How can anyone experience joy amid so much chaos and sorrow? Circumstances can let us down, but God’s promises can sustain joy. For example, when God rescued Israel from slavery, they shouted for joy even though they were still in the middle of the wilderness, far away from the land God promised to give to them.

Read: Psalm 105:42-43, Exodus 15:1-3
