There is a sense of satisfaction that sets in when we hope to achieve what God has made us dream about. Yes, God made you and makes you dream, and it’s this same dream that gives you hope to continue and never consider giving up.
How do human beings that have no dreams behave? They’re hopeless and depressed!
Now, how about a hopeful human being? They have dreams and motivation!
God gave you dreams in order to give you hope! Yes, hope that your dreams will become a reality. For this you need to have Him as your Instructor, so you may be filled with joy, whatever may happen! For example, I can hope to get married, but I shouldn’t depend on that to have peace, joy, or a reason to live, as I already have a reason before even making the decision to get married.
Now may the God of hope fill you with all Joy and Peace… Romans 15:13 NKJV
So this Joy and True Peace come regardless of having achieved, or not, what you most desire. But because you have hope, you will surely achieve it! “Will I only have hope when I achieve what I want?”. No! If you have God, who is Hope Himself, then you already have Joy and Peace even before reaching your goal. So, imagine what happens next?
…in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 NKJV
So, the Power of God will manifest itself, because you believe, and seek to serve the God of Hope, Joy and Peace, regardless of whether or not you achieved your goal! But God’s Word says that this only happens through “our belief in Him”! We must believe in Him and the time is NOW!
Whoever believes in the Power of God has Joy and Peace. When they reach their goal, it’s to enjoy and glorify God through it. God fulfilled you so that you may glorify Him through your testimony and enjoy your victory!
God wants you to be rich in hope. And what is a rich person? Is it in how they act, walk or smile? A rich person is someone who is filled with hope and full of confidence. Someone that has peace, joy and is full of God’s Wealth and Power of the Holy Spirit.
