The Lord in His Word not only exhorts His people to hope in the Him...
but also tells us that the Lord Himself will be the hope of His people. I found this so comforting to think on tonight. Everything else around us is so changeable, with causes for worry, fear, etc. that's so easy to get my eyes on, but our God is able to deliver us even in the midst of these things around us, and cause our hope to be in Him.
"On Christ the Solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand."
"The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: Thou maintainest my lot."
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.
Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.
"...Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise Him, Who is the health of my countenance, and my God."
