Where Is Hope?
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Our only hope in this wretched sin filled world is the God of our salvation who has made a way for us to escape it’s strongholds, it’s grip and the consequences of it’s death and ruin. By trusting in this One, who has made a way for us, through the death and resurrection of His pure, sinless Son, Christ our Savior, the lamb of God, the mediator between us and His Father, we can know the Hope of Life eternal and abundant life here on this earth.
In Col. 1:27, Paul reminds us that the message of hope and salvation is for everyone who will accept it when he says,
“To whom God was pleased to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory”
What confirmation that God is our only true source of Hope. Anything else in this life, that makes such a claim is a false teaching and a lie straight from the enemy. There is no hope for one who is dead in trespasses and sin but As Christ ones who trust in the Lord and in our Sovereign God, our creator and our sustainer may we be filled with a confident Hope. May we be supernaturally empowered by the Holy Spirit’s work within us to experience an abundant and overflowing joy and transcending peace that comes from our Heavenly Father.
For the difficult days, the struggles and the disappointments may we know and experience Your unfailing love for us God and move on victoriously in that divine Hope, peace and joy in spite of surrounding circumstances.
