Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance. Psalm 42:5 (NKJV)
Hope brings an anticipation of blessing. To know hope, you must endure times of hopelessness. Hope represents an end to desperate longing—a need that begs to be satisfied and in the end is fulfilled. When hope burns within your heart, it cries out to be heard.
The psalmist wrote,
As the deer pants for the water brooks,
So my soul pants for Thee, O God . . .
My tears have been my food day and night,
While they say to me all day long,
“Where is your God?” Psalm 42:1-3 (NASB)
What is your hope, your dream, the cry of your heart? Take a moment and go to Jesus with your deepest, most earnest pleas.
Realize that whatever is important to you is even more important to the Lord. Let Him be your Source of hope today.
