "hope on the horizon".   Suzanne & Zechy 10.21.21

003 Finding Hope Amidst Mourning
Wow - Satan is a LIAR and THIEF.  But God is good all the time... somehow this episode disappeared on my list after I published it and became a draft.  I may be a novice at all of this - but I know that I didn't go back to change it to draft!  It was live a day ago because someone sent me a note about it!!!  But alas - I will just republish it along with todays neweset podcast.   Original Recording October 14, 2021 Finding Hope Amidst mourning and sadness! Warning.... this podcast is longer than 10 minutes.  I apologize but I guess finding HOPE while mourning or amidst grief takes a little longer than a 10 minute podcast.   God's Ways Are Higher Than Ours Isaiah 55:8-9 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." Romans 11:33 "Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!" Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." George Muller:  https://www.georgemuller.org/ Corrie Ten Boom & The Fleas:  https://deeprootsathome.com/betsie-and-the-fleas/.  Read the Corrie's book The Hiding Place John 10:10:  "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." Blue Letter Bible:  Look up John 10:10 and use the TOOLS feature to see the Greek Word for "Life" and "More Abundantly"

002 Oh The Plans I Have Versus "The Plans of God"
Grace and Peace to You! Welcome to Hope On The Horizon. My name is Suzanne. This week - let's just enter in prayer.  Let's also repent because I don't know about you but I want to start fresh - fresh eyes, fresh ears, fresh heart.  I cannot do that if I am carrying around the stuff from this week into the next.  As we enter into our Sabbath rest this weekend.... let's seek His face.  And I take from this week the knowledge that my plans for Hope on the Horizon (and many hours of recording that I have kindly put in the trash can) weren't His.  I want HIM to use this platform for HIS will, plans and purposes and not mine!  How about you?  Has it been "a week" and you need a reset?  Then let's pray together!  Just 10 minutes.... so that we can look with fresh eyes for HOPE on the Horizon!!

001 Hope On The Horizon - Introduction
Grace and Peace to You! Welcome to Hope On The Horizon. My name is Suzanne. In July 2021, on a trip through Washington DC, Holy Spirit spoke to my heart to start a podcast. He ministered to start it after Feast of Tabernacles. Thus - my official podcast for Hope On The Horizon is birthed today! After much prayer - the Lord gave me the name for this podcast.  I heard in my spirit - HOPE on the Horizon.  Thankfully there wasn't a podcast with this name (there are some variations but not just these 4 words).  So of course I had to see what the words meant...after all I am a WORD NERD!!  For this intro - I want to be sure to include the Strong's Concordance meanings since I was truly blown away by what the Lord showed me about the word Horizon - check it out further below in this description.   The purpose of Hope On The Horizon's podcast is for us to dig deep for 10 minutes and find HOPE on the Horizon. We are going to explore the Hidden things of His Word.  In the Old Testament Hebrew, Horizon is ḥōq (pronounced hoke) and is Strong’s #2706; meaning statute, ordinance, something prescribed, like a prescribed task, portion, limit, boundary, decree, condition, and even law or enactments. In the New Testament Greek, it is horizo (pronounced hor-id'-zo) and is Strong’s #3724: meaning to mark out or bound ("like horizon"), to appoint, decree, specify:--declare, determine, limit, to ordain. So simply put - HOPE is decreed. HOPE is a determined boundary. How do we expand the boundary of hope in our life? We go through some STUFF! Scripture says in Romans 5:1-2 “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. If we believe and walk with God in Jesus Christ - we have gained access into an amazing grace and salvation. And so we can boast in the hope of the glory of God. But then it goes on to say how we can EXPAND and GROW in the fullness of HOPE. Romans 5:3-4 says "And not only that (hope of the glory of God), but we also (are to) glory in tribulations, knowing that those tribulations produce perseverance; and that perseverance produces character in us; and then that character (which is of GOD) will produces HOPE in us. And verse 5 says “Now HOPE does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” As we seek Him. Ten minutes or so - to listen, to pray, to worship, to decree, specify, ordain according to the Word of God - we will see HOPE on the Horizon. For the Horizon is God’s Word. Hope in HIM. Hope in HIS WORD. Hope in what happened on the cross of Calvary and that He now is seated at the right hand of the Father for you and me. For our spouses (present or future), for our children (present or future), for our communities, cities, states, countries. Two remaining things.... I would like to thank God for some awesome people in my life. They bravely blazed a trail for stepping out in faith on ministry via podcasts first. Denice Lupcke is my sister (blood and spiritual) and hosts daily reading of 5 Psalms a Day with PsalmsCast. I highly recommend it. Additionally - my friend Vicky Adkins has a plethora of teachings on YouTube and now has her own podcast.  Vicky's husband is also an amazing musical artist and a couple of years ago he created a beautiful song for me.  It is called Suzanne's Song.  At the start of my podcast you can hear the beginning of the song.  The full song will be on my website.  You can also hear it on Vicky & Chuck's Home Page of their website. I have full copyright permission to use this song.
