Hope Delayed

The Book of Proverbs is full of wisdom when it comes to whom we should put our trust. There is one in particular that we should take a look at. Hope delayed (deferred) makes the heart sick, but hope fulfilled is a tree of life. - Proverbs 13:12

What happens when we put our hope in something?

There is excitement, and plans on it becoming a reality. We dream about it, and become impatient when it doesn’t happen in our time frame.

What happens when what we hope in doesn’t become a reality?

There’s a sense of disappointment, and we lose our Focus. Some may stop trusting and give up on Hope.

What happens when what we hope in is fulfilled?
Joyful
Invigorated
Trusting
Fulfillment

How is Christ the fulfillment of what we hope for?

Hope is deferred but promises and assurances are given. We experience redemption, salvation, eternal hope, and joy. For eternity we will enjoy His presence and peace

Amen?
