And you will feel secure, because there is hope; you will look around and take your rest in security. - Job 11:18
Life is not fair. Sometimes there are good days and sometimes there are bad days. They come in all degrees, and somehow we get through them. When something happens that is beyond our comprehension, it is easy to get discouraged and filled with despair. This is where God can help us.
Since He is the Beginning and the End, He knows what is happening today and also in the future. How gracious He is to always extend hope and love to us.
Let's focus on hope which is defined as: To trust in, wait for, look for, or desire something or someone; or to expect something beneficial in the future.
Hope and trust go hand in hand. As believers, we can put our hope in the Lord because He knows our future and will be able to take us through all difficulties that we face in this life. Just realizing that one fact can release all fear and anxiety.
Today, let's hope like we did as children.
Through the dark and stormy night Faith beholds a feeble light Up the blackness streaking; Knowing God's own time is best, In a patient hope I rest For the full day-breaking! - John Greenleaf Whittier
