From Psalm 124
Hope from Today's Reading:
"We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped!" (Psalm 124:7)
I prayed she wouldn't get sick, and she did.
I hoped it wouldn't end like this, and it has.
I begged God not to let him go, and he's gone.
When life brings us to crossroads like these, it's easy to think, It's too late. It's hopeless. What's done is done.
But do not forget the God you serve—He raised Lazarus from the dead, He delivered Jesus from the tomb, He defended Daniel from the mouths of starved lions, He protected three loyal followers even from the smell of smoke after hours in a furnace filled with fire.
What's done is done when He says it's done.
And even when the worst comes, when the dreaded thing happens, when you pray and pray and pray, yet still find yourself caught in the snare, remember the snare can be broken. There is still a chance of escape. “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible" (Matthew 19:26 NASB).
