I recently did some research and found out that the word “hope” was googled 1.7 million times in June of 2015. Please, let that sink in for a moment. This doesn’t even scratch the surface of the also 7.1 million searches for the word “depression” that were done the same month. The reality is, people are in need to help. People are in need of hope. People are in need of a purpose.
The Search Results
We live in a world that is constantly telling us to keep our brokenness to ourselves, when in fact this is just making things worse. We must understand that true hope can only be found in God, and that apart from him we’ll find ourselves swimming in a sea of disappointments.
-People will let you down.
-The world will let you down.
-Money will let you down.
-You will let yourself down.
Let God be the director of your life. He’s the host of hope.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”—1 Peter 1:3
If you’re searching for hope, God is your answer. Trust him.
