Hope Redefined – Simeon from Luke 2

Hope is based on promise not on probabilities. And God is a promise keeper

Psalm 145:13

For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule throughout all generations. The Lord always keeps his promises; he is gracious in all he does.

Hope looks ahead with certainty. It is the confident expectation of good things that are still to happen.

Numbers 23:19

God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?

Hope produces joy. The joy of anticipation: our hope will come to reality. Hope in trusting God hoping he will deliver.

Romans 12:12

Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.

Hope is a person. All I want for Christmas is Jesus.

Luke 2:30‭-‬32

I have seen your salvation, which you have prepared for all people. “He is a light to reveal God to the nations, and he is the glory of your people Israel!”

Please consider..

2 Corinthians 12:20

For I am afraid that when I come I won’t like what I find, and you won’t like my response. I am afraid that I will find quarreling, jealousy, anger, selfishness, slander, gossip, arrogance, and disorderly behavior.
