TOPIC: Have Hope
TEXT: Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord their God. — Psalm 146:5 (NIV)
Today is a day to be filled with hope. In fact, every day you walk with God can be filled with hope. All you have to do is choose hope over cynicism, hope over fear, and hope over all kinds of negativity. Hope will keep you positive, full of faith, and happy.
Most people who are unhappy in life are unhappy because they choose to focus on unhappy things. They see the worst in other people, they talk about what is wrong in their own lives, and they have a generally negative outlook. Hope does the opposite. Hope sees the best in others, it speaks about what is going well and declares good things, and it looks for the positive in the circumstances of life. Most of all, hope expects God to do something good in every situation. This is why hope makes us happy.
I urge you today to have a hopeful attitude. Like the psalmist, put your hope in the Lord your God—not in a job or a paycheck, not in a relationship, and not in another person. God is the giver of every good gift (James 1:17), and He wants to bless you. Expect Him to do something good in your life today.
PRAYER OF THE DAY:
Today, Lord, I choose to hope in You. I’m expecting You to do something good!
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this prayer.
I come to you, Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with you. I ask you to forgive me for all my sins. Wash Me Away from All Unrighteousness and Cleanse Me Clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord” and believe in my heart that God raised me,
Thank you for saying that prayer. You are in Christ now. Old things have passed away. HALLELUYAH
