God, The Source Of Our Hope

It is very tempting for Christians to forget that our hope is in God alone. Along the way, we get depressed and discouraged by whatever goes on around us. When political turmoil increases, our distress increases. When our currency fluctuates, our sanity fluctuates. When things get gloomy, we become gloomy ourselves.

If God is our source of hope for salvation and eternal life, and this we attest to one another, then why is it we find so difficult going when our health or wealth goes down? Why is it we become so easily affected by the negative words of people which is to the detriment of our spiritual and emotional well-being?

All these speaks that we must return to our true source of hope, and that is God himself.
