A Blessed Hope

On a myPhotoWalk in a beautiful Rose Garden in Newport Beach, California, I couldn’t help but notice this one particular rose.

It just stood out among all the flowers with its delicate petals bent in an inviting way and the myriad of colors with yellow, pink and orange all blending together.

And that’s the way it is when God gives you a promise in His Word that seems custom-designed just for you. It stands out among all the powerful words of the Bible. It has your name seemingly written on it as it meets the very need of the hour for you.

That promise has power in it through the Holy Spirit. It’s great work in your heart is to give you hope.

A blessed hope.

Why “blessed”? Because the ability to “hold on with patient expectation” is like a refreshing shower of relief in your soul after the heaviness of a difficult circumstance. Hope lifts the pressure and sets your heart free.

Peter said it this way —

By His divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know Him, the One who called us to Himself by means of His marvelous glory and excellence. And because of His glory and excellence, He has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share His divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires. In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises.
2 Peter 1:3-5 NLT

Oh yes, the promises in God’s Word are great and precious. And Paul also shows us the beauty of God’s promises when he writes that “the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled” (Romans 15:4).

Do you need some hope today? Then, dear friend, open the pages of God’s Word and find a promise, embrace that promise, trust the promise, and then live the promise.
