Romans 5:5 KJV
And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
Hope is an expectation.
Most people’s hopes amount to nothing but mere wishes that do not come to pass. Bible Hope differs from worldly Hope in this respect: while the hope of the world is a wish that something may come to pass, Bible Hope is an expectation of Good daily.
Therefore, no matter what happens, the child of God must maintain their strong expectation of Good in every situation. Every situation must conclude at some point but it is what you keep expecting that you’ll see in the end. (Proverbs 23:18)
Facing a hopeless situation of both his own impotence and Sarah’s barrenness, Abraham still had hope of fathering kids according to the promise of God. (Romans 4:18).
Hope is the foundation that Faith builds upon. Abraham’s Faith was powered by a strong hope.
Hopelessness deprives your today of strength and robs your tomorrow of a good future. *Hope sees light even in the darkest situation, while Hopelessness sees darkness even when light is shining* When men give up hope in a better tomorrow, death is not far behind them.
The woman with the issue of blood in Mark 5 was kept alive by Hope when she heard of the healing miracles of Jesus. That made opportunity for her faith to express itself in touching Jesus. She was healed.
Child of God, wake up each day expecting good. Let your Hope be Bible Hope. Have a daily strong expectation of good.
Even today, understand as you go that God has given you a great future in Christ. Let your expectation of good be built on that. Your future is bright and glorious. It is calling your name. No matter what you are facing right now, at this moment, have a strong expectation that it will turn around for your good in the name of Jesus.
Have the most favourable and most wonderful day ever today.
I am an expression of the Divine!
