August 31

“We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.” Psalm 33:20-21 (NIV)

Whatever our responsibilities and our plans let us remember that we need God’s help. So we put our trust in Him and look to Him for guidance, for wisdom, for courage, and for patience – to name only a few of our needs. As we look to God for His help, we expect Him to give it. And the attitude of expectation is really what is meant by the word “hope” as the Bible uses it. So when we wait in hope we are really expecting God to do something for us. And waiting in hope is really a matter of trusting. Trusting brings assurance and there is joy and rejoicing for us today in this kind of expectant trusting.
