You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety. Job 11: 18 NIV
It can be hard to deal with the pressures of life when trials lead us away from calm. But the Bible has advice when we’re weary. “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” Romans 12:12. We won’t have to battle burdens forever. 1 Peter 1:6-7 says, “So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while.
God anchors us in love. He fills us with courage as we learn to welcome HOPE. He helps us find peace while we’re cradled in care and reminds us we are valued and loved. He gives glimpses of good as we TRUST in His power to save and opens our eyes for Jesus.
God reminds us to hold on tight when the storms of life threaten our protection. As we cling to the promise of what’s to come, He places strength in our hearts. God guides, provides and arms us with everything we need to find refuge. In every situation, He is HERE for us.
We should offer prayers of praise, even when we struggle. God is worthy of our trust. He knows what He’s doing every moment of our lives. He WILL hear our prayers and answer when the timing is right. God WILL hold us together as we wait to be blessed.
HE will fight our battles as we put our HOPE in Him. When God has readied us to step ahead, He will show us the reward of our faithfulness. He will ALWAYS take care of us and those we love. God will see us through as we love Him forever.
Dear God, thank you for HOPE. It sets the stage for calm as we welcome the peace of Jesus and learn to be patient. Thank you for giving us strength to do what needs to be done to let go of doubt. Thank you for hearing us when we pray to be rescued. You provide everything we need as we sit in the shelter of Your love and believe in Your power to save. Thank you, Lord. You bless us in so many ways and we are grateful! Amen
