I Hope

Today's reading: Psalm 130:1-8

What a beautiful picture of God's offer of forgiveness and the hope that we have for eternity as a result. And, yes, while there is waiting now (verses 5 and 6), knowing that we are forgiven and redeemed allows us to wait eagerly and with expectation of our incredible heavenly future.

What does hoping in God's Word (vs. 5) and hoping in the Lord (vs. 7) mean to you? How do you explain or describe your hope to someone who doesn't know Christ? What about to a believer who is struggling? Tami

"As a watchman waits for the morning." I appreciate it when the Bible repeats itself (I know I often need to hear things more than once to grab on).
The watchman knows morning IS coming. I imagine fatigue and impatience plagued them in those last hours before sunrise. But probably not doubt. The morning had never failed to come; and neither will the Lord.

Hope in the Biblical sense is not mere wishful thinking. It's confident expectation.
