Faith or Hope...Which Are You?

Here’s the question: Do you have projects, dreams, goals, relationships you’re trying to succeed at; some issues in life that are really important to you? Hang with me for a minute and think about this.

What are you relying on to reach your goal?

Check this out: “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” 1 Corinthians 13:13 King James Bible

Newer Bibles quote the verse as “faith, hope, and love,” but for now…let’s focus on Faith and Hope.

Do you have Faith you’ll reach your goal, or are you relying on Hope?

Increasingly, here’s what I’m thinking: Faith does not have a time limit, while Hope does. 

If you Hope something succeeds, that’s a wish. You wish things will work out…and we all know how realistic wishes are. And, you probably have a time limit on it. You may not realize it, but at a certain point you may give up Hope.

Faith is very…very…different. There is no time limit on Faith. If you have Faith the situation will work you KNOW in your heart of hearts it will happen…it’s just a matter of when. And, by having Faith you are willing to deal with the difficulties you encounter, suffer through the difficult times because, again, it’s just a matter of time before your dream is a reality. 

Most of the belief systems followed throughout the history of mankind say what I just said in one way or another. Faith, the deep belief that the situation will work out, attracts the thing you want.

Hope, on the other hand, comes with doubt. You Hope it will work, but hey, it might not. And, you’re only going to give it just so much time before you’re thinking, “Nope, this isn’t going to happen.’

Again, belief systems show that the doubt you feel attracts what you fear.

Soooo….whatever you are seeing as your future, do you have Faith…or, are you Hoping?

If you are Hoping it will all work out you better Hope the Charity thing works…’cause you are already starting the race at a disadvantage.
