Saturday - Day 6

Where Is Your Hope?
Romans 8:24-25: "For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience."
The definition of the word hope is “to trust in, wait for, look for, or desire something or someone”. We all have experienced that hope. Remember when you were a kid, hoping for that one special gift for Christmas? The excitement when you first see all the gifts under the tree, and hope that one of them is that gift. And then you remove the wrapping paper and there it is, the joy is indescribable. There are many stories of hope in the Bible. David hoped to overcome Goliath, even when others doubted it. Abraham hoped for children, even though Sarah was old. The woman with the issue of blood was hopeful she would be healed, if only she could touch Jesus’s garment. All of these stories show people that were hopeful of what they hadn’t seen come to pass yet. Where is your hope today?
One of the greatest gifts we can give the hopeless, is hope. The Word of God brings hope to a world that has no hope. I encourage you to share your hope with others, and see them open that gift and experience this indescribable joy!
Lord, I thank you for giving me boldness to share with others the hope that I have in you. To be thankful everyday for the hope you have given me, for without you Lord, I am hopeless. In Jesus Name, Amen!
