Hebrews 10:23   “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.” 

Hope is such a small word but without it, we humans are doomed. Whether we know it or not, hope is what gets us up every morning and draws un into another day. However, my observation over recent years is that we are facing an unprecedent wave of hopelessness. So many people are losing hope during these troubled times.

As Christians, we know how easy it is to lose hope when we lose sight of Christ.

In Hebrews 10, the writer reminds us to live our faith rooted in hope. There is never a reason we cannot put our trust in our Saviour, persevering even when things seem bleak. That is our right and our responsibility as believers in Christ; because He will never fail us.

Hope in Jesus is never in vain. When it looks impossible that help will arrive in time, we can count on Him to save us. He is ready to send in a cavalry of faithful believers or provide another surprising way to rescue us.

And we should never be downcast (Psalm 43:5). God is waiting for us to bring all our worries and doubts to him in faith. He has a plan for our lives if we do not waver, remembering to cling to him when things get rocky along the journey.

Yes, we might feel like giving up sometimes because we do not know what to expect anymore. But our Saviour’s love and compassion should inspire us to press on. God is always with us, and His promises endure forever. We can lean on His Word with complete confidence.

There is no other way to learn the power of hope than to place our complete trust in God when confronted with seemingly insurmountable challenges, holding tight until the last hour, persevering, and trusting a blessing is coming our way.

Don’t lose hope. Keep hope alive, and do not be afraid (Mark 5:36), trusting God to lead us out of the darkness into His light, leading us through a new door of new opportunities.
