Hope, as used in the Bible, is defined as
Confident expectation in the promises of GOD.
There is no guessing or hoping as we have in English.
There is no tentativeness to the word.
It is much more tied to the word faith.
It isn’t based on anything in me.
But on the One in whom I put my hope…Jesus.
His promises are the ones I trust in.
Because they are as good as done.
When He promises heaven for His children
I can believe it.
Because Jesus fulfilled the requirements that made me
A Child of GOD in the first place!
“My hope is in the Lord
Who gave Himself for me…”
Because if what He has said isn’t true…
I am doomed. stop
Hallelujah! I am not doomed.
Because He is faithful to keep His promises.
I am forgiven. It is really true!
