Casting in Hope
“Ship your grain across the sea; after many days you may receive a return.” Ecclesiastes 11:1 (NIV)
We should take great hope in knowing that our God will come through and we will reap in due time, when He deems best. We wait, but we don’t wait in despair like those without hope. We may feel abandoned or doomed, but we know our circumstances will change, either on earth or when our Lord returns. The healing will come.
When we give ourselves to prayer, sowing in faith, working for sake of others, we are casting our hope toward Heaven. When we invest our focus, time, and resources in the advancement of our Lord’s glory we are casting our hope in Jesus Christ.
Let’s pray today to stay focused on God’s faithfulness and not to wavier in our hope.
