“Help me Obi-wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.”

When we think of “hope” most of us usually think it of it as an action.  “I hope that the Packers win.”  “I hope for a good job.”  “I hope today goes well.”

The thing is, though, this isn’t hope.  At least not how God sees it.  Hope is a state of mind, a state of body, a state of self.  And there is really only one place our hope should be, and it isn’t Obi-wan.

Do a biblegateway.com search for hope and every one has something to do with putting our hope in God.

God is firm.  He is truth.  God is the hope.  Hope comes from Him.  We hope in Him.  There isn’t much else that matters.

Hope in God does not dissappoint. – Romans 5

God is the hope that know no bounds. – Psalm 65

Hoping in earthly things: comfort, possessions, wealth… is futlle.  Only true hope in God can outlast life and overcome death, sin, and suffering. – Job

There is only one hope. – Ephesians 4
