It doesn’t have to be that way for followers of Christ. We can hold unswervingly to the hope we profess for the God who promise is faithful (Hebrew 10:23). Hope is not a luck neither it is a fleeting feeling, it is a confidence knowing that God will do what He said.
David has every reason to lose hope with God. After he received the promise of being Israel’s next king, he spent seven years in waiting; hiding in caves and fleeing from King Saul who tried to hunt for David’s life. His friends were killed and his family were taken captive yet amidst all that, David was able to say, “My hope is in You (Psalm 39:7).
What a supernatural life David led just because his confidence was in His Sovereign God. It kept him focused, it kept his mind above all circumstance and it kept him going. No human strength could summon such perseverance, courage and boldness, only the Spirit of God is able to turn our natural ability to a supernatural one. Is there hope in you?
My God promises to supply all your needs and wants. Will you hope in His words?
Psalm 39: 7 NLT
And now, Lord what do I wait for? My hope is in You
