Hope in the New Year
Biblical Hope is the confidence that God is able to do what He says and the certainty to trust His character.
Hope is fueled by the conviction that God is able. (Romans 4:18–21)
Hope is rooted in the assurance that we have peace with God through Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1–11)
Hope is nourished through the encouragement of the Scriptures (Romans 15:14)
Hope grows by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13)
You will never experience the wow of hope and peace until you experience the woe of repentance.
Your hope is only limited by your view of the character of God.
