Yes, Summer is over…
“The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.” – Bible or Not?
The author of this quote was talking about more than just the times and seasons. This is more about despair. The circumstances of life can sometimes make us feel like too much time has past, and opportunities are gone, and all hope is lost. Hope is never lost.
If you are feeling hopeless today, here are a couple Bible verses from the Apostle Paul to consider:
“We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.” – 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 NKJV
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 8:35-39 NKJV
And what about the source of today’s quote? Yes, Bible. There was a time when Israel was taken captive to Babylon, and the prophet Jeremiah saw it coming. He mourned for the people and in his anguish said, “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.” (Jeremiah 8:20 NKJV).
Let’s also remember that Jeremiah prophesied of Israel’s return from Babylon after 70 years had passed, and that did come to pass. There’s always hope.
