Hope for Today
Defeat does not come to those who trust in you…
Psalms 25, 3
This is God’s firm promise to us: When we trust in Him, we shall not be put to shame! It may be that the matter ends differently than we wanted, but it always ends as God wants it.
Trust in the Lord and be strong! Have fixed courage and hope in the Lord! – It is said a few verses later in Psalm 27, 14.
God himself gives us courage to trust Him, to put all our hope in Him. We don’t need to wait until everything else disappoints us and fails, and then trust. God wants to be our helper in every trifle during the day and, of course, in every great thing. He likes to be very close to us and to be part of our daily life. That’s why it’s so good to look for His grace in the morning and begin the day with Him. How much easier are the days when we have a strong helper and friend! How much joy is lost when we go through our struggle for survival all alone! – No, we want to live with Him and entrust Him this day and our lives. We want to live “footed” and unencumbered of worry! We want His joy and His power!
Thank You, Heavenly Father, today You’re close to me and help me in all the small and big things. How good that You have the overview! How good that You are my helper! How good that You know my troubles and relieve me from all of them! How good that You are with me!
