Daily devotional: Put my hope in the Lord

Scripture
Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God, the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them—the LORD, who remains faithful forever.
Psalms 146:5-6 NIV

Observation
We are not to put our trust in mortal men (v.3) but rather look to God for our help and our hope. He sustains us and provides for us!

Application
Look to God for my help and hope. Rely on the Holy Spirit living in me rather than on myself.

Prayer
Lord, You are awesome! As a human, I want to rely on myself and do things my way. But I recognize that Your ways are higher than mine, that Your thoughts are much greater than mine. So I fully trust in You and put my hope in You. Please lead me, help me, and continue to provide for me as You already do in amazing ways! Thank you so much for loving me and taking extravagant care of me. I praise and worship You, my God and my Savior!
