Without hope, a person can languish in unspeakable distress. When there seems to be no resolution to a current situation, we often say things seem hopeless. That, my friend, is a very dark place to be – drowning in hopelessness.
Unfortunately, hopelessness is as old as time. In Psalm 42:5, the psalmist says, “Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.”
In the book of Job, hope is mentioned 18 times. In fact, one of my favorite verses is found there. Job 13:15a says, “Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him.” Who else is there, Love Heart, in whom you can truly put your hope? Who has the power or sovereignty of God but Him?
