It's The Season of Hope
Advent season is upon us and it starts with Hope. Maybe it is different for you but I have learned the hard way that wishing and hope are not the same thing. My experience has taught me that hope is far better than wishing. Hope is based on our faith, which is grounded in our belief, and supported by God through His Holy Spirit in us and His Word.
Wishing is like our chances at winning the lottery in that it is motivated by want but not backed with any spiritually based faith or action. Check your experience…
“We hope you are convinced now that God can remove whatever self-will has blocked you off from Him.” Big Book pg 71
Lord, let our hope be confident in Your word and grounded in our faith in You, AMEN.
“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
Have a blessed day y’all!
