We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. (Romans 5:3-5)
God is truth. Because of this, God cannot lie and He never breaks promises! This stands forever! Embracing the promises of God brings comfort, joy, and peace as we navigate through life.
Whenever hope is lost, magnifying God’s goodness, His love, and His promises is what will reinforce hope in the hearts of those who love Jesus. A hopeful heart is also patient as we wait on the Lord to fulfill His promises to us. Our God is sovereign and His plans for us are good!
Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled. (Romans 15:4)
To be diligent can be defined as having or showing care and conscientiousness in one’s work or duties. Diligently visiting God’s word refreshes and renews not only our minds, but also reinforces our hope.
God’s word will never fails. The more that we are strengthened and encouraged ourselves, we are more able to continue to be the light and hope of Jesus.
