Dream vs Hope

by Pastor Solly Bendrau

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Romans 15:13

Why would you want to dream when you can have Godly assured hope?

What we dream of is really what we hope for, and what we hope for falls so short of the glory God has in place for us. Let go of your dreams and take hold of the hope God has for you and your life.

Here Paul reminds us that God is a God of hope fulfilled and that His wish for us is that God fills us with all joy and peace. Joy relates to the delight of anticipation in seeing one’s hopes fulfilled and peace results from the assurance that God will fulfil those hopes in us as we trust in Him.


Father God, help me daily to seek Your hope for me and my life so that I may bring You honour and glory as I follow Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
