Psalm 27:13 I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.
Hope is something we all need. When people lose hope they have no purpose. They feel in despair and depressed. They feel as if the whole world was against them. David thought he would be this way, if he did not have the hope of seeing the goodness of God. He knew the character of God and good God is. This gave him hope.
The more we study about God’s character, the more hope we have. We realize how much He loves us. We realize that He will do anything to save and redeem us. We realize that we are His child and an heir in His kingdom. We realize that God keeps His promises. All of this should give us hope.
When you feel despair, run to God. Spend time praying and reading His word. Let God give you the hope that you need. The belief that He will take care of you. That when the storms of life hit, you are well protected by the goodness of God.
Thank you Lord, for the hope we have in you!
