We all need hope.
When we think there is no hope, our spirits are down. We may give up. But, even if there is the slightest glimmer of hope, our spirits surge.
So, do you have hope?
“Yes, I have hope,” you might say. And your hope may be based on your bank account. You are fairly comfortable financially so, you have some hope. Ok, but what if your bank account is wiped out?
Or, you might say, “Yes, I have hope… I know lots of people and I think I could find someone to help me if I needed it.” Ok, that’s good too but, let’s say no human can help you? What then?
Or, you might say, “Yes, I have hope… I am a very intelligent person and I CAN figure something out.” Ok, that’s good too but, let’s say you are facing a problem beyond your intellect? What then?
The bottom line is… there are times when our money, our friends or our intelligence can’t help us. What then?
The Psalmist said, “O Lord, you alone are my hope. I’ve trusted you, O Lord, from childhood.”
Notice the Psalmist said, “O Lord… you ALONE are my hope.”
Someone has said, “when Jesus is all you have, you discover that Jesus is all you need.”
I don’t know what you are facing today. Maybe you are struggling to have hope. The outlook just doesn’t look good. Jesus Christ is the only true and lasting hope. When your money is gone, your friends can’t help you and you can’t figure anything out… Jesus is there. He alone is our hope.
