Let’s Talk About Hope

Find Rest My Soul, 

Put Your Hope in God 

Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24 
The Lord delights in those who fear Him, who put their hope in His unfailing love. Psalm147:11 

Dictionary.com defines hope (verb with a subject) 1) To look forward to with desire and confidence; 2) to believe, desire, or trust. I put my trust and confidence in God’s unfailing love. For I am saved by hope but I do not hope in that which I can see. For one does not hope in what one sees. I place my trust, confidence, and desire in the God who created me, raised Jesus from the dead and is the creator of all things. He keeps His promises.

I like how Lamentations 3:24-26 reads;

24 I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for Him.”

 

25 The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him,
to the one who seeks Him;
26 it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord.
 
Without hope one is prone to despair and hopelessness. This is not a healthy option. Jesus brings hope to those in despair and without hope. I desire to be Jesus’ messenger of hope. Putting one’s hope in man is a risky business because more times than not it will let you down. God is worthy of one’s hope for He sent His son into the world to bring us hope. 
 

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy, He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. 1 Peter 1:3-5

 May you also put your hope in God and find rest for your soul.
My Prayer: Dear Father in heaven, thank You for giving me a reason to put my hope in You. Help me to be Your messenger of hope. Amen.
