Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. (Psalm 33:20, ESV)
‘I hope it rains today.’ ‘I hope it doesn’t rain.’ ‘I hope everything goes right on my mission.’ What kind of hope is that? The kind of hope we can have in Christ is not some wishy-washy, it might happen kind of hope. The hope God intends for us is excited expectation, knowing that God will do something. Having hope in the Lord means that sometime in the future He will do exactly what He has promised. That kind of hope you can rely on. What kind of hope do you have?
Prayer: Lord, you and your promises are my hope – my assurance that you care for me.
