Hope In God – Devotion 342

It occurs for two Psalms in a row.  There are times of great relief.  There are struggles and a search for God.  There are cries to God to help in the overwhelming weight of it all.  And there are exclamations of thanksgiving.  But the conclusion to both says so much for us all.  No matter our situation or what we may be struggling with…No matter if all is well and we are giving thanks to God…The conclusion always comes back to – hope in God. 

While all the world may feel as though it is collapsing around us – hope in God.  While there is a song in our heart and joy on our lips – hope in God.  Our hope is found only in him.  All others will fail us.  Nothing else will give us the calm assurance.  No one else can promise us the future God can.  No one else can be with us through it all – except God.  

Make it your beginning, your theme through the day, and the conclusion as you lay your head down tonight – Hope in God.

Focus Scripture:

Psalm 43:5

Why are you cast down, O my soul,
    and why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
    my help and my God.
