My Hope is in You!

by Cathy Weymouth

Tuesday 2/15/11 Leviticus 25; Ps 25-26; Acts 22 - My Hope is in You!

S - Psalm 25:3,5,21 - No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.  May integrity and uprightness protect me because my hope is in you.

O - The word HOPE jumped out at me when I read this psalm today. In Hebrew the word is Quavah; it means to bind together by twisting, to be joined, to expect, to lie in wait, to look for patiently, to hope, to be confident, to trust (Zodhiates Hebrew Greek Key Study Bible).

A - I am going through a difficult situation right now that is discouraging me a bit.  I needed this reminder to put my hope, my trust in my Lord and to wait expectantly for His outcome.  I love the message version of verses 15,  "If I keep my eyes on God, I won't trip over my own feet!" And verse 21 - "Use all your skill to put me together; I wait to see your finished product!"

P - Ah Lord, I put my eyes on You in this situation.  I wait to see what will come of it. I bind myself together with you and wait upon You. You are the God of Heaven and Earth and even these situations that try to trip me up.  My hope is in You!
