When we put our hope in people, places, things, in our circumstances and in outcomes, in anything or anyone of this world including ourselves, we will always risk ending up disappointed, let down, discouraged, depressed, down, downhearted, etc. Even if we are filled with hope and satisfaction and happiness etc. starting out, we still risk being disappointed down the road. Why? Nothing and nobody in this life is perfect, and the world and our circumstances are ever changing. But I have good news for you!
When we put our trust and hope in and confidence in and dependence on and expectation in the Lord Jesus Christ and believe in Him and in His death and resurrection and live our lives for Him in obedience to Him, we have a hope that never diminishes, never fails, never disappoints, and that goes on forever.
The hope of JESUS, of a forever relationship with God, of knowing God is with us here on this earth and will give us all we need to get through this life beginning with His amazing love, and the hope of heaven forever with God where all will be perfect and glorious forevermore! Hallelujah!
No matter the trials and the ups and downs of our lives on this earth, in Jesus and in a deeply personal intimate relationship with Him we can have perfect unfailing hope. The hope of Christ!
Put your hope in Jesus! Believe in Him, turn to Him, follow Him, live for Him, experience Him, enjoy Him, and place and keep your hope in Him, hallelujah, AMEN!
