PUT YOUR HOPE IN THE LORD!
“It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.” Lamentations 3:26
HOPE FOR TODAY:
It is good to hope! Why? Because it brings our focus to the one that is able to do it! Because while we are waiting and hoping it sows deep roots of faith into our soul. Hope is a very valuable part of our life! It is just as vital as love and faith, yet so often forsaken, as we read,
“And now abideth faith, hope, and charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” 1Corinthians 13:13
So where is hope at? It is sandwiched between these two. Right in the middle rests hope, and why is hope given so much less attention than faith and love. Because perhaps hope is less tangible?
As we know faith is the substance of things hoped for (Hebrews 11:1)
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
And love is an action or deed, (1John 3:18)
“My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.” 1John 3:18
WHERE THEN IS HOPE...?
Hope is as important as faith and love, and it hasn’t lost any power, in fact the longer we quietly wait on the Lord, hope increases in power! It hasn’t lost any power by the lack of attention that it receives! It is good to hope in the Lord, hoping in God creates in us the patience that we all need to grow to maturity as Christian Believers. Having hope is power, Hope prevents our surrender, it sustains our confidence, and it prevails with us in victory on that wonderful day!
Hope stands with us and raises our arms to praise his name! There is victory in Jesus!
When we hope in the Lord it expresses our love and faith in Jesus and our steadfast faith in Him to be able to accomplish exceedingly abundant, as we read,
" Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen" Ephesians 3:20, 21
