I am counting on the LORD; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word.” Psalms 130:5 NLT
As Christians we can put our hope fully in the Lord. He is trustworthy and He is reliable because He is eternal. We can count on Him.
One of the key ways we count on the Lord is by putting our hope in His Word – the Bible. The Bible is God’s revelation of Himself to us and it explains His unfolding eternal plan for our salvation. God loves us all and He wants to be in relationship with each and every one of us. This is the central theme of the Bible.
In many ways the Bible is really God’s great love letter to all mankind. In it we find God’s love and salvation, and also a great hope for the future. Because of what God has done and is doing, we can trust what the future holds. We can trust that He holds the future because of what is written in His Word.
In a recent sermon I talked about the importance of being a Bible focused church. We do this when we all become Bible focused as individuals. This then flows through to when we meet together for encouragement. We all grow stronger as we grow together.
Lord I thank You for Your Word – the Bible. I thank You that it reveals who You are, how we can know You and that we have a great future with You. I pray that as I read the Bible my hope in You will grow stronger each day. Help me to live this life by the power, love and principles found in Your Word. Amen
