Hope in the Lord
The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
When the Lord is our portion; all our hope is in Him. We trust not in the things of this world, we do not depend on the people we know nor do we lean on our own understanding, but we do hope in our Lord and Savior. We hope in Him, for our faith is to be found soundly within Him. We know without any hindrance or doubt that we can depend on God for all our needs.
Often times we are faced with situations where we feel like we have failed God, we then beat ourselves up for the mere fact that we know we have placed our hope in others things other than God. we know that we should know better, so we are often hard on our own selves. This would be a prime example of us leaning on our own understanding, but we must remember the sacrifice that Christ has made for us who believe; remembering that He has already paid the cost for us. This is not to say to take God’s grace for granted, but know that we don’t even have the power to condemn our own selves, only God does.
Hope for strength…and believe…Hope for deliverance…and believe…Hope for victory and believe; and in Him it shall be.
So today, no matter what you may be facing remember who we have placed our hope in. Remember that his love still abides with us…remember the Lord is our portion and continue to place all hope in Him. My prayers for today, Father grant us the wisdom to lean not on our own understanding, so that our hope shall remain in you and you alone, in Jesus name I pray, amen.
