Our access to God’s grace, which is made possible by faith, becomes the foundation for rejoicing in the hope of God’s glory.

Reflection on “Faith to Hope”:

Many times, we’re told, as believers, to build our faith. What happens after we have built all the faith there is? I believe the next stage is to hope.

From Faith to Hope (Romans 5:1-2)

(Romans 5:1-2)

In thinking about moving from faith to hope,” let’s look at Psalm 62:1:

Truly my soul silently waits for God; From Him comes my salvation.

This reminds us to wait on God, just like the psalmist did.

The anchor verse, Romans 5:1-2, speaks about being justified by faith, finding peace with God through Jesus, and rejoicing in hope of God’s glory.

So, in our daily lives, let’s actively build on our faith foundation, finding hope in God’s promises.

Challenges will come, and when they do come, we can lean on similar words from Jeremiah 29:11:

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

This encourages us to trust that God’s plans are good, giving us a hopeful future as we continue our journey from faith to hope.

When tough times come, we can hold on to Romans 8:24-25, which says:

For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.

This encourages us to trust that what we hope for in God’s promises, even if unseen, is worth waiting for with patience. As we continue our journey from faith to hope, we can rejoice in the expectation of seeing the glory of God.
