Someting Great to Put Your Hope In!

"I give you thanks, O Lord, with all my heart;
I will sing your praises before the gods.
I bow before your holy Temple as I worship.
I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness;
for your promises are backed
by all the honor of your name.
As soon as I pray, you answer me;
you encourage me by giving me strength.
Every king in all the earth will thank you, Lord,
for all of them will hear your words.
Yes, they will sing about the Lord’s ways,
for the glory of the Lord is very great.
Though the Lord is great, he cares for the humble,
but he keeps his distance from the proud.

Though I am surrounded by troubles,
you will protect me from the anger of my enemies.
You reach out your hand,
and the power of your right hand saves me.
The Lord will work out his plans for my life—
for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever.
Don’t abandon me, for you made me."
Psalm 138 NLT

What a great passage! What a great God! To think that God's promises to us are backed by who he is; the Greatest One. His love is unfailing. Think about that. His love is without failure. Many things that we put our hope in fail. Failure is a fact of life. But Jesus' love for us is without the possibility of failure.

He gives us his strength to endure. He has great plans for us, and he works those plans out for us.

Are you facing challenges, crisis, or hopelessness? Remember the Greatest One is for you!
