Our Hope

I opened my iPad yesterday and for some reason, the Bible app was open to a passage in Job where Job laments that his hope is gone deep into a pit.

My days are over.
My hopes have disappeared.

Where then is my hope?
Can anyone find it?
No, my hope will go down with me to the grave.
We will rest together in the dust!”  Job 17

Somedays, sometimes things feel that way.  I could cling to the no hope line and sit in a bottom of a pit. However, I know there is a hope, and  Job knew as well.

“But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives,

and he will stand upon the earth at last.
And after my body has decayed,
yet in my body I will see God!  Job 19:25
and what a hope it is!
Let us cling to the hope found in the Messiah. It can get us through the darkest of days and the deepest of pits.
