“Put your hope in God” can be true only if God cares. He certainly does. All the good things we without thought enjoy daily is proof enough of his care.
But then no one goes through life without difficulties. There are times of despair. It is easy to give up hope then.
But no darkness can prevent the light of God from shining. If you hope in God in your darkest hour, soon; and at the right time, you will hear his voice guiding you.
The secret to learn is what changes, and what changes not! People, situations, fame, and fortunes change. Therefore it is wise not to put your hope in them.
But God does not change. He is full of compassion and he is good. That is solid reason why you can hope in him.
Today’s difficulty shall not destroy you if you put your hope in God. In ways you have not known before, God can bring you relief in your distress.
So don’t be downcast. God will lift you up. So put your hope in God. He will not fail you.
“Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Saviour and my God.”
–Psalm 42:5, 11; 43:5 Bible.
