Hope in God is faith looking at the promises of the Lord, knowing with absolute assurance that what God has done in the past He can do for you today.
Some may respond to our Christian walk, by admitting they are an atheist. When you ask them why they are atheists, they usually reply because they cannot see God do anything in the lives of people. When we witness to them, what they do not understand, is we are not seeing things as they do, but, on our own faith. For we as Christians, know what God can do…even for an atheist. Atheists, agnostics, and pseudo-intellectuals oppose hope because they see it as escapism from reality. One of the most brilliant thinkers in world history wrote these words: “The world through wisdom did not know God.”
Brilliant minds may know some things yet not know the best things. Men may treasure material things, or treasure rags.
The wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. Isaiah 57:20 What shall it profit a man if he is the world’s greatest investor and does not know the Pearl of Great Price?
What shall it profit a man if he is a great doctor and does not know the Great Physician? What shall it profit a man if he is the greatest farmer in the world and does not know the Lord of the Harvest?
What shall it profit a man if he is the world’s most renowned florist and does not know the Rose of Sharon or the Lily of the Valley? What shall it profit a man if he is an accomplished geologist and does not know the Rock of Ages? What shall it profit a man if he is a respected scholar and does not know the incarnate Truth? What shall it profit a man if he is the wisest man on earth and yet lives without hope?
Our hope is based on the Word of God.
Our hope is steadfast, sure, and unshakable.
Our hope gives us a song in the night.
Our hope looks at the coming storm and shouts with joy, “the anchor holds.” Hope sees the invisible, hope feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.
God gives us two ends to accomplish our divine destiny: A head with which to think and that with which to sit. Nothing will work in this life, unless we do. You should make every dime we earn for the rest of our life count for something.
Hope in God will make you laugh and sing again, and it will lift you up from the depths of despair and depression and motivate you to try again, and not quit! For our heart shall rejoice in Him Because we have trusted in His holy name. Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, Just as we hope in You. Psalms 33:21-22
Hope is in things unseen, by faith. And that faith will be tested and proved by God Almighty. We are to stand in that hope for what we believe in as a child of Jesus Christ. Are you? Will you continue to push forward and not quit? May the Lord God keep watch over you who read these blogs, and may you open your heart to receive in love, what He has shown me. Thank you Lord, for your tender touch. Blessings and prayers be with you.
