Finding Reason for Hope

“Great Is Thy Faithfulness”, wrote Thomas Chisholm (1866-1960). This hymn assures us that even in times of great fear, tragic loss, and intense suffering we can find comfort and confidence as we trust in God’s great faithfulness.

21 This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.

22 It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Lamentations 3: 21-23 (KJV)

Do not lose hope; leave everything for Lord. Be a witness to Lord’s mercifulness and give hope to someone today.

It was shepherds who announced the coming of Messiah. The birth of Christ was an experience in wonder. A wonder-filled life is yours when you know the Christ of Christmas.

“and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them”.

The New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2011), Lk 2:18.

How to be faithful to God?

It’s not easy. You will need to ask God for help to be faithful. Perhaps, this is a quick reminder that, we are dependent on our heavenly Father for everything. There is no need to boast about anything. The Psalmist long ago identified our dependency on God. Please keep praying in order to be faithful.

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.  Psalm 51: 10-12 (KJV)

Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another; and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. Malachi 3:16 (KJV)
