Possibly many of us feel down today, without strength, without hope, without knowing what to do, and we feel that our soul is in a prison that we believe we can not leave. Those servants of God in the Bible suffered all that, but they kept believing always in God, with their foreheads always held high because they had their hope in the giver of life.
The psalmist David wrote:
9 I say to God my Rock, “Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?”
10 My bones suffer mortal agony as my foes taunt me, saying to me all day long, “Where is your God?”
11 Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
Psalm 42: 9-11
