Where is Your Hope?

“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”  Romans 15:12 KJV

Allow me to start off by wishing all of you a most MERRY CHRISTMAS!  My prayer that you will continue to celebrate our Savior even past December 25th.  As I write this week, I am deeply disturbed by all the negative rhetoric being tossed about, since the presidential election ended.  I wrote recently about widespread panic and fear. Now, the subject of hope for the future is being questioned.  So, I am prompted to challenge all who read our blog to seriously examine the source of your hope.  I ask, very emphatically, where is your hope???  Is it in man, or in you?  Is it in your earthly possessions, your job or your status in this world?  I could go on, but you get the picture.

Let me say for the record, my hope, my faith and my future is securely rooted in the Lord!  I have no other option, but to trust Him totally with ALL of me.  For it was God who brought me this far and as the song goes, “He brought me too far to leave me.”  Nothing that man does; nothing that is said can change this for me.  However, my concern is the rest of the body of Christ.  I am watching many believers and their leaders, who are suggesting that all is lost with the election of Donald Trump.  There are pastors and church leaders even suggesting that we are going back into a time of slavery and losing all that we have accomplished as a nation.  Are you serious?  The last time I checked, God was still on the throne and Christ still had all power in His hands.  If that doesn’t change, the source of my hope will not change.

The Apostle Paul in his letter to the Romans described our Heavenly Father as the “God of hope” or the One who gives hope.  He was saying that God is the only being we could have total confidence in.  He is not capable of failure or falling short.   What He has promised, He is fully capable of accomplishing.  This is the only one worthy of our hope and trust.  And not only is He trustworthy, but He also gives us an abundance of hope.  To top this all off, God provides us with joy and peace as well.  So, not only  

At this precious time of the year, we should be focusing on the hope that Jesus brought to us as that babe in the manger.  It does not matter what man does.  What God did at Bethlehem will always be greater.  Now with that amazing act of giving us all a Savior, how could anyone believe that we are without hope.  Our hope must never be founded in any human being.  It must always stand in the mighty power of God.
