"And now abideth faith, hope, charity [or love], these three" (1 Cor. 13:13).

Wishing won't accomplish anything in the kingdom of God. But hoping will, especially when you couple it with faith and love!

Hope is one of the three most powerful elements in the universe. It is one of the three eternal and living substances that run the entire kingdom of God.

I preach a lot about faith. I'm constantly teaching believers that they can't get anything done in the kingdom of God without faith. But do you want to know something? Faith can't get anything done without hope-intense expectation!

Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for...." In natural terms you might say faith is the building material and hope is the blueprint. You have to have hope before faith can begin building anything in your life.

For instance, someone who has liver cancer might say to me, "I fully expect to be healed of this liver condition." I might say to them, "What makes you believe that, when the doctor just declared your condition incurable?"

If he has Bible hope, he'll say, "I'm going to be delivered from this liver condition because God's Word says every sickness and every disease is under the curse of the Law, and Galatians 3:13 says Jesus has redeemed us from the curse of the Law, being made a curse for us. In other words, Jesus has already redeemed me from the curse of this liver condition. That's why I fully expect to be delivered from it."

When you have that kind of clear, Word-based image inside you, you have real Bible hope-and it's an absolute must for anyone who wants to live by faith.

So put hope to work in your life today...and couple it with faith and love. Then you will have the three most powerful elements in the universe working for you!

Speak the Word: I hope and expect in the mercy and love of God and He takes pleasure in me. (Ps. 147:11)
