Note: Hope for restoration in our relationship centered on godly values means we need to be in the Word and to interact as much as possible with those who follow Christ.
“I keep my eyes always on the LORD.
With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,”
• Barnes: “The word used here means “trust, confidence, security.” It is the opposite of despair. As used here, it would refer to a state of mind in which there was an expectation of living again, as distinguished from that state of mind in which it was felt that the grave was the end of man.”
“You are my hiding place and my shield;
I hope in Your word.”
• Pulpit: “The promises contained in thy Word are my only sure hope.”
Our Hope:“Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy,” Psalms 33:18
