As for me, I will always have hope;    I will praise you more and more.
Psalm 71:14 

We must never, no never, lose hope. The psalmist understood this and so should we. You’ve seen someone lose all hope. When the light seems to be gone from their eyes and joy is only a memory.

 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
Romans 12:11-12

Romans reminds us to be joyful in hope. Not hope in the world, or money, or some earthly idol. Don’t place your hope in never-lasting things.

This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance. That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.
1 Timothy 4:9-10

Believers are called to hope, encouraged to hope, even instructed to hope. For hope is the stuff faith is made of.

Where have you placed your hope lately? Is it something that will last, something that will continue long after you are gone? If not, maybe it is time to place your hope in the Everlasting God.

Lord, today I choose to hope in You.
