My Hope is in Him

Posted By marita on April 1, 2011

My Hope is in Him. 

Hope is the word that has been jumping out at me in my studies of scripture for the last month.  I just love it when I keep seeing a specific theme or word over and over in the Word.  It  is a confirmation of sorts.

The Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance for the KJV shows that hope is used 126 times. 68 in the Old Testemant and 58 in the New testement.

In Romans 15:13 God is called “The God of Hope”.  “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power  of the Holy Spirit.”

In Psalm 62:5 it says: “Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.”

Our hope comes from God and is found in him.  Hope is one of the 3 elements of christian character along with faith and love. (see 1 Corinthians 13:13.)  Our christian beliefs are centered on hope.

I challenge you to do a search and read some of the scriptures on hope and see where the study takes you.  It is amazing how just reading those scripts can lift your spirits.  After your study don’t forget to give God thanks for the hope we have in him.

Trust Him,
