His Hope Abides!!!
“And so faith, hope, love abide [faith — conviction and belief respecting man's relation to God and divine things; hope — joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation; love — true affection for God and man, growing out of God's love for and in us], these three; but the greatest of these is love.” - 1 Cor. 13:13 AMP- This word abide carries the meaning of to remain or stay in a fixed position. Faith, hope and love will always exist. They always remain. I believe the Lord is calling us to look away from the temporal and hold on to the eternal. So many are going through unbelievably tragic suffering and trials. God gives us these eternal elements to help us traverse our difficulties and lean forward into His purposes. Hope is a confident expectation. Hope lifts our eyes to look at the future God holds for us. Our circumstances are temporal but our hope is not!! Our hope will hold us in place until our answer arrives. Hope holds us; it fortifies us in the midst of the turmoil. Hope keeps us fixed on God and held by His promise. May His eternal hope release strength and joy into your very souls today!!! Love from WILD!
