Our Hope - August 10, 2015

Isaiah 26:2-8(GOD’S WORD Translation)
2Open the gates, and let the righteous nation come in, the nation that remains faithful. 3With perfect peace you will protect those whose minds cannot be changed, because they trust you.

4Trust the Lord always, because the Lord, the Lord alone, is an everlasting rock. 5He has brought down those who live high in the towering city. He levels it. He levels it to the ground and throws it into the dust. 6Feet trample it, the feet of the oppressed,the footsteps of the poor.

7The path of the righteous is level. O Upright One, you make the road of the righteous smooth. 8Certainly, we wait with hope for you, O Lord, as we follow the path of your guiding principles. We want to remember you and your name.

When you really get down to it, there isn't much you can do for yourself in this world. Yes, we might brag that we are self-made, or that we have done this or that for ourselves, but God is the one who has made all things possible; believe it or not.

He gives everyone every opportunity to follow Him, but not everyone will do so. For those who do, He will make the way easy, though at times it may seem very rough. If we wait and place all of our hope in Him, He will lead us where we should go.

Trust in the Lord, because He, and He alone lasts forever.
