As we continue to Look at and talk about Hope.? I want to share a few verses we can cling to and a few things we can do when we feel like there’s no hope.
1.) Have courage to Hope- ?Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.? (Psalms 31:24 KJV)
When we have courage ?HE (GOD) shall strengthen your heart all ye that Hope in the Lord.?
2.) Hope Continually-?But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.? (Psalms 71:14 KJV)
When we hope continually we will praise more and more. Praise is the highest form of worship and when we worship and trust we have more hope!
When we as Christians begin to have hope we can then help others find hope and that is when we can change the world one person at a time with hope!
Here are a few quick things to help us have more Hope and as we help others hope find Hope!
?For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.? (Romans 8:24-25 KJV)
3.) We need to wait with patience for the Hope that we cannot see.
?Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.? (Romans 8:26-27 KJV)
4.) We need to be praying for one another in Hope.
?And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.? (Romans 8:28 KJV)
5.) We need to know and realize all things really do work for good. Even in Adversity and heart ache God still loves us, He still cares and He’s still there.
?What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?? (Romans 8:31-32 KJV)
6.) We need to realize that God is for us. He wants his very best for us. So who can be against us? And as we keep trusting in that Hope and that fact and realize that God really does love us.? God loves us so much he spared not his son but delivered him up for us freely. That’s real love in action! And something we can have Hope in daily!
?He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, for thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.? (Romans 8:32-37 KJV)
7.) No one can condemn us because he, Jesus, is alive for us evermore. And we have Hope in the very fact that nothing separates us from the love of God and again you see we’re more than conquerors. Live in that fact and that confidence!
?For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.? (Romans 8:38-39 KJV)
8.) And the last thing we need to know is that there is real Hope. And that there’s nothing that can separate us from the love of God!
Remember You Matter!
