Are you frustrated, depressed or even in despair because you are facing a situation out of your control? You are not alone. Disappointment and hopelessness can hit anyone, at any time. Unfortunately we live in a dark and unstable world.
For the past few months, the word hope is tugging at my heart. Hope is an attitude, a desire of expectation for a certain thing to happen. The belief that something good is about to happen. Situations will work out no matter what the present circumstances.
Hope is a positive and encouraging word. When everything around us seems gloomy, this word has the power to restore our joy and peace. Practicing hope will keep us stable and secure until we see positive outcome or solution. Some of my deepest hopes and desires took time. Even a few took three, five or even ten years before I saw them come to pass. Today I am still hoping in faith for certain things to take place. So never be discouraged if you don’t see results overnight. Keep your eyes on God and keep standing!
Here is an encouraging promise: “Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners who still have hope! I promise this very day that I will repay two blessings for each of your troubles ” Zechariah 9:12
My friend, God is not a liar. What He says, He means it. So, let’s do our part by believing and confessing these promises, not letting go until we see them come to pass. I encourage you to persevere, continue to stand fast and firm. After you have done all to stand, stand some more because “Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of these is love” I Corinthians 13:13. God loves you. He will see you through.
In your captivity or struggle don’t let go, don’t give up! Fix your eyes on the Lord where your help comes from. He will surely hear your cry, see your faith and come to your rescue.
What promises are you standing on?
May the Lord continue to strengthen you and give you wisdom in this hour. Be strong and courageous. You are more than a conqueror and have what it takes to overcome.
