Who Gives Kudos:



God's Hope

 God's Hope

        Hope. The older we get the more we give up on it. We hold out hope for love, for the perfect career, for our dreams to come true. But then time passes, and our hope dwindles until there is nothing left. We put what's left of our hope in a box and hide it somewhere where we won't see it, where we won't have to think about it. We become bitter and angry at the suggestion of hope because we are slowly becoming convinced that the whole thing is a lie. We look back at all that has carried us to this point and wonder how we ended up in this desert.

The truth is most of the time we confuse earthly hope with God's hope. Earthly hope is a "here and now" kind of hope that is destined to fail. It fills us up in the moment but quickly fades away, leaving disappointment and defeat in its wake. However, God's hope is different. It is a "big picture" kind of hope. It replaces every "me" and "mine" with "Him" and "His." It reminds us that the goal of every hope is to bring glory to the lover of our souls. God's hope reads us the end of the story and triumphantly declares us the victor! God's hope cannot and will not fail! Once we understand this, we can dust off that hidden box and reclaim the hope that was intended to set us free from the chains of this temporary life.

Mood: None, or other
