What do we do when all efforts have been exhausted?
What do we do when we have nothing left, having prayed continually and acted in good faith? All we can ever do is to remain hopeful in God!
Though it sounds simple, hoping in Him requires unwavering trust. We trust in His good character, word, and will in order to carry out what is best for us.
Hoping In Him
Isn’t hoping in others hard to do, especially when they have disappointed us in the past? I think so!
I find that my hope and trust easily wain because of the inconsistencies of human nature. And so I’ve learned to quickly become doubtful and distrusting.
But with God, the more I try to do my own thing, the more He allows me to wander around lost in my distrust. And so it becomes a lesson in understanding who He is.
So how do we understand who He is in order to remain hopeful and trusting in Him? We turn to Scripture, which gives us the understanding of God’s unchangingly good and perfect nature!
