Jesus is our hope – our only hope. Apart from Jesus there is no other hope. It’s Jesus and Jesus only. Anything else that you hope in or cling to is less than the enduring, sustaining hope found in Christ and Christ alone.
“In Christ alone my hope is found, He is my light, my strength, my song. This cornerstone, this solid ground, Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.”1
Dear sister, are you in a drought or a storm? Regardless of where you are, Jesus is the solid ground. He is your strength, your light and the song your heart beats to sing. Crawl, walk, skip, run to Him who is your hope and rest, knowing that in His presence is where you belong.
“What heights of love, what depths of peace, What fears are stilled when strivings cease. My Comforter, my All in All; Here in the love of Christ I stand.”2
“For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ~~ Romans 8:38-39
May it be so, in Jesus name, that you know, believe and stand firm in this truth: Christ and Christ alone. In Him and through Him is your hope, your strength, you life, your being. Selah. Are you persuaded?
