How can those who sit in ruins break out in song? I asked a friend who knows and she said, “they sing in trust and hope”. They hope in the promises of restoration that God has given, here to Jerusalem, and in Jesus to every one of us wherever we are and whatever the ruins of our life. No matter how broken, no matter how hurt, no matter how wounded, Jesus has promised to heal and restore. And He promised that this restoration shall be greater than we have ever dreamed. And they trust in him who promised for, “No word of the Lord has ever failed.” From the memory of the Lord’s faithfulness in the past dawns the sure hope of his deliverance today.
