Hope that Can’t Disappoint

Hope does not disappoint us. It doesn’t disappoint, according to the very Word of God in Romans 5:5, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit. How can we be disappointed by God’s love? It’s the most powerful thing in the world. Verse two says we’re to hope in the glory of God. God’s glory is revealed in the redemption of everything. Christ’s death on the cross and then rising again, the restoration of all creation. These are acts that reveal the glory of God. We cannot be disappointed in the hope offered us through Christ. God’s full redemption plan will come to completion. It’s a hope that cannot disappoint.

Hope for the Future

God’s plan for us should fill us with hope, not dread of the unknown. We know that He is good and that He loves us. He says that He has no plans to harm us. Do we trust Him? Do we believe His word? Then we have hope for our future.
