This series is looking at hope and how to have hope when our circumstances don’t seem to be changing.
Hope believes that right now things are changing, even if we can’t see the difference. Hope believes that right now God is working on my circumstances. I can align my belief with a choice to believe that God’s got a plan at work on things even as I see no change in the natural.
Sometimes just saying out loud a truth can be very helpful. “Right now God is bringing conviction to people. Right now God is working on getting the attention of my loved ones on Him, even if they don’t believe in God or attend church. Right now God is working on our government. Right now God is giving me favor with my boss. Right now, God is at work on my prayer requests that agree with scripture. Right now, God is fulfilling His words in scripture and prophecy.” These sentences are true and cut through the soulish doubts to the spirit part of us, and we are strengthened.
2 Corinthians 3:18 confirms that “we all, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” This is ongoing, not just on good days or super spiritual days. We are constantly moving forward every day, little by little. With the Holy Spirit, we can believe He is at work and it is for good purposes.
