Lasting Hope

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.
Psalm 62:5

Our world today desperately hungers for hope. Some are ready to just give up. There is despair and hopelessness on every hand. Jesus Christ wants to give us hope for the future. You may be in what you feel is a hopeless situation today.

Because of what Jesus did for us through His death on the cross and His resurrection, we know we have hope for the future. Even though you may feel that you are beyond hope, you can stand on the promise of God found in Luke 1:37 and Matthew 19:26, For nothing is impossible with God.

Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection opened the door to heaven for us. In addition to eternal life, we have His peace, His joy, His comfort, His presence. That’s why it is possible for us to have lasting hope. Christ wants to give all of us hope for the future. He wants us to walk with Him every day.

Hope in the Christian’s life is confident expectation. Not only do we have lasting hope, but we also have a living hope. Even in the midst of a changing world, Jesus’ love and security are unchanging. I find the words in 1 Peter 1:3 very encouraging, Praise to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

You may be going through a trying time right now. Trials are a part of life and none of us is immune to them. We should not make the mistake of thinking we can handle every situation that comes our way. Just remember, trust in God, and in His timing you will be blessed. Christians have the assurance that things will be better.

If you aren’t certain that you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ today, I pray that you will ask Him into your life right now. If you have questions, contact this website for assistance.
