Hope in the Lord gives us courage

Good Morning Everyone,
 
Our theme for this month: “The power of hope”
 
Our Bible verse for today: “Having hope will give you courage. You will be protected and will rest in safety.” Job 11:18 (NLT)
 
Our thought for today: “Hope in the Lord gives us courage”
 
In life attitude is everything. When you have a good attitude, you can accomplish much and you will go far. Sour, negative people seldom do well. That’s because in general, we tend to get what we expect. We attract to ourselves the things we believe will happen. And so, if you approach life with a negative and hopeless attitude, chances are that lots of bad things are going to keep coming your way. Conversely, if you are positive and optimistic, if you approach life with a bright and cheery disposition and you expect good things to happen, usually they will.
 
 
Being a hopeful person is an important attribute when it comes to living a full and successful life. A sense of hopelessness is a serious liability which will certainly hold you back and drag you down.
 
Nobody on earth has more reasons to be hopeful than the children of God. God has a great and wonderful plan for each of our lives (Jeremiah 29:11); He has promised to watch over us and care for us (Matthew 6:25-33); He is in the process of developing us into the people He wants us to be (Philippians 1:6); and He has a glorious eternity prepared for us in heaven (John 14:1-3).
 
 
It’s true, nobody has more reason to be hopeful, joyful, and positive than a Christian. Although it’s not possible or realistic to be happy and joyful all the time, our natural disposition and our overall approach to life should be hopeful.
 
 
Hoping and trusting in the Lord gives us the courage we need to face the future with confidence and with the expectation of good things to come.
 
God Bless,
Pastor Jim
