Deferred Hope ... or Assured Hope

There is no distance and nor delay

let us not defer our Hope (Jesus) and rather focus on Him, the Desire of our hearts - Jesus!

The Holy Spirit through the wise Solomon says Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. (Pro 13:12)

Jesus us our Living Hope. See my post titled Deferred ... or Living Hope?

We were not made to defer Hope

We were not made to be sick, experience setbacks, trouble, affliction or any kind of burden. 

Yet, they came by means of the fall, greatly tormenting all of human kind, all of God's beloved... until it was finished. Jesus finished all this on the cross, once and for all! 

The curse is reversed! 

Through His victory man's position to rule on earth was gloriously restored!

In the New Testament the Greek word  elpis  is translated as hope meaning a confident expectation

This is Jesus Christ. 
He is our Confident Expectation.
He is our all-victorious Saviour, our King of Glory!

We are restored

Because Jesus is what we know we can expect, we may count it for joy in all trails and tribulations. He is the One spread abroad in our hearts - in these (tribulations). 

We can exercise

Now we can exercise our faith in Him, our victorious One. 

In Him no trial, no tribulation, no setback, no affliction can stand and we have power to speak to each one of these mountains and reject what ever the enemy brings against us. 

We have a stead fast, unmovable, invincible Hope and His Name is Jesus our Christ, living in us! 


How can you say Jesus is Hope?

Paul says so!

For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 

But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. Rom 8:24-25:

Hope and Faith is the same Person

Check it out. See here and here

Our Hope, our confident expectation, comes through our faith. That is exactly why we can walk by Faith and not by sight. 

Our sure Expectation - the Substance of things hoped for, the Evidence of things unseen! 

And God provides in every way for Jesus IS the Author and the Finisher of our faith. 

In Him we shall endure!
