Hope Gives Joy in Affliction

Still They Speak

“This hope fills the afflicted soul with such inward joy and consolation, that it can laugh while tears are in the eye—sigh and sing all in a breath. It is called ‘the rejoicing of hope,’ Heb. 3:6. And hope never affords more joy than in affliction. It is on a watery cloud that the sun paints those curious colours in the rainbow. ‘Rejoice in hope of the glory of God, and not only so, but we glory in tribulations.’ Rom. 5:2,3
–William Gurnall “The Christian in Complete Armour” (Banner of Truth) Vol. 2, p. 144
