Hope Matters

“And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation” (1 Peter 1:5a NLT).

Hope matters. In a world that often looks bleak, we need to understand that God’s best is yet to come.

We find five reasons in 1 Peter 1 why we can have hope no matter what’s going on in our lives. I’ve given you the first three of those reasons in recent devotionals.

  1. God chose us before we chose him.
  2. God always treats us with grace and mercy.
  3. God has secured our future.
  4. God’s power will protect us.

Fourth, God’s power will protect us. The Bible tells us, “And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation” (1 Peter 1:5a NLT).
