Have you ever heard someone say, “There is no hope….nothing is going to change.” Or,
“There is no hope – he or she isn’t going to change..”.
In most political campaigns, a candidate runs a campaign on the promise of hope. If he or she is elected, they will give us hope.
Everyone of us need hope. When we are down and discouraged, we need hope. Hope that things can get better.
It is a sad time when there is no hope.
In Psalms 27:13, the Psalmist states his hope. He says, “I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living.”
That verse is a verse of hope. He is stating that he believes things can get better.
Jeremiah 29:11 says, “I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord; plans for welfare and calamity to give us a future and a hope.”
Our hope is not based in a politician or our portfolio or our title or our checking account. It’s based in the Lord.
“We are confident that we will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”
Yes, there is hope. Things may not change tomorrow…it may take a little while but, there is hope.
