“Remember the word to Your servant, in which You have made me hope. This is my comfort in my affliction, that Your word has revived me.” (49-50)
Don’t forget in the dark what you heard in the light. This is a bit of advice that’s stuck with me through many years and valleys. It’s something I try to remind friends in similar moments of panic.
When everything feels sideways and you feel like you can’t “hear from God”, take a deep breath and think.
What is a promise He makes in His word that is one hundred percent, all-the-time true? What is a promise you feel He’s given you directly? What were you sure of the last time you felt sure?
Sometimes the dark place feels so dark, we can find ourselves crying out to the LORD, “You remember the plan, right? You remember what You said?”
The truth of Who He Is, and the sureness of His promises, is always a good thing to circle back to in times of affliction. Don’t take your eyes off Him, lazar focus them onto His face. He is your hope.
