Biblical “Hope”- the definition Is “Confident expectation” not based on “chance,” or “wishful thinking” but based on God, and His Word!

The word speaks of A certainty of Future Good and so we can confidently say with expectation, “We know that GOD Causes ALL THINGS to work together for good, to those who love God. and are the called according to His purpose…” The Good ultimately? “…to become conformed to the image of His Son, “To become like His Son…- {Rom 8:28-29}. God causes “all things,” good things, bad things, “all things” are under His authority leading to His end, your spiritual and eternal good! His Magnificent promise – to work ultimately for your eternal good!-{v 29}.

So whatever is happening we can Hope in God and His Word and have “confident expectation” that He is working “good,” and He will fulfil His Promise! He “causes,” and no one can stop Him .“God causes…” He has the ability, authority, Sovereignty to bring it about, and it is He who is working it “all” not some of it but “all” of it for “good” for those who “love God and are the called,” and nothing or no one can thwart Him from achieving His “purpose!!”

So, we don’t live by “chance,” uncertainty, but by “confident expectation” in God and His Word! At times as one dear friend once shared with me, “it may not feel good, look good, but He promises it will work out for good!” So, go forward in faith, not based on what you see or don’t see but on what He says and Who He is, “The God of all Hope…”

I leave you with this prayer for you and for YOU to pray for SOMEONE ELSE,

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”-{Rom 15:13}

Our Hope is not based on what we see But on What He says! It will Happen Because He has Said it will, and He stakes His Word and Reputation on it!

Remember; Biblical Hope Is A Certainty Not A Maybe!
