Tuesday 6th December, Today’s Article: The Essence Of Hope (Rhapsody of Realities Today)

THE ESSENCE OF HOPE NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things
[we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses](Hebrews 11:1
AMPC).

Hope is usually in the future, something you look forward to or desire in front of you. It’s a picture or an image of a desired future; a picture of a future accomplishment, possession or fulfilment. Faith, however,
is the essence of hope. In other words, until you hope, that image or picture has no life. That’s why hope is so important.

Hope is powerful. When people become hopeless, they could give up, and die. But once you have hope, then the thing you’re hoping for suddenly becomes a possibility; you see that it exists.

Hope is like “potential energy”; which means it’s a possibility that could be realized if you could “look” at it with your spirit because that’s when it becomes real. This is why hope must translate to faith for it to produce results. With hope, you see the blessings that could result from acting on God’s Word. But with faith, you take possession, you walk in the blessing. Hallelujah!

PRAYER

Dear heavenly Father, thank you for the blessed hope we have in Christ. I see pictures of possibilities as I apply your Word in my health, finances, life, and ministry, and I have the confident assurance that Christ in me means glory in every area of my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
