Hope Beyond Hope!

To hope is a good thing.
Having hope is a sign that it's not over until it's over.
When an individuals hope is still intact it's a sign that that individuals challenges have not had the final word.
I'm a student of the Bible. I read it and respect it as God's Holy Word. Abraham was a character who 'hoped against hope'
There are times our hope is not enough.  There are those who have hoped, and died hoping. For dreams to manifest we have to do more than merely hope.
They say 'desperate situations deman desperate measures'. Abraham is an example of someone who was in a situation that was critical. It looked as if the odds were stacked against his dream. Merely hoping would not and could not deliver his dream to him. He needed a miracle. He had to go deeper!
Thank God he did. Abraham hoped against hope by trusting in God. To hope against hope is to hope beyond hope. It's a supernatural kind of hope that makes not ashamed. It's the kind of hope God has called us to. It's the kind of hope that manifests dreams and helps make people endure to the end. It's the kind of hope that comes from God, and we should have.
To hope against hope is to still be expectant against all odds that God will come through for you.
To hope against hope is to understand that God is seldom early, but He is never late.
