Confident Hope


Lord, my heart is not proud. My eyes are not haughty. I don’t concern myself with matters too great or too awesome for me to grasp. Instead, I have calmed and quieted myself, like a weaned child who no longer cries for its mother’s milk. Yes, like a weaned child is my soul within me. 

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!


O, child of God, put your hope in the Lord—now and always. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.


I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope He has given you as a rich and glorious inheritance. I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.


(Psalm 131, Isaiah 26:3, Philippians 4:8, Ephesians 1:18, Romans 15:13)
