What are you in the midst of today?? Fill in the blank!
Is it a job situation? (you have a hope!)
Is it a problem in your marriage? (you have a hope!)
Is it a lost loved one? (you have a hope!)
Is it a hurt? (you have a hope!)
Is it a financial situation? (you have a hope!)
Whatever you may be facing today, remember you always have a Hope in Him! If you call upon the Lord!! We say that we call upon the Lord through our circumstances, but a lot of times I believe we just fold our little hands and sit back and say, “God, I’m waiting on you to get us through this” not even believing that He can (or wants to) bring us through it!
Jeremiah 17:7-8 says, “Blessed is the man that trusts in the Lord, and whose Hope is in the Lord. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, that spreads out its roots by the river, and shall not fear when heat comes, but its leaf shall be green; and shall not be anxious in the year of drought, neither shall it cease from yielding fruit.”
So what this passage of scripture is saying is that in times of trouble, the wicked are already impoverished and spiritually weak, so they have no strength to draw on. But the Righteous have abundant strength, not only for their own needs, but for those of others!!
I love that!!! I have been so depressed throughout my life that I couldn’t pray for myself, but when others around me began to pray, I literally would feel my strength coming back!!
1 Corinthians 15:19 says, “If our Hope is only here in this life we are going to be miserable people (that’s put in my own words), but our Hope is out of this world!!” That’s what I’m striving for!! I love my life!! I have a great life, but I’m focusing on my eternal life to come! Then I’ll really start living!!
When we Hope in Him, it’s like Joy Unspeakable Joy!
When we Hope in Him, then we will know without a doubt EVERYTHING is going to be all right!
When we Hope in Him, there is a peace that passes all understanding!
When we Hope in Him, we can sing the old song, “It is Well, It Is Well With My Soul!”
Be Blessed today!! Find that Hope today, it’s only through Him will you find it!!
My Tip Of The Day: Take someone upon your heart today and pray a special prayer. You never know, they may really need that prayer today!!
