Fountain of Hope

For with You is the fountain of life...

Psalm 36:9

The more knowledge we acquire, the less wisdom we seem to have. The more economic security we gain, the more boredom we generate. The more worldly pleasure we enjoy, the less satisfied and contented we are with life. We are like a restless sea, finding a little peace here and a little pleasure there, but nothing permanent and satisfying. So the search continues! Men will kill, lie, cheat, and steal to satisfy their quest for power, pleasure, and wealth in the hope of gaining peace, security, and happiness.

Yet inside us, a little voice keeps saying, “We were not meant to be this way—we were meant for better things.” We have a mysterious feeling that there is a fountain somewhere that contains the happiness that makes life worthwhile. We keep saying to ourselves that somewhere, sometime, we will stumble onto the secret. Sometimes we feel that we have obtained it, only to find it elusive—leaving us disillusioned, bewildered, and unhappy.

The happiness that brings enduring worth to life is not the superficial happiness that is dependent on circumstances. It’s contentment that fills the soul even in the midst of the most distressing of circumstances and the most adverse environment. The only true source of peace and contentment is in the Lord Jesus, just as the Bible says: “For with You [O Lord] is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light” (Psalm 36:9).

People need not live with a spirit of doom; the Lord Jesus provides the only ray of hope that shines as an ever-brightening beam in a darkened world.


1 Timothy 6:6-10.


God of Grace and Wonder, I Pray today Father, asking that You grant me wisdom knowledge and understanding knowing that Godliness with contentment is a great gain and that the love of money is the root of all evil. I ask this, in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
