The Word of God tells us that hope is the precursor of faith. Without hope, there can be no faith because faith must have something to which to give substance (Hebrews 11:1).
Given this truth, it is no wonder that the enemy would seek to crush our hope. He knows that hope is the anchor of our souls (Hebrews 6:19). When we lose hope, our souls easily drift into the dangerous waters of doubt and unbelief. But when we have hope, our souls remain fixed and steadfast in the waters of faith.
Perhaps you are feeling hopeless today. If so, let me encourage you. When our well of hope runs dry, we can always get a refill at the Source of our Hope, Jesus Christ Himself. Turn to Him today in full assurance that He will restore our hope simply for the asking.
And when your hope is restored, go find someone who is hopeless and point him to Jesus.
With love and blessings,
