He Makes Our Hope Grow
The Spirit Of The Lord
12. He Makes Our Hope grow
May God, the source of hope, fill you with all joy and peace by means of your faith in him, so that your hope will continue to grow by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
The Holy Spirit is the only one that can renew our minds and make us grow our hope. God is the only source of hope and it is only by the power of the Holy Spirit that our hope can grow. He is also the power that enables our faith and love to grow.
A lot of people unfortunately rely on themselves for their hope, faith and love to grow but that is pride. Faith, hope and love come through God’s grace and God gives grace to the humble but resists the proud. The proud are people who lack self awareness as a result of spiritual blindness. They have been deceived and programmed to rely on themselves and ignore God and His grace.
We get no credit for having faith, hope and love because they are given and sustained by the power of the Holy Spirit.
If you want to be filled with hope, you must meditate on the scriptures, pray and depend on God who is the source of hope to help you and fill you. He must takeover and we must reduce. When the Holy Spirit controls our minds, we will be empowered to think His thoughts and have the mind of Christ.
May the God of hope enable our hope grow to maturity and also transform our image from glory to glory.
