HOPE... A Precious Promise

 6.1.11



These are some of the lines I have highlighted on Romans by R.C Sproul.

"The only difference between hope and faith is that faith looks to what has already taken place, and we put our trust in it. Hope is merely faith looking forward" 

"Hope is the anchor that keeps us from being blown all over the place. It is the hope that God is going to do in the future every single thing he has said he will do. The fruit of justification is that kind of hope."

"Hope is not taking a deep breath and hoping things are going to turn out all right. It is assurance that God is going to do what he says He will do.... It is the solid stability that anchors the soul."


Lord,

We don't know what lies ahead.

We can't see beyond the moment we are living,

However, we can see YOU in your Word.

We can see the promises

that we have in Christ Jesus.

All Yes and Amen.

HOPE.

Hope is one of them.

No mountain will raise that you can't  help us climb.

No valley is to deep where we can't  see You.

No tomorrow is too uncertain

because You have been there.

Thank you, O God,

because You have justified us,

and in our justification we find

what we most desperately need:

Peace with You through our Lord Jesus Christ;
Access by grace into this wonderful grace
in which we firmly stand,

and rejoicing in HOPE of the

glory of God.

*****************


Praying for you, that your life may be anchored in that solid stability:

HOPE

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
