Hope IS Jesus & Jesus IS Hope!

When we place our hope in anyone or anything other than Jesus, we will end up hurt, disappointed, frustrated, and unfulfilled in this life. This includes work, political party, government, friends, and family! Case and point, we are human and humans often lie and fail. Whereas, God is God and the only two things He can’t do is lie or fail. Tweet this: “Whoever has your hope has you heart.” In other words, we will pursue whatever brings us hope. Biblical hope is more than just fostering optimism, it’s possessing unequivocal confidence about the future or the successful outcome of challenge or obstacle (Hebrews 11:1). Biblical hope isn’t just seeing the silver linings or seeing the glass half-full rather, it’s more about seeing the Hand that delivered you out of that certain trial, hardship, and/or circumstance! The Word of God remind us that He is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask for or think (Ephesians 3:20), He is the one who creates light and dark, peace and calamity (Isaiah 45:7),His mere voice can strip a forest bare (Psalm 29:9), and lastly, our hope stands firm on the promises of God’s faithfulness and goodness (2 Cor 1:20). We can bring all of our requests to him knowing that He will answer for our good and his glory. At the end of our life when we finally see our Lord face-to-face, the only thing He will deny us will be all the pain, agony, and strife we experienced in our lives here on this wicked planet. Then, our hope will be fully realized in the eternal glory of our precious Lord and Savior!
