For we were saved in hope, but hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for that which he sees? But if we hope for that which we don’t see, we wait for it with patience.
When Jesus met Peter for the first time, He knew Peter was a person to climb the mountaintop and then swiftly to drop into the valley. But instead of looking at Peter this way, He kept His hope alive by focusing on the Peter’s future life.
After Peter denied Jesus three times, he looked at Jesus’ face and saw Jesus’ forgiveness. Then, Peter remembered that Jesus prayed for Peter not to fall.
Later on, Peter became the head disciple and a pillar of the early Church. As Jesus’ hoped, Peter was faithful until he died on the cross upside down.
You do not know your future, but if you rely on Jesus as Peter did, Jesus will keep your hope alive.
Father, help me to have a strong hope that You will lead me to reach the potential You have planned for me. Help me hope for the brightest future in Jesus and to be faithful until last day of my life as Peter was. I pray in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
