Hope in Jesus will never, ever disappoint.
He is faithful and unfailing.
Before I was saved, I placed my hope in so many different things, like physical appearance, attention from people, the way I acted, my dreams, my wants, etc. I was left broken and depressed each time, because, all those things failed me.
When I started following Jesus, I got new dreams and desires that weren't necessarily wrong or sinful, but it was (and has been) so easy to place my hope in those things.
And even though the desires weren't really wrong, when I placed my hope in them, I would end up feeling in despair and sadness, even brokenhearted at times.
When we place our hope in anything but Jesus, even good things, we will always end up disappointed because JESUS is the only hope that will endure and meet all our needs. He IS all that we need. He is all that will satisfy.
"And now, Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in You." -Psalm 39:7
What in the world are we waiting for if our everything is found in Jesus?
Place your hope in Him, because He will never, EVER disappoint.
