WHAT ARE YOU HOPING FOR

WHAT ARE YOU HOPING FOR

It is natural for children to trust in their parents, even though parents sometimes fail to keep their promises. Our Heavenly Father, however never makes promises He won’t keep. Nevertheless, His plan may take more time than we expect. What are we waiting for? 24 For in this hope we were saved [by faith]. But hope [the object of] which is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he already sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait eagerly for it with patience and composure. Rom. 8:24-25

Our Victory in Christ – Rather than acting like impatient children as we wait for God’s Will to unfold, we should place our confidence in God’s Goodness and Wisdom. 26 In the same way the Spirit [comes to us and] helps us in our weakness. We do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit Himself [knows our need and at the right time] intercedes on our behalf with sighs and groanings too deep for words. Rom. 8:26

As a Believer, you are not left to your own resources to cope with problems. Even when you don’t know the right words to pray, the Holy Spirit prays with and for you, and God answers. With God helping you pray, you don’t need to be afraid to come before Him. 27 And He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because the Spirit intercedes [before God] on behalf of God’s people in accordance with God’s will. Rom. 8:27

Ask the Holy Spirit to intercede for you “in accordance with the Will of God.” Then, when you bring your requests to God, trust that He will always do what is best. 28 And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose. Rom. 8:28

God works in “All things” – not just isolated incidents – for our good. This does not mean that all that happens to us is good. Evil is prevalent in our fallen world, but God is able to turn every circumstance around for our long-range good. God is not working to make us happy, but to fulfill His Purpose.  Those who are “Called” are those the Holy Spirit convinces and enables to receive Christ. 30 And those whom He predestined, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified [declared free of the guilt of sin]; and those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity]. Rom. 8:30
