Many people feel unloved, unsure and insecure about their future. We live in a world that often equates human worth with status in life. Some may think that having a five year plan for the future, having a prestigious job, driving the fanciest car or wearing the most fashionable clothes is the answer to security, hope and love.
All of these things are nice to have, but none of them can bring lasting love, confidence or security into our lives. Jesus Christ is the only one that can fill our lives completely and give us true purpose.
He can give hope when we’re hopeless, help when we’re helpless, direction when we’re lost and strength when we’re weak. Romans 15:13 says, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
This verse is good news that we can believe and trust. We can be confident that God will do what He promised. As we trust His word, our lives will be changed. He will fill us with joy and peace and our lives will overflow with hope.
