Earlier today, I was listening to the song, "My Hope Is In You" by Aaron Shust. I was moved when I watched the official video on YouTube. You see, the end of the story did not come out quite like you normally would expect. We want a "and they lived happily ever after" ending when the story has not yet ended.
It is easy to say that our hope is in God when we are not facing trouble. When you don't get the job, when the marriage blows apart, when you don't get healed, when someone you love dies and you continue to love and trust God; that's when your hope is truly in God.
Is your hope in God or is it in what He does or doesn't do? There is a difference.
