Unlike the promises offered by men or wealth, or fame, there is a real genuine hope offered by the promise of God. Being fully able to deliver that which He has promised, and being unable to go back on the promise, the promise of God is a surety of the highest sort. It is this that offers a hope like no other, a hope which cannot be extinguished. Do you have this hope?
It comes with believing God, and like Abraham ‘being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform’. To believe the God who made the promise, and trust that He is able to perform it is the definition of faith! Do you have this faith?
God has written many things in His word, do you believe them? Do you trust them? Your hope will be in accordance with the measure of your belief and your trust. The doubter’s hope will perish, the truster’s hope will flourish. Take God at His word for this blessed hope which is found in Christ.
Here are some promises
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Acts 16:30-31…Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved…
Trust them, and you too will know ‘the hope of the promise made of God’ -Acts 26:6.
