It's always a good day to keep hope alive. You should live everyday expecting that greater is just over the horizon. But we can't just stop at hope. Today's sermon teaches us that our hope should graduate to faith. Don't just hope for God to do something. You've got to believe that it's already on the way. You've got to live with the assurance of knowing that God keeps all of God's promises. Having that type of unwavering faith will allow you to face all of the challenges of life. No matter what your facing, let your faith remind you that you can make it.
One of the most difficult reasons its so hard to have faith, is because of all the negative things we say to ourselves. The truth is we are often our own worse enemy.
It is an inescapable truth that each we way turn and each we step we take there will always be people and individuals that will label you and place you in a category that you are not meant to be in. But the good news is despite the labels that people perpetually cast upon you and the negative names that they call you; remember that your label and what people call you is not what God says about you.
