Don’t grow weary in doing good. Don’t grow faint because of fear. Don’t lose heart. The world today does indeed look grim. But there is great hope. It isn’t hope in you or me and our strength; it’s hope in the faithfulness and power of Christ. Lift your weak knees, unless they are bowed down in prayer to the One who saves. God isn’t asleep—he’s awake and active in our midst.
