You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety. Job 11: 18 NIV
It’s hard to cope when pressure mounts and stress tries to steal our joy. But the WORD of God reminds us to be patient in prayer and put our HOPE in the One who covers us with calm.
“Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” Romans 12:12.
“Troubles are often the tools by which God fashions us for better things.” As we remain faithful, He provides HOPE for what’s to come. He opens our hearts for the Savior and humbles us with the goodness of His love.
Jesus provides a shelter of HOPE. He anchors us in STRENGTH. He reminds us who is handling EVERY single thing. When we feel as if we're hanging by a thread, He holds us even closer. He gives us the desire to bravely hold on.
Because of Christ, we DO HAVE HOPE for tomorrow. We mustn't forget how much we are loved. He will help us remain tethered to the heart of His holiness, even when we're weary and worn. He will shelter us in the comfort of His PEACE.
God will see us through! He knows our longing to be safe and calm. We can’t possibly know what tomorrow will bring, but we must remain HOPEFUL. If we truly believe in His promises, we will always find comfort if we faithfully TRUST.
So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while. 1 Peter 1:6-7
God, thank you for Your STRENGTH. It holds us together and helps us experience the calming of Jesus. We will TRUST in You and welcome what nurtures a grateful heart. Help us be patient as we learn to cope with HOPE and handle our anxious thoughts. Thank you for the power of Your love! It arms us with everything we need to keep on going. Thank you, Lord! Thank you! Amen
