My Hope is in God

In review of Proverbs 28:25 it says, “An arrogant man stirs up strife, But he who trusts in the LORD will prosper”

Bottom Line:
Selfishness only causes trouble. It’s much better to just trust the Lord.

What this means to me:
Selfishness and arrogance on my part will only cause trouble. It’s better for me to trust in the Lord. When I do, overall I’ll be better off, and I will experience a life that prospers.

Hope is faith reaching out in the darkness, with the assurance that I will feel the hand of God reaching back on the other side.  As a follower of Jesus Christ I can rejoice in the hope and the glory of God the Father. Without hope, joy gets suffocated. With God, there is hope for a brighter tommorow. It is the anchor of my soul.

As David said in Psalm 37, “I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their seed begging for bread.” God plants me by streams of living water, and whatever I do He helps me prosper in. My hope is in God!
