The Holy Spirit and Hope
When we think about the present day work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer we tend to think about words like power, fire, wind , tongues- all words that describe the works of the Spirit. But what about hope.The scripture shows that hope is a work of the Spirit too!
GOD THE FATHER
The source of hope
GOD THE SON
The course of hope
GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT
The force of hope
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
HOPE IS A CONFIDENT EXPECTATION OF GOOD
HOPE IS OUR IMAGINATION WORKING FOR US INSTEAD OF AGAINST US
HOPE IS THE ATMOSPHERE THAT FAITH GROWS IN
WE NEED TO GET OUR HOPES UP
