FAITH, TRUST AND HOPE
There are so many times people let us down. They will assure us they are going to be there for us or they will handle something for us or even tell us they love us, but the let us down. It may not be no fault of their own but after a while we begin to lose faith in them. Our hope in them doing what they say they will do diminishes as well. One thing about our relationship with God, however, is that we can always have faith and hope in Him. We can always be assured He will follow through. We can trust Him to do exactly what He says He will do.
Hebrews 11:1 “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, we know we can always put our faith in You. We know we can always trust in You. We know we can always have hope for the future. We don’t know what tomorrow, next week or next year will bring; however, we do know that You will always be with us and our faith in You should always be strong. Others will let us down. But You never will. Thank You Lord that we can put our faith, trust and hope in You and that we can have peace knowing You will always be with us. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
