Is it normal to hear the words adversity and hope in the same sentence?
“1. To wish for something with expectation of its fulfillment.
2. Archaic To have confidence; trust.”
It may be argued that the dictionary meaning of hope and the biblical definition are not one of the same. One biblical meaning is as follows:
Hope is a firm assurance regarding things that are unclear and unknown.”
2010 did not unfold how I envisioned. I had my priorities all wrong. Nowhere in my 2010 recipe was God my main ingredient. Boy oh boy, did I make a blunder.
The fantastic news is this – owing to the Blood of Jesus, I get another chance!
Let’s try and put some perspective on the statement above. Now, I’ve always heard this statement, however, it was not until January 2011 when I really got a deeper meaning and understanding of this statement, thanks to Creflo Dollar.
He has been doing a series on The Blood of Jesus. Most of us have heard about the Adam and Eve saga. They both ate the forbidden fruit and were sentenced to a life of sin thereafter. Now hands down, we are all sinners – day in day out we all commit some kind of sin. Now, owing to the fact that the blood of Jesus was shed, we get several chances to try and get it right. Adam and Eve had one chance, and they blew it. Owing to the blood, we stand a better chance than they did.
It’s never too late, hope can always be renewed.
