Is it important to have hope? Where do I find hope?
Today, more than ever we must find the source of where our hope comes from. Our world is filled with many things that can bring us down if we don’t have hope or know who our hope is in. It can even cause us to become physically ill. Proverbs 13:12 says this:
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.
So, where does our hope come from?
Our hope comes through the promises our Abba Father gave us, and there are many given to us throughout the Bible. Hope comes from knowing His son Jesus, and that all the amazing things He has done and continues to do for us, is because of His great love He has for each one of us. Our hope does not come from the things that we have around us, nor riches we may gain, nor is it in who our friends or family are—it is in ALL that God has promised to us through His Word. I really love how the Message Bible describes why we can hope in this.
