Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 03/03/13

This week’s scripture is from Isaiah:

“I will wait on the Lord … And I will hope in Him.”   (Isaiah 8:17)Man holding arms up in praise against a sunburst

In all things the Lord is our hope. In this world, nation rises against nation; the enemies of His people take counsel together; and men seek solutions without God. In our own lives troubles rise against us; it seems we are never far from turmoil, hardship, or pain; none of us escapes unscathed from the things that come against us whether illness or injury, adversity or persecution. Yet there is one in whom we can trust to stand by us, to be there for us, for when all is against us, He is for us. We know our hope is not in this world or in this life, our hope is in Christ, and Christ alone, and not far off, but here and now. If we wait upon Him, we will find He is already here, for He is faithful and true, and He loves us and saves us.

May you always find your hope in the Lord as you wait patiently upon Him.
