Expect His Goodness (Colossians 1:27)

To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

Colossians 1:27 (KJV)

The word hope can also be translated confident expectation. Biblical hope is to look to the future with confidence and expectancy, always expecting God’s glory to manifest in our lives. And it is because of Christ in us—indwelling our born again spirit—that we can have this confidence that no matter what is going on in the natural, something good is happening to us today.

Lay Hold Of The Newness Of Life (Philippians 3:12)

Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.

Philippians 3:12 (NKJV)

We are continually called to press on to lay hold of all that God has prepared for us. May we be comfortable with the journey, with the fact that we are still a work in progress, yet may we always press more fully towards who we have been created to be in Him. Each day offers a fresh opportunity to let go of the old, and to lay hold of the newness of life in Christ Jesus.

The Power Of The Resurrection (1 Peter 1:3)

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,

1 Peter 1:3 (KJV)

The resurrection of Jesus is something that should always be central to us, for in it lies the power that enables us to live successful and victorious lives. The victory that Jesus has won for us is our victory over the flesh and over all of the forces of darkness. The hope we have in Him is a lively hope: it is our confident expectation that we will see God’s goodness, glory and unmerited favor in the here and now as well as in eternity.

The Love Of God Brings Hope (Romans 5:5)

And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

Romans 5:5 (ESV)

When we receive the love of God into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, hope begins to envelop us. We may walk with a calm reassurance, a quiet confidence that we will see the goodness of God in our lives. Today, let the Holy Spirit speak to you of God’s love. Let this love fill you and saturate you, and be assured that your hope will not put you to shame.
