Where is hope?

When your heart is breaking, you can place your hope and trust in the Lord. Though it seems impossible to do and hope seems intangible, there is Someone we can lean on.

“Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD” (Psalm 31:24).

Anne Graham Lotz defines hope: “Biblical hope is absolute confidence in something you haven’t seen or received yet, but you’re absolutely confident that whatever God has said is going to come to pass.”

She also declares that “Jesus is your hope for the future. One day Jesus Christ will come back, and He will set all of the wrong right. Good will triumph over the bad. Love will triumph over hate. Righteousness will triumph over evil. He’s going to make it all right, and you can have absolute confidence that that’s going to take place. That’s your hope.”

Sovereign God, I choose hope. I choose faith. I choose life. Give me an unshakable faith in You. Amen.

  1. Jesus is our ONLY hope.. When we try to place our hope in others and things, they fail us greatly.. My Hope is built on nothing less but Jesus blood and righteousness.. So glad to meet you Gracie.

    • I am glad to meet you too, Kellie. We are fellow believers who have lost precious loved ones and yet claim Jesus Christ is the answer. He is coming back and I long for His return. Until then we extend our hands, feet and heart to help others know His amazing love. Blessings, Gracie.
