Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is the LORD.
Hope is confidence in God’s love. Hope is the expectation of a future with God. Hope is the optimism you have in knowing that no matter what may come God will get you through it. Hope is the anticipation of drawing closer to God. Hope is the assurance you have in knowing that with God all things are possible. Hope is a blessing from God.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Faith is believing in and completely trusting in the one true God, His Word and His promises. It is the foundation and firm belief in the power, faithfulness and love of God. Faith is what helps us get through life knowing that by accepting Jesus Christ as our Savior and by the power of the resurrection someday we will be in heaven with God for all eternity.
Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.
Throughout the Bible there are stories of people who were in really bad situations but they made it through because they trusted in the Lord. God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is still the helper to those who put their faith, hope and trust in Him.
The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.
Life can sometimes be hard and at times may even seem unfair. You will go through tough times but don’t give up hope. Keep your mind on the things above. Keep praying. Keep your focus on God and He will get you through the troubles that come your way.
I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
We can be assured that God honors and fulfills His promises. We can rely on God’s faithfulness which has been founded in heaven. Our hope and confidence in Him lies in His faithfulness because His Word is true and trustworthy forever and ever.
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
If our hope is anchored in Jesus, when we go through storms we can be confident that we will remain connected, safe and secure. Whatever storm we face we can trust that Jesus will never leave us and our hope is never misplaced.
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
As God’s children we need to hold on to the hope of God’s promises knowing that He is faithful. God never changes His mind, He never forgets and His Word is true. Even when it feels like He may have forgotten us, have faith and remember His timing is never late.
