Having Hope

DAILY VERSE

For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.

Romans 8:24-25

DEVOTION

When we have hope, we have nearly everything we need, as long as it’s directed toward Jesus Christ. Lack of hope leads to feelings of desperation and despair. Often, when we are tried, we focus on the trial rather than focusing on Jesus. Herein lies the problem. When we’re focused on the goodness of Jesus, we have hope overflowing.  

Norman Cousins said, “The capacity for hope is the most significant fact of life. It provides human beings with a sense of destination and the energy to get started.”
