The King James language is so lyrical, and it speaks to me beautifully in these verses. It’s easy to rejoice when things are going well, but not so easy when life is tough. But here we so clearly see the value of conflict. There is a positive end result in times of suffering…it leads to HOPE. In the midst of the conflict, we aren’t alone. The Holy Spirit comforts us, strengthens us, and guides us. So rejoice, dear Christian! We are NEVER without HOPE.
