Hope In The Lord

Proverbs 13:12
Although difficulties are woven into the very fabric of life and many are designed by God to draw you close to Him, He also knows that a constant onslaught of problems can frustrate you and cause you to give up in despair. That’s why He frequently sends relief and answers to your prayers. Sometimes you can get by without the whole problem being solved immediately. But you desperately need a glimmer of hope to know that God is with you and that He will eventually work everything out. But how can you know that God even desires to do good to you? Because He promises this repeatedly in His word stating clearly that He will supply what you need, bring peace to trouble situations, and relieve intense pressure. When an unknown psalmist was downhearted and discouraged, he prayed, “I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I do hope“ (Psalm 130:5). He put his faith in God’s promises.
