REDISCOVERING YOUR HOPE IN TOUGH TIMES

____________________________________________________________

“True faith means holding nothing back. It means putting every hope in God’s fidelity to His promises.” – Francis Chan –

Our God of All Hope has graciously and generously given us promises of hope in His Word. Hope is confident expectation in this unchanging God. For He will be trustworthy to keep all His promises to His children who walk in His ways. He will usher us into His divine will, the abundant and blessed life He has planned for us, as we follow Him.

Our true hope rests in Jesus Christ. He is the One who gives us promises of salvation, redemption, eternal life… promises of His presence, power, protection… promises of His love, peace, joy. It is this Living Hope, our Savior and Lord, in whom we place our absolute faith. Our hope is never lost. For He who promises is forever faithful.

The Word of God is powerful when we speak it over our lives. When we find our hope beginning to slip away, we can lay hold of these promises of hope to help us carry on and persevere in tough times
