Yet in the dark streets shineth
the everlasting light;
The Hope and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight
This Advent week we looking at HOPE.
Hope for the “fears of all the years”.
Fears of all the years – that is a lot of fears, over a lot of years!
Even in our own lives imagine if all our fears from all our years were written in one long list, how long would that list be? Some years there may be more entries than others, but still, I know for me that would be a very long list.
Yes Jesus is the hope for all those fears which we carry, sometimes we carry them from one year to the other, Yet Jesus.
Jesus is our hope. Our hope is placed in Jesus for our saving, our hope is placed in the fact that Jesus died for us, He has opened a way to God for us, He has gone into heaven before us to prepare a place for us and He will come back again to take us to our forever home.
So we don’t place our hope in the temporal, material, dispensable, fleeting things of this world, but we place our hope in the eternal, the everlasting, the imperishable, the truth and the trustworthy things of God.
Jesus alone is the answer to our hope and fears of all our years, let us place our hope in Him today, giving Him our fears and know assuredly that He will come back for a second advent when He will remove all those fears and tears from all for all time.
My prayer for you this week is that you will find hope for all your fears in the midst of your years.
