Psalm 39:7- “But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you.”

Definition of HOPE: to expect with confidence

The entire chapter of Psalm 39 reveals to us the power of hope. Hope helps us to know what to do when our world seems to be a whirlwind around us. When there is so much going on and we feel like we are on our own, this is when it’s very important to continue hoping in the Lord. He will renew and refresh us daily! His Word says that we should not worry. We can be confident in Him! He takes care of the single sparrow, and all the lilies in the valley. If he cares for them, we can rest knowing that He cares for us all the more as His children. Put your hope in something that will never fail! Hebrews 6:19 says “We have this hope as an anchor for our soul, firm and secure.” This scripture speaks of the hope of God’s blessings and encouragement, originally promised to Abraham. We can rely on God and rest in Him no matter what stage of life we are going through. His hope will keep us secure and at rest.
