The Source of Hope

HOPE  can be defined as thedesire for something good and the expectation of recieving it. Jesus Christ is the only genuine source of hope, because He alone knows what is best and has the sovereignty and power to secure its fulfillment.All other hopes are not firmly grounded because of circumstances beyond our control.                                                          

 Christ promises us the “living hope” of an imperishable inheritancein heaven.Everyday desires  will fade away, but our home in heaven is eternal. This is our ultimate security and anchor when the storms of life are severe.

How do we endure the trials right now when heaven is so far away and the pain of this life  has no relief? Hope anticipates a change of circumstances for the better.

The difficultis which cause us to losehope are the tools  the Lord uses to increase our faith and hope in Him.

(adapted from: In Touch)

Isaiah40:31 those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles;they will run and not be weary, they will walk and not faint.
