Hope in the Lord

“The king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. The war horse is a false hope for salvation, and by its great might it cannot rescue. Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, that he may deliver their soul from death and keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.” (‭Psalm‬ ‭33‬:‭16-22‬ ESV)

So often we put our hope and trust in the things and people of this world.

When times get difficult we trust in relationships, bank accounts, the perfect job, etc… to save us. 

Instead we should put our hope and trust in the Lord. He is the one who has the power to deliver us. He is the one who directs the worldly things as needed to save us. 

Let your heart be glad in the Lord as you trust and hope in Him.
