WHERE IS YOUR HOPE?
Put not your trust(hope) in man for he will deceive you.

Have you placed your hope in man? You are guaranteed disappointment, disillusion and eventually defeat. Man can not save you, only God can!

It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man who can make you a promise on today and break it tomorrow.
Like the weather, man changes from day to day, but scripture declares that our God changes not for He is the same yesterday, today and forever

Where have you placed your hope on today?
Who are you trusting for your healing, who are you trusting to bring back your wayward child, who are you trusting to save that unsaved spouse or family member, who are you trusting to save your marriage and your family, who are you trusting to for the breakthrough you desperately stand in need of? WHO IS IT?

Where is your hope? Life is short and eternity is a guarantee!
Hope in anything or anyone other than God guarantees you DEFEAT in the end.

The GOOD NEWS" is that you must first embrace the "GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST."
I urge you on today to confess with your mouth and from this moment forward, believe in your heart that Jesus died for your sins and that God raised Him from the dead and you shall be saved. Yes, it is that simple! Romans 10:9.

I beg and plead with you on today to no longer put your trust in man if this is where you have been placing your hope.
Why should you move from hope in man to hope in God? Man can not save you!
Just like you and I, every human is in need of a Savior.

The Words of God that God has put before us on today is the same Word of God that we will be judged by .
God's warning to all of us on today is "Do not put your trust in princes, nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help."
Rejecting the Word of God and choosing the words of man as your line of help will lead you to an end of eternal destruction, separated from God.
Let's listen to what God says concerning His Word in John 12:48-Whoever rejects Me and refuses to accept My teachings, has one who judges him; the very word that I spoke will judge and condemn him on the last day.
Where is your hope?
This question can no longer be ignored by any of us!
Two things we all will not avoid and that is death and judgment.
These 2 appointments can not be cancelled, rescheduled nor ignored. They are appointments WE ALL WILL KEEP.
If your hope is not in the Lord, WHERE IS YOUR HOPE?
What will be your reward in eternity if you transition from earth to eternity apart from God?
God is the anchor of our soul! Have you placed your anchor of hope in Him alone?
