These are some of the lines I have highlighted on Romans by R.C Sproul.
“The only difference between hope and faith is that faith looks to what has already taken place, and we put our trust in it. Hope is merely faith looking forward”
“Hope is the anchor that keeps us from being blown all over the place. It is the hope that God is going to do in the future every single thing he has said he will do. The fruit of justification is that kind of hope.”
“Hope is not taking a deep breath and hoping things are going to turn out all right. It is assurance that God is going to do what he says He will do…. It is the solid stability that anchors the soul.”
We don’t know what lies ahead.
We can’t see beyond the moment we are living,
However, we can see YOU in your Word.
We can see the promises
that we have in Christ Jesus.
All Yes and Amen.
Hope is one of them.
No mountain will raise that you can’t help us climb.
No valley is to deep where we can’t see You.
No tomorrow is too uncertain
because You have been there.
Thank you, O God,
because You have justified us,
and in our justification we find
what we most desperately need:
Peace with You through our Lord Jesus Christ;
Access by grace into this wonderful grace
in which we firmly stand,
and rejoicing in HOPE of the
glory of God.
Praying for you, that your life may be anchored in that solid stability:
