Hope is a foundation of faith and when hope is in place shame is displaced. In the physical state of life, it is impossible to reach out to what you have not seen but hope is a sure weapon to see the unseen and faith to reach out to it.
Faith is as a result of what you are hoping to get. So, without hope in place, faith has nothing to work on. Hope is a sustainer of faith. It is our unshakeable hopelessness that makes every hopeless situation reversed.
Faith is a relationship; it is a lifeline between God and the regenerated man. But without faith it is impossible to please Him; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and he is the rewarder of them that diligently seek Him, Heb 11:6 (KJV). Faith is the strength and vitality of Christianity. Faith at work is Christianity on the move.
The just shall live by faith simply means life can only be sustained as long as faith is at work. Outside of faith man merely exists. It is faith that turns existence into living.
If you expect the worse you will get the worse, and if you expect the best you will get the best. It is what you expect that you will experience. If thou can believe, all things are possible to him that believeth; Mark 9:23. The most powerful tools in this world is changing your mental habits to belief instead of disbelief, learn to expect not doubt.
By this action you will begin to bring everything into possibility. If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you; Matthew 17:20. Our problem in believing is that we do limit the solution to our problem to human capacity, so disbelieving easily set into our subconscious mind. We always let human we don’t let God.
People are defeated in life not because of lack of ability, but for lack of wholeheartedness. They do not wholeheartedly believe that they will succeed.
Hope is the expectation of something. Faith is believing that the expectation will come to reality. Faith and hope must be in place for your desire to be accomplished. Your hope without faith equals nothing.
Faith is a driving force that keeps your hope in place. Anytime we pray for a particular situation believing, our next step is expecting the reality of the answer to such prayer. Never doubt the reality of the answer to your prayer, doubt is the killer of faith.
