Move From Despair to Hope With This Powerful Psalm 103 Promise

by | Jun 20, 2018 | Woman

May I take that out of your way?”

Slow, Slow, Slow

I hate when the waitress asks that question. That means those with whom we’re having dinner have finished their meals, and it’s a sign for me to hurry. Tough to do because chances are I’m still munching away and have a half-filled plate of food still in front of me.

Why I eat so slowly is a mystery I’ll never figure out. Some tease, saying it’s because I talk too much during meals. But I have tried eating in silence. It didn’t work.

I’m still the last one to finish, wa-a-a-ay after everyone has ordered dessert, cups of coffee and run out of conversation.

I guess I can ask for a doggy bag … but they always end up in the trash.

Our friends are too polite to complain. And hubby never expresses impatience. Take that back—one day he did say he’d bring a book to read while he waits for me.

He Will Always Stick Around

But no matter what, I know he’ll stick around with me until the end. He always has and I’m confident he still will.

God is also like that. He’s with us till the end—whether we’re in the middle of a conflict, writing a book, dealing with broken relationships or just figuring life out—He’s with us till the end.

Why?

“For this God is our God for ever and ever; He will be our guide even to death” (Ps. 48:14).

So …i f you’re wondering who’s going to stick by your side no matter what, here’s another promise for you:

“‘O my God, do not take me away in the midst of my days—Your years endure throughout all generations.’ From before You have laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. They shall perish, but You shall endure; indeed, all of them shall wear out like a garment; like a robe You shall change them, and they shall pass away” (Ps. 102:24-26).

People disappoint you, but His love still pulls you forward. Circumstances turn dark, but His light of hope still shines.

Let’s Pray

Father God, every one of us has felt alone at times … abandoned … without hope. But your words to us through the Bible are clear: You are with us. You will be our guide to the end. May we lean on your promises to be with us always. In Jesus’ name, amen. {eoa}
