Trust And Hope

I was meditating on Jeremiah 17:7 which says, “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.”  Matthew Henry: It is to make the Lord our hope, His favor the good we hope for, and His power the strength we hope in.  They shall be fixed in an inward peace and satisfaction.

Most of the time hope is spoken of in His word as eternal, yet hope can speak of trust.

The Lord gives us wise solutions, yet our hope is not to be in the solution but on Him for the outcome.  Our hope is to be in Him and our expectation is to watch His work unfold without stressing but maintaining inner peace.

We pray specifically for our need, but leave the outcome totally up to Him so that He is glorified.
