The bible says that “hope deferred makes the heart sick” Proverbs 13:12
There is always a SILVER LINING called HOPE.
Hope “Batah” in Hebrew means confidence, security and being without care. Confident “Biblical hope is a reality and not a feeling. Believing that God ALWAYS keeps his promises. Hope has the foundation of God’s word, in God’s character and the FINISHED work of our Lord and Saviors Jesus Christ.
As I reflect on this principle, let me share, what I call, “my little miss it, if you blink blessing.”
Our refrigerator door kept opening. To save our food from spoiling we had to move everything to our stand up freezer in my laundry room. We were considering buying another refrigerator until we found a YouTube video. It suggested cleaning the strip around the door and putting Vaseline on it would keep the door closed. Long story short, the door closed and hundreds of dollars was saved.
We could have chosen to see the inconvenience that it caused or the blessing God provided. Viewing the situation from a positive, God point of view, we could see that it was significant. An instant chain reaction of gratitude and joy.
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. Romans 8:28
