Hope that grows and last needs to be based on some Idea or Concept that is beyond human ability to feel through the senses or imagine in the mind. When Hope is based on Faith in an Idea or Concept larger than us, our thoughts or our senses, then and only then can we Rest, Live and Love in a way that makes Life worth living.
“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.” – Romans 15:13
I have found a Blessed Challenge usually arises in my life every time my hope wanders from His Hope and when I turn, realize and refocus on His Real Hope, my smile returns. As we see that His Love is Perfect we see that each moment is as well!
hope from the world is based on what we have done to create it – Hope from Above is based on what He Finished because He Loves us beyond what we could ever imagine!
hope from the world is based on sensual based evidence – Hope from Above is based on Faith which allows Rest in the darkest moments!
When our hope is tied to our performance, God in His infinite wisdom creates situations to bring us to the Faith-Full reality that to have True Joy, True Peace and True Hope we Must Trust that All we need is All He has already given us!
His Love knows no boundaries, His Gift Finished our Holiness, we are Now Complete in Him and as our Faith in this grows so also will our Joy, Peace and Hope!
