THE POWER OF HOPE.
The are 3 stages
Most people are in a state of hopelessness.
Reason’s because they base their trust on what they can see alone.
When you take actions from a point of hopelessness, you’ll make terrible decisions because, it’s usually done out of desperation.
From a point of hopelessness, you can’t see anything positive, only negativity.
Hope, is an invisible shift from hopelessness, believing that something will soon happen. However, he/she is not as confident as the person who has faith.
When you’re at a point of hope, you are at a good spot where God can actually help you.
Hope is needed for effective changes in our life.
The unseen controls the seen. It is usually not based on something tangible but the intangible.
Hebrews 11:1 (NLT)
The difference between Faith and Hope is the level of confidence.
Hope is not Faith, but you can move from Hope, to Faith.
The difference between Faith and actually having it, is time!
The person in faith looks so confident, that you can’t tell the difference between him/her, and the person who actually has it.
Romans 4:17 – 2
Faith is being sure.
Abraham had a transition from hopelessness to actually receiving.
One of the ways of moving from hopelessness, to receiving, is by prayer.
The Spiritual controls the Physical and the Intangible controls the Tangible.
You can talk Faith to the person in hope, not to the person in hopelessness.
Hope is thinking something good might happen; while Faith, is being sure that something good will happen.
