Renewable resource– it’s a term we hear often now that our environment struggles to keep up with all that’s being consumed around the world. It is typically a source of power and is sustainable in its application. A renewable resource is a resource which can replenish with the passage of time. “Renewable resources are any type of resource that can be regenerated at a rate that is at least equal to the speed with which humanity can consume that resource” (Source: Wisegeek.com).
Hope is a renewable resource for your soul. Are you a consumer of hope? It is renewable, sustainable (because of Jesus), and filled with power. No matter how quickly you consume it, there is always a fresh supply to tap into. It will never run out! Everyday, we have the opportunity to live with an even greater hope-filled focus in life because of the unending supply of hope given to us in the promises of God.
What is hope?
It is the confident expectation of good. You can have confidence that good things are coming your way when you trust in God’s promises as your personal truth.
The Bible tells us that hope is eternal, it is unending and unfailing. Its power is always readily available to be tapped into and harnessed.
“Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.” ~ 1 Corinthians 13:13 NLT
“And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.” ~Romans 5:5 NLT
How can we get hope, increase it, or renew it?
We get hope by using the Word of God as our supplier of it. God’s Word is Truth. The Truth is given to us so that we may overflow with hope!
“Your promises are my only source of hope.” Psalm 119:114 TLB
“And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled.” ~ Romans 15:4 NLT
Even in the midst of infertility and other struggles in life, it is possible, no, imperative to have hope. Without it, how can you look forward to a future filled with joy, peace, and the gifts of favor that God desires to give you?
