Hope-in Christ Alone

Image may contain: mountain, outdoor and nature

Hope is to expect with confidence that God will show up. It is trusting that in spite of the darkness that seems to be closing in that God is faithful. However be joyful in the fact that you can trust God in these difficult situations. Placing your hope on God is difficult in the midst of affliction because our natural tendency is to get out and to run away. But God asks us to wait patiently in the affliction, why? First because difficult situations and persecution produce trust. Second because God is more interested in our growth in character than in our comfort. So how is this possible to be joyful in hope and patient in affliction? Well the key is to be faithful in prayer. Pray without ceasing and trust that God will use every difficult thing that happens to us for His glory. Lean into JESUS and rely on Him to guide you, strengthen you, and encourage you.#leanintojesus #his #prayfervently #trustgod
