But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear Him, on those whose hope is in His unfailing love. We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name. May your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in You. Psalm 33:18, 20-22
We are living in PERILOUS times, with a lot of uncertainties. The SECURITY of our Nation, the ECONOMY, UNEMPLOYMENT, HEALTHCARE (Obamacare), the EDUCATION of our children and grandchildren. IMMIGRATION, LAWLESSNESS, etc.
And now we are faced with probably the BIGGEST decision we’ll ever make as a nation, which is the election of a President, a Commander in Chief, who will determine the FUTURE of our precious children and grandchildren. There are MANY questions that we must answer and scrutinize concerning the choices we must make. It becomes a stressful time for many as we deal with all the other problems we face daily.
But I believe that the Psalmist of this particular Psalm, has the answer for us. And that answer is HOPE, but before we can really have HOPE, we need TRUST. We MUST have a strong TRUST in the Lord, in order to have HOPE in His abilities. The Psalmist says that the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear Him, and those who HOPE in His UNFAILING LOVE, this does NOT mean to be afraid of Him, but to hold Him with the UTMOST RESPECT and HONOR. Then we are able to TRUST His hand.
The Psalmist goes on to say that: We wait in HOPE for the Lord; He is our HELP and our SHIELD. Waiting is not an easy thing to do. We are people who want it done NOW. However, it seems that many times we are made to WAIT on the Lord. Waiting helps us to TRUST and gives us HOPE in God’s timing.
So as we face these UNCERTAIN times. We must HOPE in His UNFAILING LOVE, and TRUST His hand. And while we WAIT, we NEED to PRAY, and TRUST in His Holy Name, and have HOPE in Him.
If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to Him, then you have NO HOPE, and you have NOBODY to TRUST. You are LOST and DOOMED to an ETERNITY in Hell, the place of torment, torture, pain, agony and despair, with NO WAY of escape. But God is offering you His UNFAILING LOVE and wants you to experience HOPE in His UNFAILING LOVE, and to TRUST His hand. You can do that by: Coming to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your Heart that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God then ACCEPT His gift of Salvation and put your HOPE in HIM. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
