Our Hope Is In The Lord

“There is surely a future hope for you and your hope will not be cut off.” Proverbs 23:18 (NIV)

Here we are entering the last month of the year 2020. To be honest, I am getting a bit weary of hearing people say all kinds of negative words about this year. Sure, it has not been the easiest year, but it has not been the worst, either. Humanity has seen events in our lifetime that have tried our faith, our strength and our livelihood. Yet, the world keeps on turning and somehow, we learn to thrive.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made us realize that life is even more fragile than we thought it was. It has also made us realize that we are strong, even in our weakness; that we can overcome hardships and that we can unite our forces to make things better for the world as a whole. It has made us recognize how very dependent we are on the Lord.

It was in the year 2020 that we had to learn to walk around wearing facemasks. It was also in the year 2020 that one of the most largely sold household products was hand sanitizer, because we have learned that in order to keep the virus from entering our bodies, we must keep our hands clean at all times. Sadly, it has also been in the year 2020 that we learned that in order to envision a future where we are together, we must keep a socially acceptable distance of six feet from anyone around us.

The Bible is filled with stories where God’s people were told how to behave during certain situations. In order to stay safe, there were guidelines and rules the people had to follow. Likewise, during current times, there are rules we must follow in order to ensure our wellbeing and the wellbeing of others.

It is important for us to remember that the same God who has kept us safe in 2020 will be with us in year 2021. No matter what awaits us, our hope does not lie in the wisdom of man alone. Our hope lies in the promises of the One who knows best and He gives us opportunity after opportunity to be better and to do better. Let us welcome 2021 with the faith and hope that spring from His throne.

“Thank You, Lord, for giving us another year in which to see Your hand of deliverance upon our lives. You are our Savior and Deliverer and we love you. Amen.”

For His Glory
