We believe that God raised the dead back to life. We’ve read the numerous resurrection accounts throughout the Bible.
But what about a person whose life is completely shattered? How can you hope when it seems like there is no way forward? Maybe it seems like death is the only thing left to look forward to.
Even if you are in such an extreme and helpless situation, Job says there is still hope.
“For there is hope in a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that its’ shoots will not cease. Though its roots grow old in the earth, and its stump die in the soil, yet at the scent of water it will bud and put out branches like a young plant” (Job 14:8-9).
Then he said:
“If a man dies, shall he live again? All the days of my service I would wait, till my renewal should come” (Job 14:14).
With God, there is always a second chance!
