What are you hoping for?

Leaning up against a gas station wall stood a disheveled man, shivering from the cold. In Grand Rapids there are many homeless people and it is quite possible that he also fell into this category. 

In one hand he held his gloves and in the other he grasped a lottery ticket that he was furiously working on. Hoping it would be a winner. 

I wondered what else he was hoping for? Why would he spend the money that he begged for on such a slim chance? The odds of winning the lottery usually have odds 18 million to 1 and some have odds as high as 120 million to 1. 

With those odds it will take a lot more than hope to win the lottery!

Where is your hope? Is it put in something or someone that you can trust? You can put your hope in God! 
He is trustworthy. 

His word is trustworthy

The law of the LORD is perfect, 
refreshing the soul. 
The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, 
making wise the simple. 
Psalm 19:7

He is trustworthy

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The LORD is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does. Psalm 145:13

No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause. Psalm 25:3

But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me. Micah 7:7

He is the definition of hope-May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

Father, you are trustworthy and I put my hope in you and you alone! Jann
