Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 05/04/14

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

SONY DSC“Blessed are those … whose hope is in the Lord their God.” (Psalm 146:5)

We who believe live under the blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ; we cannot be separated from His love. Regardless of the trials of life we face, regardless of the troubles before us, we are not to despair like the world despairs, for we do not hope like the world hopes. We are not to worry about tomorrow for He holds tomorrow in His hand. We do not trust in riches; we do not trust in power or works. We trust in the name of Him to whom we belong, Jesus Christ. Our hope is not a vain wishfulness; our hope is the assurance of life in Christ and Christ alone, now and forever, for He who promised it is faithful, and His word is true.

May the blessed hope of Jesus Christ rest upon you this very day and give you peace.
