Confidence, Hope, and Trust

Confidence is praying for rain and then walking around with an umbrella.

Hope is planning for tomorrow because in reality tomorrow is not promised to anyone.

Trust is watching a child jump into his father’s arms knowing that he will be caught.

Every Christian should live in confidence knowing that God hears you when you pray.  Jesus Christ is your hope because of his sacrifice on Calvary, you have an eternal future with God.  You can put every one and every thing you love into God’s hands and trust Him to know what is best for you and for them.  God is God and has been God for a very long time.  He loves you more than you can realize, and He wants to give you life and life more abundantly. God has a destiny for you and if you have a personal relationship with Him, He will help you to stay on the path that leads to His plans for you.

The condition of our world today can cause you to live in fear or you can live in the freedom that the Lord wants you to have.  The Word of God tells us about the awful conditions this world will experience as we move closer to the end times, and you can see that what God said is coming to pass.  God is your anchor and you will have peace if you put your confidence, your hope and your trust in Him.  God has promised that ‘those who endure to the end will be saved.’  Draw closer to God and He will draw closer to you.  Nothing in the world is certain; actually it will all one day pass away, but there is one thing for sure and that is God is with you.  He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
