Biblical hope is rooted in a confidence that, although you haven’t yet received what God has promised, you know you will.
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The LORD is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made.
I love the story of an elderly Korean woman who attended a morning prayer meeting every day with a pair of her husband’s shoes. She put them at the front of the church and prayed, “Lord, here are my husband’s shoes. I believe one day he’ll be here to fill them.” One year later, those shoes were filled. Her husband came with her and placed his faith in Jesus Christ.
If you’ve asked God to change your circumstances, if you’ve claimed His promise for yourself or for someone you love, how are you demonstrating your faith? Biblical hope isn’t based on “hope so.” It’s rooted in a confidence that, although you haven’t yet received what God has promised, you know you will.
What shoes do you have to put before the Lord? The Lord is faithful to all His promises!
