There is much talk today about how our leaders will bring an end to this quarantine -- with heated debate and strong feelings from many angles. No matter what political party we support, when we place our hope in anything other than God – when it fails, we are lost. Whether it be our leaders, our job, our bank accounts, or anything else, there is nothing on this earth than cannot fail. Hope isn't just a thing that exists in the air that we can breathe in and breathe out. However, we all have access to it, and to certain degrees can make it part of our life. But in order for hope to take hold in our lives, we must place it somewhere, or attach it to something. The choice of where to place our faith is one of the least talked about but most consequential decisions of our lives. In Matthew, it says, “In his name the nations will put their hope.” Today, make the decision to place your faith in Jesus and let all things in your life flow from this change.
“In his name the nations will put their hope.” – Matthew 12:21 ESV
