Rejoice in hope. Lord I believe that our hope is only in you so against all the world’s understanding of this challenging time I rejoice in the truths of your Word. Be blessed everyone and I pray that everyone will be filled with a spirit of hope. God is Sovereign and still can work miracles.
Oh Lord, My God, in You I seek refuge.
In this difficult time, let us go back to the basics of our faith and be reflective so as to grow further in faith.
So many places in scriptures we are to “fear not” It is a command not a recommendation!! I will not allow a spirit of fear to over come me during these difficult times! God has not given us a spirit of fear but of love and a sound mind!!! So we know fear does not come from God. When the devil tries to get me to fear something I will continue to say “I will not fear”. It will shut him up and give me a greater sense of hope in God’s word. Thank you for you message today. God… Read more »
Rejoice in Hope, be patient in suffering & persevere in prayer. Romans 12:12 Thanks Bruce & team for your message of Hope today.

Isaiah 41:10 (NRSV) Do not fear, for I am with you, do not be afraid, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand. This has been my thinking all along, even through some of my darker moments, so yes I will ponder on this verse more knowing that things will be better, sooner or later. My prayer will be for those who don’t know our Lord God, to come to him in simple prayer and to ask God to help them in coming out of any… Read more »

Thank you so much Bruce for a truly spirit-filled and inspiring message. I am sending the link to family and friends in the hope that it will bring peace and strength during this time. I have suffered much in my life and through the suffering I have been drawn closer to God and have learnt to surrender to His will and hold onto hope.

Have hope, trust God and don’t fear Continue to have a positive outlook and keep trusting God I will pray that there will be an end very soon to this crisis My family
Thank you Bruce for such an impactful teaching.When I was listening to you talk about hope, I remembered what a nun said at the aged care facility I volunteered in. She said without hope people die. For many years I had been telling myself what I thought was a scripture verse only to find out I mistook the word vision for hope. I would say where there is no hope, people perish.Prov 29:18 reads where there is no vision people perish. Then I looked at the verse Rosemary mentioned Prov 23:18 Surely there is a future, and your hope will… Read more »
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-8
I can’t contain myself from joy and I want to share with you what my daughter have done. I ask my daughter Mary to connect my phone to the tv so that we can listen to your praise and worship. It was not working so she ended up using her phone. At the beginning you have said, to write down a scripture or word that connects with you, so my two daughter grab a pen and paper. At the end, my youngest daughter handed me this drawing. I’m so consumed with gladness and joy❤ I cant see unfortunately a button… Read more »

Asking God to continue with understanding how the scriptures speak to us
God bless you Bruce and Rosemary. Patti and I thought the Praise and teaching program today was extremely inspirational and blessed. We have totally enjoyed the Lenten program as it has been an awesome lift from the terrible times the last 3 weeks. Please pray for all the oil and gas workers in Texas, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, La, and all around the States and the World. If the government will not do anything to combat the evil that has driven the price of oil to $22/bo, there may be as many as 500,000 people laid off and all… Read more »

Bruce and Rosemary,
Thank you for your teaching. I listened to both messages Sat night and just now making a comment.
Thank you for your messages. Bruce, you gave us 5 things on how to live now during the Coronavirus, some of your Scriptures were taken from the following: Heb 11:1, Rom 12:2, Eph 1:17-19 and Prov. 10:28. And you ask us to ask God to help us in our understanding of things we do not understand. Mrs. Rosemary, I am praying that God will get you through this.
