As I have struggled over the last several days, mainly with personal issues, I also struggled with where to go this year with this devotion site. So many places, so many ways. What I realized today was that I didn’t have the answer because I hadn’t asked God the question. I was trying to figure out what I was supposed to do. Will I ever learn that it does not work that way? Do you have this same problem?
After I took the time to ask the question, my eyes fell on a book which gave me the answer, one day at a time in prayer. Sometimes the topics will be big, like Hope, while others will probably be quite small. All, I pray, will be blessed by God.
What is hope? Hope, when used as a noun, is the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best. When used as a verb it is to believe, desire, or trust. (Definitions taken from www.dictionary.com).
Christ gives us hope. Hope of eternity shared with Him
God gives us hope of His ever-presence.
The Spirit guides us to live a life to assure us our eternal place.
What a blessing it is to know that our triune God grants us the promise and assurance of Hope and the knowledge that He has always been, is always present, and always be with us.
