Difficult times will touch everyone’s life at sometime or another. It may be a financial, family, or physical. It may be foreseen or not. Regardless, one must decide how they will respond. It really is important on how we respond on the onset of difficult times. Will we be hopeful or will be depressed and sadden? I encourage you to be hopeful and believe that the best is yet to come. In other words have faith. Faith is believing in something that you cannot see. Faith is the substance of things hoped for in the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1). Father Abraham believed God and it was counted unto him as righteousness.
Hebrews 6:12-15 New Life Version – 12 Do not be lazy. Be like those who have faith and have not given up. They will receive what God has promised them.
13 When God made a promise to Abraham, He made that promise in His own name because no one was greater. 14 He said, “I will make you happy in so many ways. For sure, I will give you many children.” 15 Abraham was willing to wait and God gave to him what He had promised.
Hope is defined as to cherish a desire with anticipation; to want something to happen or be true;trust; to desire with exception of obtainment or fulfillment; to expect with confidence.
