Is your hope in the economy? Is your hope in your job or finances?
Is your hope in the government? Is your hope in someone you know and love? Is your hope in temporal things on this earth?
Why not “hope” in the character of God! God will be just as wise as He was last year. God will be just as good to you as He was last year. God will be just as faithful, loving, kind, just, holy, and righteous as He was last year. So place your hope in Him because He never changes.
That hope is different from the world’s idea of hope which really means a “hope for” or “hopeful.” Our hope in Christ is a sure thing. It’s a done deal because of the character of God.
-Mark (hoping in Christ not mankind)
