Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth; my flesh also shall rest in hope.
Yesterday's discussion focused on being in fellowship with God and the blessings derived from it, but today's focus is Christians' hope in God. The difference between the believer's hope and the unbeliever is that the believer's hope is with certainty that God will do whatever He promises. The believer's hope is based on a divine fact that God is faithful to His Word. Whereas the unbeliever's hope is more of a wishful thinking of what they will like to see come to pass.
With that being said, the believer has reasons to rejoice and be glad as his or her hope rest in God. Believers' hope is based on the fact that God promised a Savior Jesus came and redeemed us from eternally separation from God. What a blessed hope!
OT believers lived in hope of the coming Messiah and He came; we now hope for His return and He will. Therefore, believers can live with an assured hope of Christ's return for His church-believers.
Given the fact that the believer's hope rests in God these questions come to mind, Is your hope in God or man? Do you take confidence in the fact that whatever God promises it will come to pass?
There is no greater hope than in God.
