"My Hope is Built on Nothing Less"

Updated: Apr 8, 2021

The world is a powder-keg just waiting for the right spark to set it off. One misstep, one miscalculation, one knee-jerk reaction and we could turn the world into a burnt-out cinder. That is how precarious things are. These are days of uncertainty and foreboding. Men’s hearts are failing them through fear. But there is an enduring hope that will never fail.

I don’t know what you have placed your hope in, but my hope is not in America, the “Save America Movement”, the “American Dream”, “Making America Great Again”, the American church, politics, the political process, political candidates, political agendas, political posturing, political parties, political platforms, political correctness, governments, constitutions, legislation, democracy, laws, rulers, moral crusades, social causes, “cultural correctness”, Trump, Biden, the Republicans, the Democrats, the Supreme Court, democracy, capitalism, socialism, BLM, riches, my portfolio, Wall Street, the “Bill of Rights”, the military, the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, saving the whales, going green, Greta Thunberg, good intentions, my good works, my talents, my ministry, sincere people, the goodwill of men, science, technology, miracles, religion, conspiracy theories, humanism, someone else’s faith, Christian leadership, church celebrities, church fads, sensational “happenings”, “best sellers”, spiritual formulas, signs & wonders, some church, some pastor, people or anything this world can ever offer.

As the words of the old hymn says:

"My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.

I dare not trust the sweetest frame,

But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.

If your hope is in any of these then your hope is on sinking sand and not the Rock.
