“For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” (Romans 15:4 in the New International Version of the Holy Bible)
The Word of God gives us hope. Reading the Bible encourages us to endure whatever we are going through and that gives us hope.
There are many examples similar to what we are going through found in the scriptures. These examples of real life characters who persevered despite difficult situations gives us confidence that we can too. Hope is the ingredient we all need to make it through this life.
Years have lapsed since the Bible was authored and yet the Word of God remains steadfast and for us today.
Prayers: Thank You, Lord, for Your Word. It speaks to me when I am feeling overwhelmed with my situations. It’s not an out-of-date book. It’s current and gives me hope. Amen!
