“This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast…” – Hebrews 6:19

There is an old saying: “When a person loses hope, they begin to hope for death.” Life is hard without hope. Life becomes drudgery, misery, meaningless. One reason people lose hope is that they put their hope in the wrong things—beliefs that disappoint, unrealistic dreams, and even disillusions about life, other people, and oftentimes, even God.

But God never disappoints. He gets blamed for a lot of evil that people do, but God is the One in whom we want to place our hope. Why? Because God always wants the best for us. His Word says, “I know the plans I have for you, to give you hope and a future.” God always loves us. God’s always faithful. Even in death, He gives us hope. In His Son Jesus, we see that God understands the pain of death and offers us the hope of victory over death. And when we have hope over death, we can begin to live hopefully every day. So, where is your hope?
