To hope is to be human. But, real hope is divine.
"Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, On those who hope for His lovingkindness, To deliver their soul from death And to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the LORD; He is our help and our shield. For our heart rejoices in Him, Because we trust in His holy name. Let Your lovingkindness, O Lord, be upon us, According as we have hoped in You." (Psalm 33.18-22)
The God of hope (Romans 15.13) ever looks after those who place their hope in Him. He "who fashions the heart of them all, He who understands all their works" (Psalm 33.15) is attentive to all who trust in Him.
Hope is as vital to life as air, food, and water. And yet, so many people live by misplaced hope; hope that is merely wishful thinking. The God of hope favors those who look to Him in faith with peace and joy.
May real hope ever be our anchor (Hebrews 6.19) during life's storms, and a constant source of peace and joy.
