Hope

hopeIt’s so easy in life to hope in so many things.  To hope in our strength.  To hope in our might.  Our talent.  Our abilities.  Our worth.

There are so many things in life that we can place our hope in.

But, so many of these things will not last.  All of the stuff of earth will in time fail or become frail.

Our strength will grow weary.  Our might is fading.  Our talent and abilities are not perfect.

And so, what do we do?  What do we do when find our “best” is not enough. What do we do when we find that we can’t do it?  Fix it?

We turn to the place that we should actually start with. We turn to the place where our hope is actually found, where life, power, and strength are actually found.

We turn to God. We turn to Him and His strength. Listen what it says in Psalm 18:1-2 this morning.

I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

The Lord is our strength.  He is our rock, our shield, our hope.  He is the one that we can count on.

He is the one that will save us.

Today, we don’t trust in your own might or in your own ability. Trust in Him and in His.  And He will not fail you.  He will not disappoint you.  He will not leave you.  No matter what.  You can trust in Him, today.

Today, may He be our hope. And that hope will never fail.
