Trust/Hope In God
by Kathleen Whitten
There was a time when a man’s word was his bond and a handshake meant a promise kept. People of high integrity still keep their word, but sadly today, many people do not.
More than ever we have grown accustomed to broken promises, bad contracts, lies under oath, bounced checks, zero follow-through, deceptive advertising, fraudulous claims, and lack of integrity. Who can we trust? We might even begin to cynically question if we can trust God.
Knowing this, God responds to our fears with a solid answer. In Numbers 23:19 He says, “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should change His mind. Does He speak and then not act? Does He promise and not fulfill?” In other words, You may not always be able to trust humans, but you can always trust God.
But in Psalm 25:3, God promises that when we hope in Him, we will never be ashamed or disappointed. Therefore our hope (expectation and trust ) is a precious gift which only God deserves.
To whom or to what have you given your hope today?
Only God always keeps His Word. Only God consistently fulfills His promises. Only God
“...For you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.” (Psalm 25:5b)
