Warm greetings and happy Easter! Easter commemorates the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and brings the good news that God is replacing despair with hope, brokenness with healing and death with life.
The “Merriam-Webster dictionary defines hope as: “A desire with anticipation: to want something to happen or be true. But divinely guaranteed expectation or biblical hope is special—and different. It originates from God, through His word, not from human desire. God is the guarantor of His every promise. He is the only one with infinite power, the power to bring all that He has spoken of to pass.
“For when he spoke, the world began! It appeared at his command” (Psalm 33:9, NLT).
2020 threw all of us curveballs that derailed many plans and caused us to learn to innovate in extraordinary ways. But let’s get our hopes up dear friends! A life of genuine faith begins when human beings allow the good news of God’s word to ignite hope in their hearts.
When we hear God’s word through the Scriptures and allow them to ignite divinely guaranteed expectations in our hearts, this inspires hope. Hope paves the way for conviction and belief; true faith will follow.
“Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]” (Hebrews 11:1, AMP).
When we become convinced that what God has said is true, our faith in God serves as proof that what we believe will be made manifest.
