“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I WILL YET PRAISE HIM, my Savior and my God.” Psalm 43:5 NIV
Having hope in God is hanging in there while believing that at some point, as surely as the sun rises each day, we will eventually be saved from the things which afflict us.
Confessing “I will YET praise Him,” might not be at the faith level of “continually offering a sacrifice of praise” or “giving thanks in everything” but it is a good starting place!
Hope in a compassionate God who promises to not “break a bruised reed” or “extinguish a dimly burning wick” is all we need to cause our faith for a breakthrough to grow (Isaiah 42:3).
