THOUGHT FOR TODAY: "What strength do I have, that I should still hope? What prospects, that I should be patient?” Job 6:11, NIV

Over the past few days, I’ve had several people relate to me the hopelessness of their situations. None of the stories have been so heart wrenching as the story of a quadriplegic friend, whose despair at never walking again sometimes drives him into hopeless depression.

What can I say to someone who has no hope? How do I answer the age-old question “Why does God allow us to suffer?” I truly wish I could answer that, but God, in his infinite wisdom, has chosen not to make me a confidante of his ways.

I have a friend who used to remind me not to write the end of the story before it happens. In Job’s case from today’s reading, he was lamenting his loss of family, property and health. If he had given up then, he would have missed the part where God restored his health, property and family and “blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the first”.

When faced with a hopeless situation, just wait awhile and watch God work! It’s a show I don’t want to miss!

PRAYER: Lord, thank you for the magnificent way you step in and resolve the problems of this world. Please don’t let me get so far into my own despair that I miss the show of your awesome power. Amen.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
