Day 3 Invisible Unshakable Hope
Remember your word to your servant, in which you have made me hope Psalm 119:49 ESV
A few years ago I became quick upset with my doctor after going through some minor surgery. On the appointed day of the procedure the nurse came in, the anesthesiologist put me under but I never saw the doctor. I was incensed that he would take my money, do his work and then leave without talking to me! But what my mind had told me was not the truth. My wife assured me that the doctor had come in and spoken with both of us after the operation. My problem was that I was still so affected by the anesthesia that my memory was playing tricks on me! Sometimes it works in that same way when we have gone through a spiritual crisis. But our heavenly doctor has not forgotten us. The one who has brought us through the operation will be with us in the recovery room! Our God is the invisible unshakable Hope that carries us through every storm!
