Devotions: Blessings of Hope in God

How blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
Whose hope is in the Lord his God

Psalm 146:5 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

This is from a wonderful psalm that praises God for His faithfulness and shows the danger and pitfalls of overly trusting people. People are finite, they only live a short time, and are sinful from the beginning. But God, He made the earth and everything on it, the universe and all it contains. He is completely faithful and just, and a generous provider. He performs miracles and provides comfort and courage. He gives protection and support, and punishes wrong doing in its time. He is the eternal God who will reign forever. The reasons to trust and hope in God instead of people are blatant and endless. What can man do that God cannot? How can man expect to do anything better than the Almighty? Why would we not trust God? Seek Him for help, hope in Him alone and be blessed!
