Hope That Leads to Love

Morning Glory...

Romans 5:5...And hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, Who has been given to us.

When hope has found its true resting place...love increases.
I am reminded of the story of Abraham and Sarah as they waited upon God to receive their blessing.

Romans 4:18 tells us that Abraham learned not to hope in his and Sarah's bodies (which were impotent), but to "hope" in the unfailing Promise that God had given him more than 25 years before he actually saw the fulfillment.

The Holy Spirit HAS been given to prove I Corinthians 13:8 to the believing heart..."love never fails".  He has been sent to fill us with this wonderful blessing, and to give our hope a true place of rest.

What are you hoping for?  Oh, place not your hope on the outcome.  Place it upon the Word of God that is a sure and firm foundation...2 Peter 1:19-21. 

Isaiah 55:11 unequivocally promises that God's Word will not return void, but will accomplish what it is sent forth to do.  It is backed by His Love that will never fail.  The Holy Spirit has been sent to us to assure our hearts, and to help us stand strong as we use our faith to believe for the true outcome.

Fix your heart upon God's Living Word today.
It will strengthen your hope.  It will build your faith.  It will overwhelm you with the love of God, and will cause you to receive the manifestation.

Loving Him and you,
Charlotte
