20/20 Insight-Hope In God

November 11th, 2020

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Vision, today’s 20/20 Insight focuses on the heart of David to put his hope in God.

With hope, we have the confidence that God is at work in our lives, fulfilling some kind of purpose in us, whether we are aware of it or not.  

David lived with hope. He said in Psalm 62:5, “Find rest, O my soul, in God alone. My hope comes from him.”  

One way he expressed this hope was when he was hiding from a jealous king. He also looked after his parents during this dangerous time. So, he said to the king of Moab, “Would you let my father and mother come and stay with you until I learn what God will do for me?”  That is a statement of faith and hope. David believed that God would intervene on his behalf in the course of time.  

When we follow God, we may not know all of His plans for us, but we believe that He has a meaningful purpose for our lives, a blessed future, and love that stands the test of time.

Focusing on hope in Jesus Christ gives us greater clarity for living out the Christian life.
