Hope, Our Anchor

Weekly Devotional

May 15, 2017

Hope deferred makes the heart sick. Hope is something that is as important to us as the air we breathe.  Take away our hope and life becomes meaningless.

It’s more than wishful thinking.  Hope, like faith and love, is a gift from God.  It’s having a firm assurance about things that are not yet seen, but are still in the future.  If you want to smile through your tears, rejoice through rough times, keep reminding yourself that what you are going through now isn’t the end of your story, it is simply a rough place in the road that’s leading you to your God given destination.  When we place our hope in God’s ability we will never be disappointed.  You can be certain God has promised you a future and He never fails to keep His promise.  Genuine hope is having confidence that what God has done for you in the past He will do for you in the future. “Our hope lies not in the man we put on the moon, but in the man we put on the cross.” Quote by Don Basham

 

Proverbs 13:12 (NKJ) Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.

 

Romans 5:5 (NKJ) Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

 

Joshua 23:14 (NLT)  Soon I will die going the way of all the earth.  Deep in your hearts you know that every promise of the Lord your God has come true.  Not a single one has failed!


Blessing, Protection, and Favor,
