What is hope? Where does it come from? How can believers face the future with confidencenot with blind optimism, but deep trust in Gods plans? In Hope 4 You, First Place 4 Health National Director Carole Lewis examines the theme of hope as presented in Gods Word, and illustrates what hope is and is not through the real-life experiences of Carole and a number of her friends in the faith.
Carole leads readers on an exploration of Scripture, which identifies the Holy Spirit as the Source of all hope. With this understanding, believers can walk with God (which restores hope), work with God (which renews hope) and wait on God (which revives hope). Carole underscores that hoping is never passive or inactive; it is productive, meaningful and full of purpose. Hope motivates us to take practical steps toward our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual goals.
