FINDING HOPE IN A CORRUPT WORLD, Part 2
The present world problems do not create anger, vengeful talk, bitterness and aggression in me. This is unlike so many others today. Why? Because I have HOPE as the anchor to my soul.
Everyone needs an anchor because life will bring storms. Often dark clouds roll into our lives and unleash torrents of trauma. It may be a failure, betrayal, disaster, or even a death.
Yet, a powerful, underneath force can be the authentic HOPE based on the biblical promises of God. This is the way God outstretches His loving hand to us with His gift of HOPE.
What are some of these promises?
- We will not be disgraced for trusting God, so we have HOPE. Psalm 25:3, 5
- God gives us HOPE as we believe in Him, and we can overflow with HOPE. Romans 15:13
- God gives us HOPE for our future. Jeremiah 29:11
- God helps in every trouble. Psalm 34:17-20
It is impossible for God to lie. When we allow God to be in control, and not our circumstances or people, He becomes our unfailing anchor with His unfailing promises to give us HOPE.
The writer of Hebrews says it this way: “We have this HOPE as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” Hebrews 6:19
