JUST- A- HOPING


In the main scheme of things “Hope” can easily be overlooked, but hope is one of the main ingredients in a successful life. Without hope, life takes on a different perspective altogether.

The Bible gives us a view of how to have a successful life.

Hebrews 12:1 Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.

A needful ingredient in answered prayer is Hope. Where there is no hope there is no basis for answers to prayer.

Most Christians pray a lot and spend much of their focus on building up their faith. A lot of this is done by reading the Bible for this is where life’s questions are posed and answered.

The objectivity of faith is Hope. There is an old song which has in it the line, “The object of my affection can change my complexion from white to rosy red.”

So also hope can change us and enhance our ability to believe.

While Hope is an intangible it produces tangible results.

The words of the song “Prayer is the key to Heaven but faith unlocks the door” sounds good, but a faith key only functions where there is hope. At times our hope seems weak and requires that it be restored or built up just like our faith does.

Psalms 42:11 Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

Are you going to pray? Get all excited, turn your hope in GOD loose and then have faith in GOD.

Hebrews 11:6 It is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him and Hope is the essence of answered prayer.
