I definitely felt encouraged by reading this earlier.  It’s neat (but hard) to think about the reality of walking by faith and not finding my hope in what I see or the immediate external circumstances

Where do we find hope in hopeless situations? When life is collapsing, and our prayers don’t seem to be answered, and our strength is waning, where do we turn? How do we know that God is still with us?

We turn again to the cross.

Do you see the nails going into Christ’s hands? He took those nails for us. Do you see the blood pouring from His body? He suffered for us. Do you see the Father turning His back on the Son? It was for us. Do you see Jesus enduring the wrath of God? He endured wrath so that we could experience mercy…He treated Christ as our sins deserved, and He treats us as Christ deserved.
