A friend gave me the book, “Jesus Today,” written by Sarah Young. Ms. Young’s devotion to God is deeply apparent. She wrote this book of prayers and Bible verses during “three of the most challenging years of my life.”
“Put your hope in Me, and My unfailing Love will rest upon you. Some of my children have forgotten how to hope. They have been disappointed so many times that they don’t want to risk being let down again. So they forge ahead stoically--living mechanically. Other people put their hope in problem solving, medical treatments, the stock market, the lottery, and so on. But, I challenge you to place your hope fully in Me.” (pg. 2)
We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His Holy Name. May Your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in You. Psalm 33: 20-22
Father God, You are the Answer to every situation we will ever face. You have divinely promised and divinely guaranteed hope to all believers who trust You to be Who You say You are. Thank you. Amen.
I, Paul, am God’s slave and Christ’s agent for promoting the faith among God’s chosen people, getting out the accurate word on God and how to respond rightly to it. My aim is to raise hopes by pointing to the way without end. This is the life God promised long ago--and He doesn’t break promises! Titus 1:1-2 MSG
