Grace morning on this sufficient and satisfying Saturday.
The times we live in are so troubled, but our hope in God is surer than the sun rising in the morning.
There is nothing on this earth more certain than hope in God. He will never leave you nor will He ever forsake you. He is your anchor in the present and for the future.
If you have your hope in the right place, that is not in yourself, your job, your circumstances, but in God alone, you will never be disappointed. You will never be ashamed for placing your hope in God because He has the power to deliver you out of all your troubles.
Hope and trust in God is bigger than the present hurt you feel.
When you look to yourself, your employer, your retirement fund, or your inheritance, you can not fully hope with 100% certainty. You can know for certain, that even your employer’s decisions are in God’s sovereign hands according to Proverbs 21:1
The many “what if’s” haunt your mind and do not allow you to sleep as you rehearse the day’s events and worry about what happens tomorrow if….
But worrying about tomorrow is borrowing trouble from tomorrow and spending it on today.
“We put our hope in the Lord. He is our help and our shield. Our heart rejoices in God because we trust his holy name. Lord, let your faithful love surround us because we wait for you.”
Psalms 33:20-22 CEB
When you realize that tomorrow is already taken care of by God alone and the hope you have in Him, then you can find rest. It is easier to sleep tonight if you know tomorrow is in God’s hands.
Live, love, and laugh your way through this splendid Saturday!
