It is through Jesus Christ and what He has done for us that we are able to put our faith and hope in God. Your faith is based on God’s Word and nothing else. Jesus is the living Word made manifest and fulfilled all that was needed for us through His life, death, burial, and resurrection. So base your faith on the Word of God. Take hold of what scripture says about who you are, what you have, and what you can do. Focus fully on His Word and nothing else. Place you hope in God. Hope is a confident expectation of good. To keep your hope strong give praise and thanks to God everyday. Take time to fellowship with Him in the Word, and pray often in the Spirit for this will make you more aware of His presence. Hope will anchor you soul, helping to keep your mind, will, and emotions in check. With faith in His Word and your hope in God you will stand fast and overcome.
