Hope

Hope – John Polkinghorne

Hope is much more than a mood. It involves a commitment to action…What we hope for should be what we are prepared to work for and do bring about as far as that power lies in us.

The Hardest Thing in Your Life – Lilias Trotter

Take the very hardest thing in your life – the place of difficulty, outward or inward, and expect God to triumph gloriously in that very spot. Just there He can bring your soul into blossom.

Sins Against Hope – Ferdinand Kerstiens

The sins against hope are despair, as anticipated failure, and presumption, as anticipated fulfillment. In both these cases man seeks to break out of his pilgrim existence and have his life otherwise than from the hand of God.

Jesus is Our Strength and Song – Charles Spurgeon

Let this one great, gracious, glorious fact lie in your spirit until it permeates all your thoughts and makes you rejoice even though you are without strength. Rejoice that the Lord Jesus has become your strength and your song – He has become your salvation.

– Charles Spurgeon –


Jesus is the Victor! – Basilea Schlink

Do not be lazy. Run each day’s race with all your might, so that at the end you will receive the victory wreath from God. Keep on running even when you have had a fall. The victory wreath is won by him who does not stay down, but always gets up again, grasps the banner of faith and keeps on running in the assurance that Jesus is Victor.

– Basilea Schlink –
