And now, O Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in you. (Psalms 39:7
Hope mixed with fear. What else can you say about the future? A lot if we open our Bibles. Hopes appears in the Bible 149 times. I have good news for you concerning that mixture of hope and fear that we all feel with regard to the future: Hope wins. Hope wins. Carve it in granite, etch it in stone. Hope wins. Because God wins. Nothing in this world is surer. When your children ask about the future, teach them to sing those words that have inspired millions, "This is my Father's world, Oh, let me n'er forget that though the wrong is oft so strong, God is the ruler yet."
Dear God, protect me from fear, as I put my hope in you. In Jesus' name, Amen.
