“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, the Holy One, to receive the glory, the honor, and the power, for you created all things, and because of your desire they existed, and were created!” Revelation 4:11 WEB
The young man met a beautiful young girl. He had been raised a Christian and believed in the Almighty God. He believed that God had the power and authority to do things, amazing things that would astonish and bewilder us completely. But, when he spoke to his new love about it, she would not have it. She had been taught by a different set of textbooks than the Bible. She could only let herself hope in what she could see with her own eyes or knew her world to be from the scientist´s point of view. He held a beautiful picture of a caring Father above who was looking after us all and had carefully designed a habitat for us here. He gratefully clung to this hope that Christ would save us and desperately wanted to give her hope too. Have we ever wanted to share hope in God to someone we love?
Those who can find in their hearts a growing hope in the presence and power of a loving Father also find strength to face the problems of our days. Our world often looks dark and menacing, but those who set their hope in God, know that He has a plan to save us. We are comforted by knowing that He is near and that He cares. We are held, sheltered, and guided by a loving Savior. No matter how painful our situation is, our God is still in control, and He will restore us. His plans for us are infinitely better for us than we can imagine. Would we like to set our hope in Him today too?
Even though our world would try to keep us from it, let us look to You in Hope as our Almighty loving Father, we pray!
