God is HOPE. This is a critical statement for the continuity of our series. I know that you have learned and I pray that you have embraced that God is LOVE. But have you ever considered that for the things that you are believing God for in your own life by faith, that God must also be your HOPE? Think about it.
While you watch and pray, wait and pray, wonder if "IT" will really happen and pray, deep down your belief, your faith becomes the foundation of the HOPE that God will hear, respond, act, move on your behalf and "IT" will come to pass. But if you do not believe that God is HOPE and that the hope of God connects and feeds the hope in your heart, then your faith will waiver and you will become discouraged and distracted because the waiting you will do or that you are currently having to do does not seem to make sense without hope. For hope is that feeling that everything will work out for the best. Yet, if you do not agree that God is HOPE, then how do you remain steadfast, unmovable and always abounding in the work, the way, the will, and the wait of God?
Friends, on today, our verse for reflection is my prayer for you throughout this series:
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. [Romans 15:13]
It is out of the HOPE of who God already is in time and eternity that we, too, can have HOPE. And from this kind of HOPE, we are filled with joy and peace for our journey.
God is HOPE.
God is our HOPE.
God gives us HOPE.
God sustains our HOPE.
God keeps our HOPE alive!
So, as we walk through this life, believing that God is HOPE, believing that our best is still YET to come, we can keep pressing on the upward way, gaining new heights everyday because of the HOPE we have in and from our God. And we will overflow with HOPE, not by simply thinking positively or looking at the bright side, BUT by the power of the Holy Spirit, our HOPE will last...
BlogFam, God is HOPE and God is YOUR Hope!
GOD LOVES YOU and I DO TOO!!!
Blessings, Glory, and Sunshine!
