The Size of Your Hope

God’s Word says, “Put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with Him is full redemption” — Psalm 130:7

The size of your God
is the size of your hope.

We wear only rags of hope
when we put our hope
in small gods:
in plans, in people, in ourselves.
For the day always comes
when small gods
meet their match,
when life, or death,
green with consequence,
beats small gods into submission
then gloats, “puny god.”

Not so God Almighty!
We wear royal robes of hope
when we put our hope
in the Living God:
in His infinite love and redemption.
Already we’ve seen
His light and love
conquer wayward hearts.
And the day will come
when He returns and
beats all evil into submission.
