“My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less” – Now Think On This by Steve Martin

March 6, 2020

“When God wanted to guarantee his promises, he gave his word, a rock-solid guarantee – God can’t break his word. And because his word cannot change, the promise is likewise unchangeable. We who have run for our very lives to God have every reason to grab the promised hope with both hands and never let go. It’s an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God where Jesus, running on ahead of us, has taken up his permanent post as high priest for us, in the order of Melchizedek.”  Hebrews 6:17-20, THE MESSAGE

Do you know what we can have each day? Hope! And what kind of hope? A hope in the ETERNAL God, the Savior of our souls, the One Who (even better than President Trump) has made promises and keeps them! (Sorry, I just had to add that political part…to see if you were awake.)

I woke up this morning knowing that even though I have been “quarantined” from my uptown Charlotte accounting contractor job for 14 days after my return trip to India on Feb. 21, 2020, (for having a cough that I have had for years, as my good wife Laura Jean can attest to); ended up in ER two days ago for rectal bleeding; previously on Monday I had to make the decision to cancel a gathering the Lord had given me as an assignment to again attempt to do, back in October 2018, after a year and a half of preparation (canceled due to facing an $8,000 cost with only 11 registered with less than a month to go)…and prostate biopsy today…

He has given us ETERNAL HOPE! Yeah, Lord!!!

And as the old hymn still sings, “My hope is found on nothing less!”

Read the words from the hymn, “My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less (On Christ The Solid Rock)” by Robert Critchley

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly lean on Jesus name

On Christ the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

When darkness veils His lovely face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

His oath His covenant His blood
Supports me in the ‘whelming flood
When all around my soul gives way
He then is all my hope and stay

On Christ the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand…

Yes, my friends, we will always have the hope BUILT on nothing less than Jesus Himself. That is our eternal guarantee for those of us who believe and keep our eyes fixed on Him.

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2, NKJV

Nothing less!

Now think on this.
