And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. (Romans 5:5 NIV)
For reading and Meditation: Romans 5:1-5
Hope is likened to a light that one in darkness sees from afar. Although it doesn’t give him light in his darkness, it gives life to his mind to enable him survive the present dark hour. Hope keeps you going even when everything around seems to be failing, Hope assures you of a better
tomorrow. Hope, faith and patience are basic ingredients for daily survival in life. Anyone that is rich in these does not give up at all, even in the face
of the fiercest situations. Have you received any prophecy or word of promise from God and yet feel disappointed? Summon courage and wait for it. God will surely bring His word to pass.
Remember this: “For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and retureneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: so shall My word be that which goeth forth out of My month: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it”
(Isaiah 55:10-11). His promises are sure, if you put your faith in them you will never be disappointed.
