DECEMBER 9 – HOPE

12/09 Psalm 71:1-12
1 O LORD, you are my refuge; never let me be disgraced. 2 Rescue me! Save me from my enemies, for you are just. Turn your ear to listen and set me free. 3 Be to me a protecting rock of safety, where I am always welcome. Give the order to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress. 4 My God, rescue me from the power of the wicked, from the clutches of cruel oppressors. 5 O Lord, you alone are my hope. I’ve trusted you, O LORD, from childhood. 6 Yes, you have been with me from birth; from my mother’s womb you have cared for me. No wonder I am always praising you! 7 My life is an example to many, because you have been my strength and protection. 8 That is why I can never stop praising you; I declare your glory all day long. 9 And now, in my old age, don’t set me aside. Don’t abandon me when my strength is failing. 10 For my enemies are whispering against me. They are plotting together to kill me. 11 They say, “God has abandoned him. Let’s go and get him, for there is no one to help him now.” 12 O God, don’t stay away. My God, please hurry to help me.
HOPE
Hope isn’t something that is just wished for. Hope knows that God is there and that He will do what He says. He is our strength. He is our protection. Praise the Lord Jesus is alive.
