The Necessity of Hope

From Series: Comfort In Chaos

Isaiah 40:31  (ID: 1522)

When uncertain circumstances confront us, Christians should strive to speak clearly and display steady composure. Alistair Begg explains that this response to difficulty results from waiting on God. “Waiting,” though, doesn’t just mean inactivity. Instead, it involves a commitment to unfaltering obedience, unwavering trust, and uninterrupted communion with God that demonstrates the reality of our genuine hope.


31but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;

they shall mount up with wings like eagles;

they shall run and not be weary;

they shall walk and not faint.
