Sometimes you come across a verse of scripture that you know you’ve read before, and it just strikes you in a new way. That happened to me while looking for an idea for today’s blog. I read this:
Fo He who promised is faithful. That is the reason we can hold to hope. Because God is God – unswerving, steadfast, faithful.
Hold to hope when our hope is I’m God, is like holding to a spire of granite in the midst of a rushing river. The water may swirl and slosh and threaten to tear us away from the rock, but the rock itself will not be moved.
He who promised is faithful.
So this Advent, may we hold on to hope, knowing that the hope. May we know He who made the promise. May we know He is faithful.
