Although I feel almost crippled by my daily challenges and the looming future, I am strengthened by the truth that God allowed the Israelites to hunger in order to provide for them in ways that only he could. Consequently when we are humbled and completely dependent on the Lord in the wilderness, he teaches us to remember, even in times of comfort and abundance, that it is due to God’s faithfulness and power, not our own strength or wisdom.
Though I am uncertain of how God will carry us through and what the outcome of the days to come will be, I will fix my eyes with confidence on my eternal hope and faithful Saviour. I pray that one day I will have the privilege of seeing him work mightily through my circumstances so that I will be able to look back and proclaim, “Great is your faithfulness and love; and sure are your promises”. Until then, I will remember God’s faithfulness and promises.
You may feel completely at the end of your rope but Christ will be there always. One day God will turn our mourning into dancing. He will. The darkness will be no more, and our faith will become sight. Hold firmly to the hope you have in Christ, strengthen your weary heart with the promises of God and trust that the light will dawn again.
