Recently the Lord asked me to make a list of the things I was thankful to Him for. As I started on the list I soon realized that not far into it I was feeling hopeful, thankful, and a deeper love for the Lord.
There is a scripture that says that David encouraged himself in the Lord.
".....but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God." 1 Samuel 30:6 KJV
This was a place where David's life was in danger from his own people. He turned to the Lord to find his hope as David did it was displayed in a child-like faith. If God said it the David believed it.
Are you placing your hope, trust, child like faith in something that is here on earth? If it comes before God its and idol in your life. Let the love of God show you a better way. He has your best interest in heart. He loves you so much.
Place your hope in the Lord.
He is the only one that is faithful.
