Hope and Faith

40 Days of Hope Day 16

He not only gives us hope, but delivers what is promised!
“for we have been saved in this hope and for this future. But hope does not involve what we already have or see. For who goes around hoping for what he already has? But if we wait expectantly for things we have never seen, then we hope with true perseverance and eager anticipation.”
– Romans 8:24-25

Our hope is not based on the possibility that something might happen, “I hope my team wins the Super Bowl, I hope I get a raise” but instead on the expectation that it will happen.
Our responsibility is to
1. Persevere-continue on our course in spite of difficulty and opposition
2. Anticipate-eagerly await the completion of our salvation.

We live our lives to give glory and honor to the One who not only gives us hope, but delivers what He promises.

“If God is for us, who can be against us?”
Romans 8:31
