Psalm 43:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? Hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, Who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
We have no reason to be discouraged. We have no reason to worry. We are waiting on and trusting in God. This word hope here doesn’t mean or express any doubt rather it expresses anticipation. We wait on God expecting fully that in any moment He will do what He is going to do.
We will praise Him still. Things may be tough right now but we can know that just any minute He will step in and fix things. He always does and He always will. He is what gives me hope, health, and life.
The reason I can have joy on my face in the middle of trouble is that I know that at any moment He will step in. Trust God. Wait on Him. He is working and moving on your behalf.
