Sometimes hope is hard to keep a firm grip on, it can be easily swayed by emotions and circumstances. Our hope is easily weak if we have not firmly planted it and grown deep roots in the word's of God. Hope can not be called upon if it has not already been cultivated and grown. If you haven't planted the seeds of hope you would be silly to expect a harvest. If hope is not in God it becomes only wishful thinking, it will weaken into a mere glimmer of the the picture that once was. We must move out of that place of doubt and weak hope if we want to see all the wonderful things God has planned for us. We must dig into the words of life, let them refresh and renew, spend time dreaming and seeing ourselves in that place we want to be. We need to live a life of expectancy, we need to believe that what the Lord said He would do He will do.
For in this Hope we are saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all.
Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. In the same way, the spirit helps us in out weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the spirit, because the spirit intercedes for Gods people in accordance with the will of God.
And we know that all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his propose. For those whom God fore-knew he also predestined them to be conformed the image of his son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified he also glorified.
What then, shall we say in response to these things ? If God is for us, then who can be against us ?
He who did not spare his own son, but gave him up for us all- how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things ? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen ? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns ? no one. Christ Jesus who died-more than that, who was raised to life- is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of christ ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or dander or sword ? No, in all these things we are more than conquerers through him that loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth nor any else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
As always keep hoping in Him.
