Psalm 39:7 - "And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee
." A story is told of researchers who divided rats into two different groups and placed them in containers filled with water. The researchers would periodically pick up the rats from group one and immediately drop them back into the water. However, the second group was left alone. While the second group of rats drowned within 1 hour, the first group survived nearly 24 hours in the water. The first group did not survive longer because they were allowed to rest, as the researchers only momentarily lifted them out of the water. Instead, the researchers concluded they lasted so much longer because they held out hope that someone would at any time come and lift them out of the water. In other words, their perseverance was due to HOPE! Hope is a powerful thing. It is so powerful that when a person's life is filled with pain and negative circumstances and they are convinced it will never get any better, they commit suicide. In the Bible the word hope means confident expectation, and all of those who have repented of their sin and put their faith in Jesus Christ to save them can confidently expect to be taken out of this world one day and into his presence. The Bible calls this the "Blessed Hope" in Titus 2:13. Do you have this hope?
