But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and He will stand upon the earth at last. – Job 19:25
Have you ever lost hope? What keeps you from giving up when all hope seems lost? Sometimes, hope seems to run away and hide within the darkness of despair. At times like these, what does the Christ-follower do?
These words from Job are an excellent reminder of where all hope lies. Write them upon your heart so that you will never forget them (or at least on a card where you will often see them).
Our Redeemer … Our Defender … our God and Savior … LIVES! All hope is NOT lost. The victory is ours. Take hold of your hope and lead it out of the darkness of despair into the light of this truth. Though it may at times be hidden, hope is NOT lost. It is just waiting to be found.
Hope is some extraordinary spiritual grace that God gives us to control our fears, not to oust them. – Vincent McNabb
