How Does Faith Give Me Hope?
Hope is one of the most powerful emotions we experience as humans. Through hope, we are able to endure any trials while looking toward what is on the other side.
The hope we find through faith is the greatest hope of all. There is nothing in this world that compares to it! That’s because our God is a God of hope. When we embrace our role as His children, He pours hope over us abundantly. He wants nothing more than for us to know that our future is secure in Him.
How does our faith bring hope into our lives? These three truths are our answer.
We Have Eternal Life in Christ
Just as Jesus rose from the grave, so too will we rise up into eternal life. This is what has been promised to us by the Lord, and we can trust fully that it will come to pass. Knowing this, we can walk boldly forth in our God-given purpose in this life.
There will be storms in life, there’s no doubt about that. But no matter what those storms are, they are nothing in comparison to God and His mighty love. His promise of eternal life far out shadows anything we will ever experience in this life. We can let God’s promise of eternal life build up immeasurable hope in our hearts!
We Have Been Chosen by God for a Purpose
God envisioned you before you were even born. He put together a plan and purpose for your life while you were still in the womb. As you grow in spiritual maturity, God desires nothing more than to walk by your side as you get closer and closer to walking in that purpose. He will equip you with everything you need to see it through to fruition.
Your God-given purpose will come to define your life. It will give meaning and focus to everything you do. Your purpose will also fill you to the brim with hope because you know that no matter what happens, the work you do has an impact on God’s everlasting kingdom.
God Loves us More Than we Could Ever Comprehend
If you remember just one thing from this article, let it be this: God loves you more than you could ever comprehend! His love for you is boundless and unmeasurable. He longs to draw you closer and closer to Him because He made you from an overflow of His love. His love will follow you throughout your life and bring with it unbreakable hope.
Romans 15:13 says, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
This prayer is the same that we here at Godly Cru have for you. That’s exactly why we created our God of Hope design. We pray that it is a constant reminder of the hope that God pours into our lives.
