What is hope?
In my opinion, Jeremiah put it best: Chapter 29:11” 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Hope is powerful. It is the light in a dark world. If we can give a person hope, we will help them to have a new life.
Hope is only found in Jesus Christ. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
When we have hope, we will not give up. When we are focused on the One who will never leave us or forsake us, we will have hope when circumstances seem to be impossible.
Hope means that we believe that something better is to come. Jesus Christ and His promises about what He has in store for us, are the only hope with a guaranteed positive solution to the problems in our lives, today and in the future. Hope means that we are alive because of Him. Through Him we have eternal life.
Hope means that we are alive because of Him and through Him, we have eternal life.
Hope means that when we look at our circumstances, we don’t see them as they are. We look at them through the eyes of Jesus. We can look at our circumstances and see them according to the hope promised in the Word of God.
Hope means that “we will run our race marked out for us” because we can see the finish line.
How can we start developing our hope in Jesus Christ?
We can start by accepting Him as our Saviour. Surrendering to Him so that He can be Lord of our lives and then we must allow Him to run our lives so that He is all that He can be in us and we can reach our full potential.
It begins with us, laying down our old selves and putting on His robe of righteousness.
