“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” – Hebrews 11:1
The God we serve is a God of promises. And when He makes a promise, He will keep it. God always does what He says He will do. There is no doubt about it. Your family might fail you. Your friends might fail you. Your girlfriend or boyfriend might fail you. But God will NEVER FAIL YOU.
When God gives us promises, we can have HOPE. But this isn’t a cross-your-fingers kind of hope. This isn’t wish upon a star and hope it comes true. This is a hope that KNOWS if God said it, it will come to be.
Hebrews 11:1 tells us, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
The type of hope we can have is assurance. We can go to sleep assured that God will deliver. That is the difference between hoping in God and hoping in others. It’s not a “wait and see” type of thing.
You might have to wait on God’s timing. Sometimes God’s promises aren’t immediate. But even when they aren’t they are still sure. Everything God ever promises will come to be. That is the hope you have in God.
One day, Jesus will return and defeat the devil. Sin will be no more. God will make heaven on earth. And if you are a believer, you get to share in the eternal glory of our Lord and Savior. That is the HOPE you can have TODAY.
It is not something you have to wish for. It is not something you cross your fingers and try to believe in. It is sure. It will come to be. There is nothing like HOPING in Jesus, am I right?
Take some time to thank God today, that He means what He says and says what He means. Thank Him that His promises are sure and that you can have an unfailing hope in Him!
