In Whom Does Your Hope Reside?

In order to make this discussion easier to understand, we should probably figure out what the word hope means. A basic meaning for the word hope is “a feeling of expectation or the desire for something good to happen in the future.” Hope is such an important thing for believers and nonbelievers to have because it serves as a means of encouragement and helps you hold on when it feels as if you don’t want to, or can’t. Hope allows us to push through situations and endure certain hardships. Hope also motivates us to try harder. Okay, so now that we have established what hope is and what it does, the real question is: “In whom or where do you find your hope?” An unbeliever or someone in the world would say that they place their hope in materialistic things. For example, we often place our hope in man, specifically in our friends because we know that we can trust them, and that's not necessarily a bad thing until they are the ones you confide in first. The problem is that man is not perfect. The Bible in Psalms 56:11 says “in God I trust and am not afraid. What can man do for me?” We will fail our friends at least once, and they will fail you, and it may be at the point when they needed us the most, or when you needed them the most. As children of God who believe in Him and His power, we should put our hope in God. Putting your hope in God is trusting that He will come through for you and deliver you from whatever it is you are going through. Psalms 62:5 says that “Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from Him.” It confirms your confidence in Him. Isaiah 40:31 also says that “but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” If we put our hope in God, He will never fail us because He cannot disappoint us; it is not in His nature to do so. We can feel at peace knowing that we are secured. Hope in man is convenient and easy, but hope in God is unbreakable and definite.
