“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'” Jeremiah 29:11
What is the focus of your hope? When the focus of your hope is gone, what will happen to you?
When tragedy hits and you feel as if life is closing in on you, God sees you as a person of hope. No matter how bleak the situation, Jesus is with you through it all. HE is your ALL and ALL. When you put your hope in this world you will be disappointed. Hope in this world is only temporal.
Hope is not based on what you can muster up. It’s based on the One you have hope in: Almighty God. If your hope feels weak, remember you are a child of God and your Father is strong. When you keep your attention focused on Him, you will have hope.
“The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him.” Lamentations 3:25
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23
When you see yourself as God sees you, it can change your entire perspective on life. It’s not pride or vanity or self-righteousness. It’s the truth, supported by the Bible. Accept the gifts God has given you. Live knowing you are a child of God, mightily and wonderfully loved.
You are a blessed child of God. Live today knowing your father is the Creator and boss. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
