BEHOLD, YOUR HOPE

“Behold, I am the Lord of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me” (Jeremiah 32:27).

Though not often heard today, “Behold” is a word found over 1500 times scripture. In fact, it bookends the entirety scripture; appearing first in Genesis 1 in association with the creative works of God (v.29), to its final usage in the last chapter of Revelation and the proclamation of Jesus, “Behold I am coming quickly” (22:12). Behold means to see with attention, and is used most often in relationship to what God has done, is doing, and will do. Wisdom would demand we give greater heed when this word appears in our study of scripture. Regardless of the circumstances, God is doing something, and you can be certain it will be something to behold.
