These past few weeks we’ve been talking about the hope that is Jesus. The hope that was foretold hundreds of years before His birth. The hope that we can experience right now, in our current circumstances.
But what about tomorrow? What about in the days to come? Will hope be?
In short: Absolutely.
The truth is that Jesus is the same hope yesterday, today and forevermore (Hebrews 13:8). Forevermore. That truth is not conditional, meaning no matter what happens, no matter what comes, Jesus will ALWAYS be hope.
What if we’re in a tough situation, or walking through a really nasty valley currently?
What’s down the road for us?
Read this truth:
Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary. Jesus has already gone in there for us.
He is the hope that lies before us.
No matter what we’re walking through, we can have great confidence in the hope that lies before us; great confidence in Him. More than that (if it weren’t already more than enough), Jesus is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. That means that if we did nothing but hold on to Him, our souls would still have an anchor-point.
When we don’t have the ability to see beyond our current situation, into what will be, we have to remember that even then: He will be our hope.
