Acts 2:25 King David speaks….I saw the Lord always before me, for he is at my right hand that I may not be shaken; therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced; my flesh also will dwell in hope.”
My flesh will dwell in hope…
I have learned over the years that no matter what challenges or disappointments I face, I always have had hope. I always have had Him. I always have had His promises and His truths. But have I dwelled in that hope like David did?
Did His hope permeate my flesh…my being…my soul. Or did I just hang on to those words and walk in faith and trust?
He says that He will never leave us. He will not abandon us. I have read those words so many times and clung to them. And I realize that by walking in faith and trusting…I am dwelling in His hope, somewhat like David did. I am dwelling in His presence. I cannot do this life alone. I cannot trust in anything that I do or say. I will always fail. But He is stronger. He is consistent. He is faithful. How I long to dwell in His presence all my days. To put aside the matters of this world and to just focus and listen…to Him.
I will praise Him for His goodness and greatness. I have a passion that can only come from Him, that I want to live a life worthy of Him and to honor him. I trust in His promises, His word, His life, His love, His fruit.
My flesh will dwell in hope. When there is no other explanation. There is hope.
