Psalm 100:3 NLT
Acknowledge that the Lord is God!
He made us, and we are his.
That’s what’s wrong with the skeptics. They don’t want to acknowledge God for anything. Things like hope, freedom, and security are found in knowing to whom one belongs.
Ever heard of a secure, confident, free orphan full of hope? No. Their world is small and full of fear and wishful thinking. The simple truth of knowing, acknowledging, and believing that God made me and I belong to him changes everything. I am not alone and left to my own devices. Hope stems from relying on something, and relying on God because I belong to him results in confident hope not wishful thinking.
Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.
Honestly, what do God skeptics have to rejoice about?
YOU are MY confident hope. I belong to you. I love knowing this! You make safety, hope, joy, comfort and freedom a real reality for me everyday and I am so thankful. I love you and pray in your Son’s name, amen.
