HOPE = to look forward to with desire and reasonable confidence.
What is “reasonable confidence”?
- …the economy?
- …your parents?
- …your pastor?
- …your savings account?
God says, “If you place your HOPE in Me [your reasonable confidence], you will never be disappointed.”
My HOPE is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ Name
When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my HOPE and Stay.
On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
