Have a Supernatural Expectancy
“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.” –Romans 8:24-25, NKJV
Most believers don’t pay much attention to hope. They don’t think of it as very important. They certainly don’t consider it to be as important as faith. But the fact is, faith won’t function without hope.
You may think you have hope for your situation, but is it natural hope or Bible hope? Real Bible hope involves supernatural expectancy. The kind of hope the Word of God talks about is much stronger than natural hope because it’s not based on wishing or wanting. It is based on your covenant with God and the anointing God has provided to carry out that covenant in your life.
Just knowing God’s promises, however, isn’t enough. Hope comes when you begin to see yourself with what God has promised you, instead of seeing yourself without it. Real hope stands firm. It doesn’t move, and it isn’t distracted by natural circumstances. It is an expectancy that keeps your faith alive until those things you are believing for are pulled from the spiritual realm into the natural.
