Holding on to Hope: Hope When We Fail

December 18, 2016 ()

Bible Text: Luke 3:31, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings 1, Psalm 32:1-11, Psalm 139:1-18 |


Hope seems to fade when we fail…and the truth is we fail a lot! Failed companies, failed dreams, failed marriages, failed families, failed courses, even failed attempts to get closer to God…sure these failures can send us off into vortex of discouragement, for failures of life deflate, yet God’s hope fills to overflowing. King Dave experienced this overflowing hope even as he failed epically. How? His life reveals two choices to hold onto hope when we fail; Hope in Forgiveness (Psalm 51) and Hope in Surrender (Psalm 139).
