Clinging to Hope

Reflection by Guest Blogger Monique Mei of The Confident Womanhood

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see – Hebrews 11:1

In this awful time of uncertainty, we are all clinging to Hope. We are all searching for good news or reassurance that all will be right again soon.

In scripture, God assures us that He is our refuge, He is our stronghold (Psalm 46:1-3) Though the earth may give way, though the devil knocks at our doors, though our jobs are uncertain and businesses at the very doorstep of failing He says I will uphold you with my righteous hand (Isaiah 41:10).

We are only human but He is the Messiah, He is the redeemer, He is the rock and fortress and through all trouble, as hard as it seems and as impossible as the situation may look, He is by our sides. He walks with us and He will continue to walk with us though we may doubt, (we are human after all) though we may feel helpless, though we may feel lost.

Allow God to enter into your heart today, allow Him to take refuge in your soul and rid you of doubt, rid you of speculation. We cannot see Him, not physically but He is there and he is pleading with us to lean into His word and allow Him to take over.
