HOPE-note 15

“God has more ropes, ladders and tunnels out of pits than you can conceive. Wait. Pray without ceasing. Hope.” -John Piper

“Master” said David. “don’t give up hope. I am ready to go fight the Philistine.”


Would a young boy with a sling and stone be the answer a King would think of to save the nation and fight the great warrior giant Goliath? How incredible would it seem to Saul, King of the Israelites, that this boy would volunteer? How desperate must he have been to accept the boy’s offer? How doomed did the Israelite army feel watching David take the field of battle?

And yet, David did volunteer. Saul did say yes. Goliath was defeated! Only God could have orchestrated this miracle.

What Goliath is taunting you today? What problem seems so big that it makes you feel so small? You can’t reason the answer, and neither can I to our greatest struggles.

But have hope! The hope of David and of Saul. God’s miracles still exist today, and they remain just as unpredictable. God’s answers will always be astonishing.

God’s miracles, His answers, are the reason to HOPE!
