There is always hope

"We have acted unfaithfully against our God and have married foreign women from the peoples of the land, YET NOW THERE IS HOPE FOR ISRAEL CONCERNING THIS"(Ezra 10:2).

There is always hope, "Now let us make a covenant with our God..." (Ezra 10"3a). But the cost of covenant is always high. "to put away all the wives and those born of them according to the counsel of my lord (Ezra) and of those who tremble at the commandment of our God, and let it be done according to the law" (Ezra 10:3b).

Let us remember that the cost of our covenant with God was His Son, still, "faith is the substantiation of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen" (Heb. 11:1).

Hope springs eternal in the human breast.
