Hope is a Choice

Wednesday, August 14, 2013 Bryan Hudson 2 Comments

Colossians 1:27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

J.B. Phillips translation says: “...Christ in you, the hope of all glorious things to come.” This reveals that every hope that God has put in your heart will have a glorious manifestation. Nothing in God is mediocre or insignificant.

The key to realizing the “hope of glory” is to know that Jesus lives on the inside of us and desires to express Himself in fulfillment of every hope.

Hope is not based on circumstances, but our interpretation of the outcome of circumstances. Like the 12 spies in Numbers 13: Either you interpret the "giants" are stronger than you, or you interpret that you are "well able" with God's help to overcome giant-type obstacles.

Hope is a choice. Choose well.


  1. This is an old communication, but some how I missed it until today. I was looking for ..? I don't know what and then I stumbled across this blog "Hope is a Choice". I read it and at the end you said "choose well". Something welled up in me to --hope again for lost things. To hope again for those dreams that I was about to let go of. Thanks
