 Hope is a blessed thing. Biblical hope is one of the three great graces listed in 1Corinthians, it promises rest for the weary, and is so powerful that even in the most troublesome times the hopeful can rejoice and not be ashamed that trouble has fallen upon us. Paul wrote that the God of hope would fill us with all joy and peace in believing, that we may abound in hope. I pray that our hope is so evidently supernatural that people will ask, “What reason could you possibly have to be so hopeful?” May our answer always be, “Jesus.” Keeping our eyes on Jesus always makes our problems seem smaller.
