The Hope We Have Been Given
When you deal with real hardship, raw optimism and positive thinking don’t help. Smiles and denials won’t change anything. When you’re going through the storm, you need something bigger than you to hold onto. You need some deep roots anchored in truth to withstand the wind and the storm. Through proclamations and prayers, the psalmist continues to celebrate God’s word, and in these verses in Psalm 119, he points to the hope we have in God, rooted in the truth of Scripture.
