Give Me Hope Podcast
Please Give Me Hope O’ God
The Bible is full of times when people or a community of people had hope when they were met with despair, hope for a better day, a day when things were not so bad. They had the same hope when they were waiting for the coming of a Messiah. The Messiah finally came and His name was Jesus Christ.
Those that realized He was the true Messiah, turned their hope into joy. A Savior has arrived who is going to save them from their iniquities and bring them a New Covenant with God that promises everlasting eternal life.
Hope For Things That Have Value
Some use hope in vain. They use it to dream about things that will please themselves. This is a false hope, one that has no value, one that is geared towards selfishness. Hope leads to faith and faith leads to works that prove God’s promises.
God did give us promises with stipulations attached to them. We need to practice faith in order to get to know God and Jesus Christ and also to receive The Holy Spirit.
Are You Ready For The Return of Jesus?
Many people for years have been hoping for the day that Jesus Christ returns. They know that when He does return, a new world will follow that is filled with peace, love and all the good fruits that the Spirit brings (Galatians 5: 22).
Heaven and earth will be filled with so much joy, a joy that can’t even be comprehended. No more evil, hate and corruption, only love for one another.
We all go through bad times, it could be from an illness, a bad traffic accident, a job loss, losing your house to a disaster, or whatever it is that brings us hardships.
Some people get lost in the darkness of self-pity, while others have hope for a better outcome. These are the ones that are strong and know that God will see them through their difficult times. Why? Because they have Faith. They pray, “O’ God, give me hope”.
If hope is targeted in the right way, it will build the foundation for faith and faith will bring results. Faith builds strength for those who who work it the right way.
Being Negative is the Easy Way Out
It’s so much easier to complain and wallow in self-pity because there is no work involved in going this route. It’s like time after time you buy a lottery ticket and sit there for days hoping to win the lottery.
Winning the lottery will not solve all of your problems. There is no gain in this type of hope, it builds nothing. If you did eventually win, you would have nothing that is everlasting, only temporary.
Spread Your Love All Around the World
One of the ways that hope will work for a good cause is when people visualize their fellow man turning towards God and accepting Jesus Christ as their Savior. This is a positive attitude that flows out all over the world, filled with love that touches our fellowman and God.
Through hope, we can make a major change in the world, provided that we back it with faith and love. This is how we are filled with God’s love, by thinking of God and the welfare of our fellowman and forgetting about ourselves. Pray to God, “Give me hope now”, and believe that He will. Trust in God, He loves you.
