Everyone needs hope.
Hope that although you may be going through a tough time, there is hope in the future. Hope that things can get better. If someone has hope, they will fight…they will hang on. On the other hand, if it seems there is no Hope a person may give up.
In the book of Isaiah the prophet is speaking to Israel. Israel has forsaken God and they were punished by being taken into exile.
But Isaiah comforts them by telling them that one day they will return from exile. He tells them that there is Hope in the future.
He says, “your sun will never set;
your moon will not go down.
For the Lord will be your everlasting light. Your days of mourning will come to an end.”
I love the imagery in that verse..”your son will never set and your moon will not go down.”
Think about that…every day the sun rises marking the beginning of a new day and then, it sets, marking the end of a day. But Isaiah says there is coming a day when our sun will never set and the moon will not go down. That verse paints a picture of an exciting day to come.
I don’t know what you are going through, but there is hope in the Lord.
Hope that things can get better.
Are you struggling financially? There is hope.
Are you struggling with an addiction? There is hope.
Is your marriage struggling? There is hope.
Are you struggling personally? There is hope.
Zig Ziglar says, “When there is hope in the future, there is power in the present.”
