I was struck in my morning reading by several verses that captivated my heart. I don’t know about you but sometimes I get stuck dealing with the daily challenges of our life and can lose sight of the hope before me. Within me.
The reality is that our hope is not in what we can personally drum up or anticipate or believe with all our good natured positivism will result.
Our hope is in something deeper – Someone greater. Our hope is grounded in the very nature of God Himself.
So here were my reminders this morning. I hope they encourage you as well.
“For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 15:4-6
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
“No one whose hope is in You will ever be put to shame.” Psalm 25:3a
Steadfast in hope,
