The “Rule of Threes”: “In a survival situation you can last three weeks without food, three days without water, three hours without shelter in extreme conditions, and three minutes without air. But you can’t make it three seconds without hope.”
John 14:16-17, “And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. You know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.”
1. Hope Intercedes in the Midst of Change
The Bible uses hope as “an assurance based on a conviction.”
Colossians 1:27reminds us of the source of hope, “Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
I wonder how many of my prayers are according to my will and not according to God’s will.
2. Hope is God’s Promise to see us Through the Change
When changes happen if you don’t believe God is in control even when things appear to be out of control you will struggle to get control.
God is not saying all things are good, but that He works His ways and His will together to accomplish His good.
God’s good for us is not our comfortability, but our conformity to Christ.
Titus 2:13, “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ.”
