Scripture:   Zechariah (NIV)  9;12  Return to your fortress, you prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you. 

Observation:     God brings two thoughts together that are somewhat foreign to each other, and yet are powerful in combination:  that of being a prisoner and that of hope.   Many prisoners do not have hope.  In fact many a prison is made out of hopelessness.  

Application:     Can it be that hope is a prison keeper?  Can it be that hope is what keeps me faithful in places less than desirable?  Can it be that I am held by hope?  Yes, yes, yes, especially when that hope comes from the Lord.  I am a prisoner of hope.  I cannot give up, I have hope!

I am not only a prisoner "of" hope; I am a prisoner "with" hope.  It is amazing what a little ray of hope can do.  It is like a little beam of light into a dark place.  If light can get in, then there is a way for me to get out!   The One Who shines hope into the darkness is able to get me out of the darkness.

Prayer:   Lord,  You are the “Hope-Giver!”  With you I always have hope!  Amen
