Daily JIM : Hope in the Lord


In the world today we throw the word ‘God’ around so easily; choosing to forget who we speak of. The words ‘God’ and ‘Jesus Christ’ are used fearlessly on a daily basis to curse and swear. Blasphemy has become the norm and sadly, even professing Christians have forgotten who they are speaking of.

Our mighty God spoke creation into being. By the word of the Lord were the heavens made. We need to remember who God is.

We are reminded today that the word of the Lord is right and His works are done in truth. We are reminded that we should rejoice in the Lord. We are reminded that there is no man strong enough and that we should fear the Lord. We are reminded that we should stand in awe and that His eye is upon them that fear him.

We are reminded that when we hope in His mercy He keeps our souls from death and that He keeps us alive in famine. We must wait on the Lord and know that His mercy is upon us according as we hope in Him.

When reading these words, in these times we see that God has left these words so that we would have hope. God has left these words so that we would hang on to Him, to His truth, to His promises.

Stand in awe

Today, re-size God, re-prioritize God, stand in awe, rejoice in the Lord, beg for a renewed fear of the Lord and a renewed appreciation of what our Father did for us on that Cross. When Jesus suffered and died, it was for you. God loved you that much.

As we read Psalm 33, as we ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth of these words, the depth of meaning and the magnitude of God and His plan for us, His people, let us stand in awe and rejoice in the Lord. Let His mercy be upon us as we hope in the Lord.

Bless you today in Jesus name.

Our soul waiteth for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.

Psalm 33:20
