Thought for Today
Hope and Security
“And thou shalt be secure,
because there is hope”
Hope is the anchor and the security of our life in God. It is the assurance of God at work in the human heart. It takes no confidence in the things seen for it is the temperament of a heart who is dependent upon God Himself. It is a strength when all outward help disappoints. It is a refuge from the storms of life. It holds us fast within the embrace of our Father’s love, it steadies us in the shifting sands of life and it keeps us moving forward in the path of faith. Hope brings to the faithful heart the great promise of God…
“Hope maketh not ashamed”

“If it were not for hopes, the heart would break”
– Thomas Fuller
Jesus is the hope of every life. He is the stronghold of all who put their trust in Him. Hope gives strength in the night, it is the anchor in every storm and it is the pillar that hold’s His own in every night season.
A living hope beats with the evidentiary expression of Faith. A living hope is always ratified by a living faith. It is faith which assures hope of its validity.
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for…”
Faith and Hope are the kindred graces which inevitably brings the soul into the very Love of God.
“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three;
but the greatest of these is love”
1 Corinthians 13:13
