Hebrews 6:11-12 CEV “But we desperately want each of you to show the same effort to make your hope sure until the end. This is so you won’t be lazy but follow the example of the ones who inherit the promises through faith and patience.”
Hope is expectation of a positive outcome. This verse tells us we should never give up “expecting a positive outcome.” Always expect a positive outcome in the end (when you see your desire manifest), no matter how many failures you experience or how much time has passed. Keep on having an expectation of a positive outcome based on your faith in God’s promises. Many Christians give up and accept defeat too soon. They are like a soccer team that, just because it is not winning after the first half of the game, decides to go home and not even play the rest of the game. Do not quit so soon especially when you know you are going the right direction. How can you know you are going the right direction? By following the instructions and guidance of God’s Word, and being led by the Holy Spirit. When you are doing God’s will, keep your switch of faith on, no matter what. Continue to have expectation of a positive outcome because God is good and He is faithful!
