April 13–Precious Promises–Day 13-Hope

HOPE-Psalm 146:5

Today’s Promise: HOPE
“Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God…” Psalm 42:11 (NIV)

Today’s Thought:
“Happy are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is in the Lord their God. He is the one who made heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them. He is the one who keeps every promise forever, who gives justice to the oppressed and food to the hungry.
The Lord frees the prisoners.
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord lifts the burdens of those bent beneath their loads.
The Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord protects the foreigners among us.
He cares for the orphans and widows, but He frustrates the plans of the wicked.
The Lord will reign forever.
O Jerusalem, your God is King in every generation !
Psalm 146:5-10 (NLT)

We have so many reasons to hope if we hope in the Lord.
Re-read the above verses and make a list of all the things the Lord has done for you, is doing for you and will do for you if you will put your hope in Him.
Then read your list, put your hope in Him and rejoice!

Today’s Prayer:
Dear God,
I am so glad that I have You as my Helper, every day and every night, every hour and minute.
I am so glad that I can put my hope in You, for You keep every promise forever.
Thank You, God, for what You have done in my life, what You now are doing and what You will do for me.
I know You are always at work in me and for me and that Your plans for me are for a future and a hope that is good.
I will rejoice and be glad today for the hope that I have in YOU because of Jesus and it is in His name I pray. Amen
