Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.Hebrews 11:1
There is an undeniable link between faith and hope. Faith is the confidence in our expectation. Without faith, there is no hope. Without hope…well, we are not truly alive.
I do not speak this week about hope in the natural world. Those things we long after, that can be attained through effort and determination. Promotions, notoriety, wealth…
I speak about HOPE. Confident expectation that in this life, I will not be alone. It is knowing I am forgiven, redeemed and adopted by God with full rights of a natural born child. I am a co-heir with Jesus!
I know I will live eternally and inherit all the riches of heaven right alongside Jesus and everyone else who believes in Him.
That is my HOPE!
Do you have hope? The confident expectation that tomorrow is okay because you know who holds it? The knowledge that your future is provided for, paid for in full? This song explains it so well. I invite you to respond to God’s invite today!
