Blessed are those whose hope is in the LORD!

I love Psalm 146 as it is rich with promises of hope for today and your future. It begins by praising the LORD and then offers reasons for such praise and urges us to hope in the LORD and ask Him for help. Have a wonderful day as you put your hope in the Lord.

“Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD their God. He is the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them – He remains faithful forever.” Psalm 146:5-6

Do you know what it feels like to be without hope, stuck in behaviors you can’t seem to change, or in circumstances that leave you powerless, where you look ahead and see only darkness?  When people are without help and hope in life, they can fall prey to anxiety and depression, seek relief in addiction, or live with the heavy weight of oppression and bondage.

There is help and reassuring hope for those who trust in the LORD.  Psalm 146, beginning in verse 7, outlines His promises and the reason we should hope: “He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous. The LORD watches over the alien and sustains the fatherless and the widow…”

Reread the verses. Hear Him promise to help you and give you hope. Cry to Him for the help you need. Bow down before Him. Look to Him for hope. He has ultimate power and authority. He hears your cry and answers you in the midst of your valley. He gives you what you need, regardless of your life circumstances. Yes, He is your ever-present reassuring hope – past, present, and future. Take His hand today, let Him walk with you….all the days of your life!

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
