Our Hope and Faith Are in God

April 4, 2022

1 Peter 1:21 (KJV)

21 "Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God."

Notes taken from "Life Is In the Blood" by Larry Ollison.

"We may not understand why certain things happen because our minds are not as big as the mind of God. We have limited thinking. God knew He was going to send Jesus to shed His blood on the cross and redeem man. He knew that, even before man sinned, but He didn’t cause man to sin.

"There is a big difference between looking down through the corridors of time and knowing something and being the cause of it. So this is not meant to be interpreted as though God predestined man to sin. God, in His omniscience, saw ahead and as it states in verse 20, 'He [Jesus] indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you.'

"Jesus was foreordained to shed His blood, and now Peter says, it has been made manifest. That means what was foreordained has happened as God said it would. We have been redeemed from sin.

"First Peter 1: 21 says, 'Who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory…' Why was Jesus given glory? Verse 21 continues to say' … so that your faith and hope are in God.' Because of the glory He received, we can have our faith and hope in God. Our hope and faith is our belief of what is coming and what we already have. They allow us to have a firm foundation of belief because of what Jesus did.”

Thank You, Father, for all that You’ve done for us. In Jesus's name, Amen.

Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come!
