Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Peter 1:3(KJV); Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
As a Born Again believer in Christ, HOPE IS YOUR NATURE.
Because it is your nature, you have no reason whatsoever to despair, to assume that you are at the end of your rope or to imagine that there is no possible answer to your present circumstance.
Yours is not a hope that can be lost.
Regardless of what you are going through, God does not expect you to feel like there is no more hope.
A lively hope means that God, in His unending goodness, has given you every reason to trust Him.
As long as you know that God is alive, your hope ought to be alive.
As long as you know that His Word works, your hope must remain active.
As long as you understand that He is the God who makes the impossible possible, who moves mountains, calms storms, and quenches fires, your hope must stand.
It doesn’t matter how dire the situation, it is in your nature to hope even when the circumstance discourages hope.
You can never be hopeless. You were built to be continually hopeful.

GOLDEN NUGGET: As a Born Again believer in Christ, HOPE IS YOUR NATURE. You can never be hopeless. You were built to be continually hopeful.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this knowledge. You are ever faithful and unchanging in every season. I trust in You above all things. Like my father Abraham hoped against hope, I am enduring in hope because I know in whom I have believed.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
