Where is God? Why has He left me out in the cold? There seems to be a promise of better things, but it’s always ahead of me out of reach.
Haven’t we all thought those things?
Here’s the good news. No, not good news. Great news! You see King David was thinking the same thing in Psalm 42:3
He goes on to say twice in that Psalm alone: “Hope In God.” You see, King David had a multitude of experiences where the natural circumstances looked like God had gone on vacation. The hope was in the inviting “yellow house” of promises always ahead and just out of reach. One of those times He said, “I encouraged myself in the Lord my God.” In fact, search the word, “encourage” in your your bible (or let the great internet tool “Crosswalk.com” help you with that). You’ll discover renewed courage from just reading some of those verses, yourself.
There are no words of encouragement like God’s Word to help pick up your soul and refresh your courage, today.
You may find hope in other places, but it’s the words of scripture that are your final authority and your lasting encouragement, discernment, and strength. Don’t try to live your life, today, without them!
