A Glory Seed Devotional

Keeping Hope Alive…

Every now and then I can still here my good friend Robert Campbell not only enthusiastically saying, “Keep hope alive!” but passionately living it as well. In case you’re wondering how he could base his life on keeping hope alive he knew without a doubt God always does what he plans and his plans are to bless us. He knew that hope is never about “what ifs” instead I knew and based his life on “God will”.

One of the most powerful scriptures laying the foundation for keeping hope alive is found in chapter 1 of the apostle Paul letter to the Ephesians. It not only lays a foundation for keeping hope alive but comes with a guarantee!

“God always does what he plans, and that’s why he had Christ choose us… Christ also brought you the truth, which is the good news about how you can be saved. You put your faith in Christ and were given the promised Holy Spirit to show that you belong to God. The Spirit also makes us sure that we will be given what God has stored up for his people. Then we will be set free, and God will be honored and praised.” (Ephesians 1:11, 13–14, CEV)

Words of hope for today, tomorrow, and every day thereafter here they are: God always does what he plans and his plans are to bless you! And if you want to know how long hope will be alive here’s the answer, Hope will be alive as long as God is alive!

Believe it! Experience it!

Grace and PEACE,

Gary
