“The king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. The war horse is a false hope for salvation, and by its great might it cannot rescue.”Psalm 33:16-17 ESV
Where do you find your hope?
I feel most safe when I can anticipate what’s going to happen. The unknown brings fear and anxiety for me. Over the years I have worked hard to find a peace in the midst of the unknown. I wonder, sometimes, if I will ever fully overcome my anxiety this side of heaven. My hope increases as I read the Psalms.
The psalms are full of honest emotions and helpful truths to cling to. In the midst of my anxiety I am believing a lie that I am not safe, I am not enough and I am not loved by my God. The Psalms remind us that our hope comes from who our God is and not on our efforts and works.
Truths to cling to …
- The Lord is our protector. Psalm 32:20
- The Lord hears us and will answer. Psalm 33:4
- The Lord is for the righteous. Psalm 33:15
- The Lord is very near in times of heartache. Psalm 33:18
