With so much going on around us from natural disasters to political ruckus to senseless murders etc, etc..... We can feel overwhelmed and say to ourselves "Is anything going to work out in a good, truthful, loving way"? The Hymn "My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less" has been on my lips the past few days. Let these sink in:
Verse 1: My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
Refrain: On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand, All other ground is sinking sand.
Verse 2: When darkness veils His lovely face, I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale, My anchor holds within the veil.
Verse 3: His oath, His covenant, His blood, Support me in the 'whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way, He then is all my hope and stay.
Verse 4: When He shall come with trumpet sound, Oh, may I then in Him be found;
Dressed in His righteousness alone, Faultless to stand before the throne.

Wow! Yes, Yes and Yes!
David wrote in Psalm 62: 1-2 "Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from Him. Truly He is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will never be shaken." Verse 8 says "Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge."
In Psalms 27: 13 & 14 David declared " I will remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the Living. Wait for the Lord, be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord"
I am going to stand on these powerful declarations- how about you!?
God is big enough, strong enough, powerful enough and loving enough to handle ANYTHING!
