ROOTS OF HOPE
Our hope has to be anchored to something. How about this list of promises? Provision, answers, rewards, help, eternal life, heaven, salvation, Holy Spirit, spiritual gifts, forgiveness, peace, triumph over temptation, wisdom, empowerment, access to God, mercy and grace, freedom, discipline, love, resurrection. We can’t list them all- all the promises of God to us. His promises are the fertile soil for hope to flourish. They are wonderfully positive about our future. He leaves nothing to chance in our spiritual, emotional, social, intellectual and physical life. He will look after us in all circumstances and at all levels. We have all reason to be hopeful and no excuse not to be hopeful. How great he is!
