Today’s Promise

Proverbs 10:28

The hope of the righteous brings joy.

How you see the future affects how you live today.

As Christians, we have a hope that stretches beyond tomorrow and into eternity.

A person with no hope quickly falls into despair. There is little to live for without hope. When you lose hope, you lose everything. Without hope, all of life fades to gray.

When we use the word “hope” we are usually expressing uncertainty about the future. I “hope” I get a raise next year. I “hope” our house sells quickly.

For Christians, hope is more than wishful thinking. Our hope is the confident assurance that in Christ, our future is secure. We see beyond the circumstances of today and see what God will bring about in the future. Hope is confidence in God.

Joy is the outcome of our hope. Joy overflows when you have hope for tomorrow. Fear, worry, and distress fall away as our hope grows.

As Christians, you have hope because,

You know that God is in control. Life is not an accident. God has a wonderful plan for your life. He has promised you “abundant life” in Him. You can be confident that God will bring good things into your life tomorrow.

You know that life is short and your eternity is secure. For the Christian, there is no fear in death because our hope is in Christ. We know that when we close our eyes in death, we open our eyes in the presence of the Lord. Your hope for eternity is secure in Him.

You know that God knows your needs even before you ask Him. God is fully aware of everything you are going through. God is never surprised by the detours of life. He knows the trials, struggles, and joys in your life. He is working in your life to bring about His will for your benefit.

Your life is filled with joy as you place your hope and trust in Christ. As you hope in Christ, you will experience joy as never before.

Look at that verse once again.

The hope of the righteous brings joy. – Proverbs 10:28

Confess this with me,

I have joy because my hope is in the Lord.
I don’t fear tomorrow because God is in control.
I have a confident assurance that I will spend eternity in the presence of God enjoying the joys of heaven.

In Jesus Name,

If you are living in joy today because your hope is in Christ, Let me hear an “Amen” in the comments below.
