Keys To Keeping Your Hope Alive In The Lord

Hope is a powerful force. lt arouses your mind to explore every possible angle. lt enables you to overcome the daunting obstacles. lt's absolutely essential to the life God wants you to live. lt's the fuel your heart runs on. lt is the single biggest difference between those who persevere and those who give up.

Hope is what makes couples say, 'l DO', without any guarantees, and later, after all the broken promises, pick up the pieces and try again knowing it can get better. Hope is what made Abraham leave home without knowing where God was taking him.(Hebrews 11:9-10). lt made Paul challenge the powers of Rome. lt is what fuelled the Old Testament prophets to keep preaching for the deliverance and salvation of God's people.(Jeremiah 14:10-11).

This is not blind optimism, but faith FOCUSED, and HOPE--in God. 'You have been my confidence since my youth' ( Psalm 71:5 NIV). You can survive the loss of many things, but not the loss of hope. Nobody experienced greater loss than Job, yet he wrote: 'Having hope will give you courage.' So KEEP YOUR HOPE ALIVE by trusting in God .
