The hope of the promise

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.

    AMen Lee….a thought I had this week in my quiet time.

    Psalm 44
    4Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.

    5Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.

    6For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.

    7But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.

    8In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever.

    Who do we put our hope in trust in? Do we place our hope and faith in ours or Christ and His word.

    Thanks Mike, good thoughts.

    Prov 13:12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
