Hope

26 Feb

Faith, Hope and Love are the center of our life, the greatest being Love. I have written about Love and Faith a lot.Today I will talk about Hope. 

To me Hope makes the world go on, for without it life just doesn’t matter. I wouldn’t want to envision life without some sign of hope. 

It is my belief that hope begins with God. I believe that there is no true, lasting hope in this world without God. God who made us. God who loves us. God who wants to give meaning and purpose to each of our lives. 

If you’ve tried to make it without God, you probably know how frustrating it can be. Without God’s power, we have no hope of overcoming our struggles. Without God’s mercy, we have no hope of overcoming our past. Without the meaning that God gives to life, without the sense of purpose that He provides, we have no hope of overcoming the problems that life presents. While we certainly don’t know everything about God, we can learn a lot about God by looking at what He has done and continues to do everyday. 

He created this world and everything in it, which shows us that He is life-giving. This world was created in such a way that life can be sustained, this shows a loving nature. God’s revealed word, the Bible, tells us that God has continually called people to be in relationship with him. He is not an aloof God, but one who desires to interact with his creation. God has told us the things that are necessary to be done to be in relationship with Him. 

These are not arbitrary rules and regulations, but things that actually work for our good. We also see in the Bible that God made promises, and He always kept His promises. Some of those promises concern things that are still in the future, and we believe that God will continue to keep His promises. He has promised that He will do things for us in this life and that when this life is over, He will provide a life for us that will have no end. Our belief in God and our trust in His promises fill our lives with hope. God wants to be in a relationship with us. 

Today, He wants us to talk with Him every day. He wants to provide what we need for this life and eventually provide us with a life that doesn’t end. What better hope could there be?

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
