Isaiah 40:30-31: 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Psalm 25:2-3-6: 2 In you I trust, O my God. Do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me. 3 No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame, but they will be put to shame who are treacherous without excuse.4 Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; 5 guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. 6 Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old.

Psalm 62:5: 5 Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.

Romans 5:5: 5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.

Romans 8:24: 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has?

To have “hope” we as followers of Christ Jesus must invest time into finding out what and who the only true “hope” is.

Jesus is the only “hope” for this “hope-less” world and His “hope” is available for all who desire it.

The situation that you face today is not hopeless…that is the enemy lying to you…so stop listening to what He is saying about it and listen for what God has to say about your situation in His word by the leading of His Holy Spirit.

He will never force it…His “hope” on you, but if you seek it of Him you will most assuredly find it because He promises as much in His word and He unlike man can never tell a lie so you can take His promise of “hope” to the bank.

He hopes that you will seek Him for any and all needs that you have for He loves you with an unquenchable and eternal love.

He smiles every time He thinks about you (every second of the day) and even at the very mention of your name!

He values you more than mere men value precious metals or jewels and you are a delight that He looks forward to delighting in every day!

Be blessed and may you have a Jesus-filled day!
