Topic: Hope Never Dies [27/12/2016]
For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion. Ecclesiastes 9:4. Read: Rom 5:5
Hope never dies unless the recipient gives up his hope. When a man gives up hope on any endeavour of his life, it's tantamount to looming his life because hope is the anchor of life. Hope tells you all things are going to be alright, don't give up yet. Hope tells you in the midst of abnormality that all things will soon become normal again. With this kind of encouragement from within, persevere in whatever you are going through at that moment. A life without hope is a life without a certain future destination. Once you give up hope you give up life. Whatever the situation might be, you must deliberately keep hope alive because its all you've got to come out of that situation successfully. You must be hopeful positively not negatively. Many linger in their predicament not because they don't have hope but their hope is negative.
Hope is believing that something is going to happen or change to success. Much more than just hoping is acting upon your hope, i.e, what you believe on. How? For instance, the woman with issue of blood for twelve years believed (hope) in her heart that if she could but touch the hem of Jesus' garment, she will be made whole. Just because of her strong hope, she would not allow the crowd to stop her but pressed through to bring her healing to reality. She was healed of her plaque. Mk 5:25-34. Hope plus faith equals miracle. That living hope inside you plus little faith like mustard seed is the gateway to your breakthrough.
* Father, no matter what, don't let my hope ebb away even as I depend on You to bring it to reality through faith in You in Jesus name.
