Hope in Christ is my sure place. On Him I can rely.

“I am standing in absolute stillness, silent before the One I love,
waiting as long as it takes for Him to rescue me.
Only God is my Savior, and He will not fail me.
For He alone is my safe place.
His wrap-around presence always protects me
as my champion defender.
There’s no risk of failure with God!
So why would I let worry paralyze me,
even when troubles multiply around me?
God’s glory is all around me!
His wrap-around presence is all I need,
for the Lord is my Savior, my hero, and my life-giving strength.” ~ Psalm 62:5-7, TPT

“For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” ~ Isaiah 9:6, NKJV

Hope in Christ. He is Faithful

Lord, You ARE the Mighty God, the Prince of Peace. You are all things to all people … if only we would believe and take You at Your Word. Your Word never fails. It is sharper than a two-edged sword, dividing spirit and soul, discerning the thoughts and intents of the heart. Your Word has taught me that surely I must place my hope in Christ alone.

While the world is crumbling, You are our sure place.

While evil abounds, You are our Refuge, our Strongtower.

When our thoughts are flooded with despair, we will always find hope in Christ.

We will always find hope in Christ.

Lord, thank You for hearing us when we cry out to You. Thank You for Your tender watch-care as Your eyes roam to and fro across the earth seeking Your child who needs to be encouraged.

Your love is beyond imagination. Your faithfulness more than can be measured.

Why do we worry so? Why do we allow the things of this earth to steal our joy and fill us with fear? We have You as our shield, as our constant companion to lead us and guide us, to make the crooked places straight again.

And You always do. You always straighten the crooked places and create streams in our desert place.

Because that is who You are.

I Choose to Place My Hope in Christ Alone

You are Wonderful, Counselor, Almighty God and the Prince of Peace. You are our Deliverer, our Healer, Our Provider and Friend. You are the One whom my heart loves and I will always trust in You.

I will choose to place my hope in Christ alone because I know that I know You will never fail me.

In Jesus’s Name I pray,

Amen — let it be so
