“And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.” Romans 5:5
Hope isn’t wishy-washy. Nor is it just about a simpleton desire. Hope in Christ is as solid as His love. It doesn’t change, wither or become invisible over time.
Understanding that God’s love for us is unchanging yet abounding, gives us strength to hope out of the impossible and the hurtful. We hope in Him, because He is the Only One who hears our prayers and prays for us.
Let His love invade, the moment you say, “Forgive me Lord. Fill me Holy Spirit. I need you so much more. Give me grace to go through. I have no money. Change this for me. Teach me what to do. Let me know you more. Give me a desire for you. Let me not repeat this sin again…”
Whatever you pray for, know the One who loves you, has paid an eternal price to see you Hopeful.
