God promises hope. Visualize the beautiful image of a door of hope, a door that leads to blessings. God is that door of hope. He will turn the valley of trouble into a door of hope. He has big plans for you!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
When our hope is in God, our future is certain. His plans for us are good and our future is bright so that it glorifies Him.
When our hope is in God we have joy in all circumstances. It doesn’t matter what is happening in our lives, whether it was in our plans or not, or whether we understand it or not. Our hope is in God so we take each step as He directs and we have joy and peace because of Him. God promises that our hope, when it is in Him, will not be cut off.
There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. (Proverbs 23:18)
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. (Romans 12:12)
