“And so, Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you.”
Psalms 39:7 (NLT)
Hope is only as good as the person you hope in. Blind hope is not hope; it is credulity, the state of willingness to believe in one or many people or things in the absence of reasonable proof or knowledge. We don’t just hope for hope’s sake. Our hope is not in a religion. It is not is a creed or tradition. No, we believe in the one and true God, the God who is there. A moral and loving God. The God of eternity who has a much broader perspective on life than we could ever imagine. We come to our loving God and put our faith in Him; so when we need hope, we simply have to draw from our Spiritual experience and put our trust in Him. Today, join the Psalmist in his answer to the question, “Where do I put my hope?” Answer God by saying, “My hope is in you!”
Father, forgive me when I doubt You. My worry is testament to my lack of faith or trust I should have in You. Today, dear Lord, I come again and renew my hope in You. I reaffirm my faith and put my trust in Your love and almighty power. My hope is in You, my Lord and my God.
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION & MEDITATION
My hope is in the living God
Ask yourself, “What are the things that I am worried about?” Bring them to mind and reflect on them for a moment. Name them and as you do, Ask yourself, “Is God greater?” As you ask yourself that question, allow yourself to see God as much greater than your worry. Sense His love for you. As you consider His wisdom, power and might, ask yourself, “Where will I put my hope?” Answer by saying, “My hope is in the living God.”
