What can I say about Hope?! First things first; if you don’t have Hope, your life is filled with doom and you’re not walking in the promises of God.
Haven’t you felt that way once or twice, that since of dread or doom in your life?! We tend to feel it when we’ve lost Hope.
Having hope gives us the strength we need to press on! Hope is so desperately needed in the world we live in today. Being filled with hope is a blessing not to be taken for granted! Hope acts as portals through which deeper spiritual needs might be met! Hope sustains us. Romans 15:13, “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Hope is a “full word.” What do I mean by that?! Hope is filled with desires. For example, desires to want to see tomorrow (I hope to see it)! It’s filled with today’s journey to hope to go on( I have hope I will make it through today)! Hope gives us a “ready heart”! A readiness to believe for the next moment I may get to experience! A readiness to believe I would be able to “touch the face of my grandson today”. It’s a word that fills us; it’s a “full word”. Hope is as necessary as air…..without it, you can’t go on, ( well you could, but what kind of living would that be)?!
I know that’s deep?! That’s because hope is deep! It comes from deep inside of our being! It’s something we’ve been privileged to feel way down deep! Hope gives us an anticipated expectancy that something great is about to happen! Hope gives us more Hope! When it grabs a hold of you, it makes you want more of it! Hope sustains. Hope grows. Hope maintains us.
There is so much more that can be said about Hope. What are your thoughts?! Let’s ponder Tuesday’s Beautiful Word…..Hope
