There is Hope!
“For there is hope of a tree if it is cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.” Job 14:7
The reality is that there are negative Hope and positive Hope in life. However, we must remember that God’s hope is better than any hope we may have and never cut-off. Hope in the word of God is the way we find the strength to stand up against all the odds and make the best out of every situation. Hope is the way we find peace and joy in life because God has given us this gift of hope. He gave us the ability to see through our troubles and make a difference in the world.
When there are multitudes of challenges, and things seem difficult, say and believe that there is hope. There is hope for every living man that trusts in God even though he/she fails or makes mistakes. Challenges and issues of life are inevitable; no man is born to live a problem-free life. We are all going to face one or two difficulties, but only the once who trust in the Lord will overcome.
In as much as you are alive, you have the hope to take-in the life of Christ; this is very vital. The book of John 16:33 says, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world”. It is the life of Christ that brings every other hope of being in our life.
Don’t allow the devil to make use of your mistakes to get at you by using men’s voice to say, “you can’t be successful in your endeavors,” as a result of your previous flops. Forget about the past failures and mistakes, get up and pursue after that which God has to lay ahead of you. In as much as you have God on your side and you trust Him, you will surely excel. All other issues of life are just part of trials of life, don’t ever give up. There is hope. Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in Christ Jesus. John 14:1
1. Oh! Lord, I thank you for assuring me of hope in Christ Jesus. I am thankful for your faithfulness.
2. Father, revive all my lost expectations and possessions in Jesus’ name.
3. In the name of Jesus, deliver me from all hopelessness and despair and bring me to the light of truth. Amen!
