Our journey through life is filled with challenges. They can make or destroy us. As we face our challenges, in whatever form they may come, let us face them with hope and faith. Some things might be hard and harsh to bear. Hope teaches us that God is in our storms. The things that might seem humanly impossible, He is able to perform and do above our expectations. Let us keep hoping and combine it with faith.
18 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” 19 Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead.
Let us look beyond our problems and trust in the power of God. When we are troubled, let us think about the ways You've strengthened and sustained us through the years. Let us not give up hope but trust in your power to do great things in our lives.
Because the hand of the Lord my God was on me, I took courage.
