In his widely acclaimed devotional book, My Utmost for His Highest, Oswald Chambers (1874–1917) writes about Gracious Uncertainty, declaring:
“To be certain of God means that we are uncertain in all our ways, we do not know what a day may bring forth. This is generally said with a sigh of sadness; it should be rather an expression of breathless expectation. We are uncertain of the next step, but we are certain of God.”
Does that describe your life? Uncertain of the next step? Could you say you are certain of God, or would you like to be? Throughout Scripture we find story after story of people who have stepped out in faith with breathless expectation of what God will do with their life, even in the midst of uncertainty.
So, why is hope needed? That’s the topic we will explore week three of our four-part series on the Gift of Hope. Join us Monday evening, July 23 or Wednesday morning, July 25, to dig into God’s Word and discover how hope is vital for life.
