Hope In The Lord


“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.” Jeremiah 17:7
“The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes.”  Proverbs 21:1

This morning there are those who are happy with the election results in their state and there are those who are sad. What I would say to you is these two verses I’ve listed above are still true in either case. If you trust in man you’ll be very disappointed, but trusting in the Lord regardless of what you see is the best place to be.

If you keep your eyes on Jesus and spend time with Him, you just can’t go wrong. We’ve seen it over and over and over again, people get so focused on what’s going on in the world that they loose sight of who is in control of everything. Everything! If He can direct and move a river, he can direct and move a mere man.

This is the season when harvest takes place, crops are brought in before the first snow fall. Vegetables and fruits are canned and stored for the long winter. Be thankful and bless His name for the abundance He’s given. Put your hope and trust in the God who is still in control. For those who do will never be disappointed.

Father, we trust you with our future. You always have our best interests in mind. Regardless of the outcome, we place our hope in the most stable and secure place; YOU. We thank You for our peace that passes understanding and guards our hearts and minds. We will focus on YOUR business and trust You with the plans YOU have for us. It’s in Jesus’ name and for Your glory, Amen.
