Isaiah 49:23 (NIV) ~ Those who hope in me will not be disappointed.

Isaiah 49:23 (NIV) ~ Those who hope in me will not be disappointed. 

Oh, what a glorious panoramic picture of His unfailing love towards us. The portrait of His hope for us is captured on the canvass of the Bible, for all to see. The signature is written by a Master Craftsman whom you can fully trust and depend upon. The signature of God is written within this cheque book of faith. It is a place where we come by faith and receive His promise for our lives. For the Bible says in Hebrews 11:6 (KJV), “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” He rewards our faith in Him and our hope in Him, for those who hope in Him will never be disappointed.

Here we pause to take in the majestic view of His faithfulness.  We have a “Selah moment” meditating on this amazing word from the LORD. We gain great comfort from this promise, “Those who hope in me will not be disappointed.” Our eyes survey this haven of peace, and there a heavenly source of strength is found in abundance in the beauty of our text for today. This verse of Scripture alone lifts our spirit; it edifies our soul and satisfies the deepest hunger of our heart. Isaiah 49:23 (NIV), “Those who hope in me will not be disappointed.” 

His hope never disappoints us! When we put our trust solely in the Saviour, and when we lean upon His breast to hear the beating of His heart, we hear it beating with love, faithfulness and hope, and His hope never disappoints us. We trust not in the arm of flesh to deliver us, nor do we, in misplaced allegiance, lean on someone other than the Lord in our times of need, but we look to Jesus, for He is our hope! And as the Bible says in Isaiah 49:23 (NIV), “Those who hope in me will not be disappointed.” 

My friend, what is it that you are hoping for? Whatever it may be, turn it over to Jesus, put your hope in Him, for those who hope in Him will never be disappointed. Lean into Him and put the whole weight of your trust upon this promise of God, and let Him show Himself strong on your behalf. Let Him be true to His word for you today in this magnificent awesome promise from Isaiah 49:23 (NIV), “Those who hope in me will not be disappointed.” 

God bless you my friend, Matthew.

  3. Ran across this blog post on Google this evening as I was trying to remember the reference for the verse “those who trust in Me will never be disappointed.” So glad I couldn’t remember the reference because, in doing so, I was led to your post :) Reading this truly spoke to my heart. Thank you for allowing Christ to work on and through your life as an example to others! God bless
