It seems that we currently have no shortage of difficulty and pain to complain about in the world today. But, what does whining really do for us? Nothing in reality. Especially as Christians, for we have a greater hope. We have light in the darkness, strength in our weaknesses, and in the end, the promise of life when we face death. It is a daily truth, all of us need hope, yet many of us live as if we have never known it. We are all seeking something tangible and real to hold on to, and some are seeking it from a world that is passing away (1 John 2:15-17). Paul writes, “To them, God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.” (Colossians 1:27-28; emphasis added) We desire an unmovable foundation of hope amid life’s storms and tragedies. But how quickly we forget our great foundation, Jesus our Lord and Savior, when the wind and rain come. Remember, the foundation of our hope is none other than Jesus Christ, the one who rebukes the wind and waves. “For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 3:11; also see Mark 4:35-41). In the end, it actually does not matter who we are, where we are from, what we do, or whether we know it or not; we all desire and need the hope of God’s promises revealed to us by His divine Word. But how will we know them if we never read them? The question is, are we reading, listening, learning, and obeying Him while we wait in hope? Are we serving in anticipation of divine rescue from on high? Never forget that the hope of God does not, will not, disappoint. So, if you are not on the solid foundation of hope, it is not Jesus who moved. Maybe it is time for you to come home and rest in the arms of Jesus, the God who loves you always and is the unmovable foundation of hope.
