Going through a challenging time in your life? Frustrated with certain people or situations? Ready to give up on your marriage or job or future. Martin Luther has a message for you:
Hang on. God will remain faithful. Don't despair. Cling to the truth the psalmist proclaims: "Wait with hope for the Lord. Be strong, and let your heart be courageous." (Psalm 27:14). The Lord won't extinguish a smoking wick but instead will make it glow brightly. He won't break the damaged cattail but instead will strengthen it (Isaiah 42:3).
