Matthew 12 Devotions by Stephen Taylor

Matthew 12:21

“In His name the nations will put their hope.”

 

The name above every other name. Thank You, Jesus! If hope was a currency, then where are we spending ours? In people? Money? Stature? Power? Yourself? Or is it in the Lamb of God who gave His life so that we could have this hope and freedom? Are we putting it in the only One who can truly deliver and save us or in things the world tells us might help?

 

Hope is found in Jesus Christ. He brings it freely to all those who believe in Him and call on His name. If our hope remains in human ability and human things, how desperately disappointing and sad of a life that would be. Christ knew our names before our parents ever gave us one. He paid for our sins before we ever committed one and gave us hope before we ever knew we needed it!

 

We live in a world that tells us to trust everything but God, but God is the only One we can always trust with everything. Everyone and everything in this world will let you down at some point. None of us is perfect. We live in a fallen world, but we don’t serve a fallen God. God Almighty, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are perfect, trustworthy, and true! They will never leave nor forsake you.

 

If you are covered by the blood, you are covered by His promises, and let me tell you, the Bible is full of promises to His people! In the Bible, hope is the confident expectation of what God has promised and its strength is in His faithfulness.”

 

Romans 15:13 - I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

God bless! I love you all, but He loves you more! Glory, honor, and praise now and forever to Papa God, Jesus Christ our Risen King, and the Holy Spirit!
