I was reading the Psalms and came across a familiar theme: putting your hope in the Lord! The psalmist put it this way:
O Lord, You alone are my hope.
I’ve trusted You, O Lord, from childhood.
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!
~ Psalm 71:5-6 NLT
‘You alone are my hope’. I like that. I can relate to that. Early on in my life, I set my heart on following God’s path for my life. My goal wasn’t to build a business or follow a proven career path. My goal was just to follow God. To put all my hopes and dreams in God’s hands.
When you start, you really do not know where and how God is going to use you. You have no idea what paths God will take you down. You simply trust God. Solomon said it this way:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do,
and He will show you which path to take.
~ Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT
It has been an awesome journey so far. I have been involved with two national revivals. God has sent me to over sixty countries. I have seen hundreds of thousands of people make a commitment to receive Jesus as their Saviour. I have gotten to mentor dozens of young men and woman into full and part-time ministry. I have been able to work in great churches and train hundreds of musicians. I have seen hundreds of miracles and healings. I have experienced God’s supernatural supply countless times. God has blessed me with a great wife and family. Life has never been dull! I feel like my life has been a grand adventure!
Now I am waiting to see what God does next!…. ‘O Lord, You alone are my hope’.
Question: What are you waiting on God for?
