Psalm 25:3a
No one whose hope is in You will ever be put to shame.

There are a lot of people who open the newspaper daily and read the horoscopes. There are a lot of people who get their daily horoscope delivered to them via email, Facebook or Twitter. Don’t they all know how foolish that is? I mean seriously, if five-thousand people are reading the newspaper and 1/12 of them have the same zodiac sign as yours, then does everyone who belongs to that sign have the same horoscope each day? In other words, do you all find something shiny? Meet a new person? Go on a trip? Find a new job? If not then how do you know out of the thousands just who that zodiac prediction is for? Silly, I know.
That is why I love the Word of God. The Word of God is living and it is new every day. The Word of God is for every person and can be claimed by us all. Only God can back up His Word and do what horoscopes cannot. God’s Word can show us how marvelous He is, how much He loves us and just what power there is in Him. This is what we truly hope for when we place our hope in God. We hope that He is who He says He is, and when we rest in that hope God sees us and is able to work through us. God will never put us to shame or lead us the wrong way. Our hope in Him is safe and true. Let us pray:
Lord God, how I love Your Word and how it is new every day and brings to me hope that is mine to claim for a lifetime. Thank You, Father, for Your Word and thank You for Your Son Jesus in whose Name I pray. Amen.
