“I could ponder the problem, or I could remember the promise. I could choose anxiety, or I could choose hope. I opted for hope.“
– Max Lucado
Sometimes we forget to hope because we forget the promise.
The promises of God aren’t to be taken lightly. What God says, God means. He is faithful. He cannot lie (Hebrews 6:18).
And God’s promises are good.
“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness . . .
by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature.”
(2 Peter 1:3-4)
I need to remember his promises more, especially when I start to worry. His promises are my avenue to participate with him in an abundant life.
God’s promises come from his character. And God’s character is Love. Because of his love, hope can abound.
I hold to the promises. I opt for hope.
