My Hope

David wrote in Psalm 39:7, And now, Lord, what wait I for? My hope is in thee.

In the Bible, the word "hope" is a sure thing. It isn't a sighing "oh, I hope so" accompanied by doubt. It's something you can count on. It will happen, because God promises it.

I am thankful for the hope we have in the Lord. One of my favorite hymns expresses the believer's hope so well. It is aptly titled "My Hope is in the Lord."

My hope is in the Lord
Who gave Himself for me,

And paid the price 

Of all my sin at Calvary.

No merit of my own

His anger to suppress;

My only hope is found

In Jesus' righteousness.

And now for me He stands

Before the Father's throne.
He shows His wounded hands

And names me as His own.

His grace has planned it all.
'Tis mine but to believe,

And recognize His work of love,

And Christ receive.


For me He died;

For me He lives,

And everlasting life

And light He freely gives.

  1. One of my former pastors said that Biblical hope is "confident expectation." Love that.
