Hope in Jesus scripture:
For to this end we toil and struggle,[a] because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe.
1 Timothy 4:10 (NRSV)
Living with Hope in Jesus
Every day God reveals himself to us in his creation which surrounds us; he longs to show us the fullness of his glory and goodness, for us to admire it and give thanks. Then turn to Him in awe and wonder.
As I absorb the glory of His creation every day, I often wonder what His plans might be for my destiny, those I care for, and those around me every day?
Hope keeps us calm in the eye of a storm. Hope is an awareness that there is nothing too big for God to rescue us from and can even make something bigger and better out of the chaos.
These days, more than ever, it’s easy to be crushed by hopelessness and futility. But it is in these dire situations that hope can sustain us. Can offer us a lifeline; great promises are made in Psalm 91 to those in times of trouble.
God in Heaven longs for us to live in His hope.
He longs for those who love him to proclaim their faith through their lifestyle.
To let the way we live our lives shout out. There is so much more to life than this – we have hope of more in Jesus.
Living in hope is a way of changing sorrow into joy, ashes into garlands.
He longs for us to live with a heavenly perspective so that we might reach the destiny He has planned for us and go on to live for eternity with Him.
Without hope, we live in indifference or despair even, so why not live out our lives in the hope of God’s promises?
Today, my hopes and prayers are that you come to live in the hope of the amazing truths that Jesus brought to this world. Because living with hope in Jesus changes everything.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 (NRSV)
