What Hope Looks Like – Pastor Dan and Erica Owings
2 Kings 3:16 – And he said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Make this valley full of ditches.’ For thus says the Lord: ‘You shall not see wind, nor shall you see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, so that you, your cattle, and your animals may drink. And this is a simple matter in the sight of the Lord.”
“Hope is a confident expectation in God’s goodness and providential care, even in the face of adverse circumstances.”
Hope is more than wishing something would change, hope is an expectation that the Lord is working on your behalf to change your circumstances. When we put our hope in God and His promises we can prepare just as the Israelites did and dig ditches because water is on the way. Let this message encourage you to stay in hope or rebirth hope in you if you have allowed it to diminish. What are you hoping (expecting) for?
