Is There Hope?

After the announcement of the ANC party election results, there was a clip of Helen Zille saying that there is still hope for South Africa. I ask: what hope? Is Zille really the source of hope? Are we to rely our hope and our trust on one person and her party?

These days it's difficult to put your trust in any one person or group. Confidence is in short supply, especially in these difficult days in South Africa.

Contrary to what I've said above, I'll state what we do want to hear: there is hope. This hope is not founded on people, parties, on the ACDP or on Rev. Kenneth Meshoe. Rather, it is founded on God. Of all the things that have come and gone, the Bible has been a steady source of wisdom for thousands of years, and despite attempts against it, has stood its ground. This itself is reason for tremendous hope.

Here is some inspiring Scripture from Psalms 37:7-11 (NIV) to give you hope for today:

"Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when men succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.

8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
do not fret—it leads only to evil.

9 For evil men will be cut off,
but those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land.

10 A little while, and the wicked will be no more;
though you look for them, they will not be found.

11 But the meek will inherit the land
and enjoy great peace."
