Psalm 119:81 ” My soul faints with longing for Your salvation, but I have put my hope in Your Word.”

In describing hope, Charles Spurgeon once wrote, ” Hope itself is like a star – not to be seen in the sunshine of prosperity, but only to be discovered in the night of adversity.” When life is going well for us, the promise of the future is bright & rosy and the commodity of hope is easy to come by. But when misfortune & difficultly suddenly come crashing into our lives…hope dries up. And when we’re consumed & exhausted by hardship it’s difficult to see hope…just like it’s impossible to see the stars shining during the daytime. But the stars haven’t disappeared from the sky, it’s just that we can’t see them. So we must then search to find hope in the night of adversity…looking for God’s promises in His Word and His grace in times of distress.
