Hello everyone! I would like to welcome you today, to Moments Spent with God…through the Risen Hope Ministries! I am so glad that you came to spend some precious moments with God and I today and my prayer; is that we all will truly find these moments to be a time, when we can connect with God and the power that can truly help us overcome the difficult circumstances that enter our lives!
You know…I remember a time in my life, when I never thought that I could ever overcome anything through Jesus Christ. It seemed like the weight of each problem had taken me so low; that at that time, I could never imagine myself rising above these deep moments of despair; that I was experiencing at the time.
One thing I remember, while overcoming multiple surgeries and counseling for sexual abuse; is that God seemed to be keeping me suspended above these deep embedded problems, through music and even the things He would place within my thoughts. I remember a time, when the moments of despair actually made me feel as if I was in a deep pit. As I sat at the very bottom of this pit, I would think of ideas that could get me out of this pit of despair; but every time I attempted to climb out on my own, I would just fall back to the place, where I first began.
It was one day, when I was feeling no hope at all; that God entered my thoughts and helped me to see that the only way I could come out of this dark and hopeless pit of despair was through Him. Within my thoughts, I began to see a hand with a scar…reaching deep within my pit of despair and as I called up through the darkness; Jesus helped me to connect with His unfailing love, by letting me know within my heart; that He had just come down from an old rugged cross, to help me and save me from total destruction.
You know…the problems we face, definitely have a way of making us feel, as though we will never be able to rise above them or even overcome them; but I have come to see; that there is a god that is much stronger; then the weakness of our circumstance and His name is Jesus Christ.
One other thing I learned, during these very trying times in my life, was that I had to come to the place in my life, where I could admit that I was powerless. No matter what ideas I tried; they all seemed to fail, which only took me further down into my pit of despair…due to the disappointment I experienced.
Today, we need to truly come to see; that our only hope is in Jesus Christ. Think of it this way…if Jesus has the power to create all things and control every living thing; then why do we feel that He isn’t strong enough, for the problems we face?
One thing I found, while trying to climb out of that pit on my own; was that until I cried out for God’s help, rather than continually trying to climb those dirt walls of circumstance on my own; I never found relief or any piece of hope to hold to.
No matter what you’re facing today…cry out to Jesus! He’s already waiting to reach deep within your pit of despair and rescue you, from the clutches of evil.
Have a great day with God!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
